“I started my partnership on Tuesday. My preceptor only works Tues, Wed, and Thursdays. Due to class and work, I am only with her on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Tuesday, I had a patient come in with DKA. I was able to help figure out the bolus and drip rates for their insulin infusion.
Today, Thursday, was AMAZING!! My first patient came in with a kidney stone, I followed her to CT for that. Then I had a patient come in with a STEMI and I also saw another patient come in with SVT and I watched her cardioversion. I also treated a GI bleed and a little baby whose stroller fell over, and she scratched her face pretty bad. My patient with a STEMI was life-flighted out of the hospital, so I got to call life flight!!
It was great to see all the dynamics for the ED< and it was also pretty cool to be a part of these codes.”
