This week I start my next placement, this time on the ante natal ward. I haven't worked in a hospital setting before, so I approach this with some trepidation......................
or I did until today! I asked another of the students, who has been on the ward for a week now, how she was finding it and what sort of things did she do. O dear her mentor spent a lot of time crying,and then on day 2 her mentor handed in her notice! apparently wrong drugs being given, notes going missing and equipment is a bit thin on the ground - so now I am worrying a wee bit about how the heck I am going to fair!
Wish me luck for my first shift which is a long night shift (12.5 hours!) on Wednesday night.
