A typical day at work is usually 6-8 patients with a very heavy workload. Unlike other hospitals, there is no security team/system, and there is only 1 porter on the site at all times, if we are lucky enough to have one that day. As a nurse, you are responsible for way too many odd jobs, such as unclogging toilets, escorting patients to their vehicles upon discharge, and preparing and delivering your own patient for tests such as CT/ECG/Xray. Very heavy workloads, usually under staffed. Could use more nursing equipment, and more nurses.
