On the second week of CSS Students in the Philippines, their target of having clinical experience started, each and every one were assigned to different areas. Some are in the ICU, while the others are in the ward, there are few who had their early exposure in the delivery Room, Operating Room and emergency Room. Every day there’s a rotation to different area together with their “Filipino buddy” and in four days a week each can Experience different way of caring with Patients.
Every after Lunch everyone was talking with their new and different experiences, there are ones who assisted in an Operation while others were able to watch a Normal spontaneous Delivery, those who stayed in the ER were so amazed of new techniques they learned and their Participation with some Code and Emergency interventions. On the other side, those who were assigned in the ward was able to follow and adjust with the other way of taking vital signs and writing the Nurses Chart. In two to three weeks of their duty in the hospital others were able to do the Morning care alone, write a better Nurses notes and adapt the different way of taking care with the patients. The Hospital staff was very glad with their improvement and appreciated their effort in cooperating with them. Even the Doctors were Open on showing them the way of Operating and taking care of the Patients in different ways, because of this their exposure wasn’t only for them to learn but give them more which is having a good interaction with their Coworkers.
Their weeks of stay here was really fast but surely enough for them to appreciate their duty in the hospital. Everyone wants to lengthen their stay in the place but it’s time to go back home, carry their knowledge and apply their skills.
