Due to my knowledge and use of supply items when working in nursing service I currently handle the ordering of supply items for the Veteran's. I have my own account for the supply website and this is a job I take great pride and have much enjoyment in doing.

I worked in psychiatry for many years within the VA system and it was here that I learned to conduct small searches of rooms looking for contraband of any type. I also interviewed patients when we admitted someone. If there was an incident I would have to interview the patient to gather facts and information of the event that took place and write reports when I was finished. Teamwork was a big part of working in this field. That is a very important aspect of a good work environment when there are many people.

Additional Information:

In my yearly evaluations my supervisor recognizes my duties as a supply tech within the pharmacy. Other techs know they can come to me and I do my best to find the product for the Veteran. I try my hardest to make sure the Veteran gets exactly what they want and will work with them until we get it right. I work with the doctor's via email and try to guide them in helping them to order the correct product for pt's. If script's run out I email doctor's asking if they can put in a new one so I can fill the Independence Medical order. I have pt's that do ask for me. We have very good communication and it's about working as a team to get items correct and ordered in a timely manner.

In ’94 I started working for the Dept of Mental Retardation. I worked there for 5 years and enjoyed this job. I helped mentally challenged adults with ADL’s, getting to and from appts, day trips and dropping them off at their day programs. Part of my duties was keeping daily notes of the residents day. Transcribing medication and documenting and things that the next shift or the house manager should know about. Maybe a certain behavior that was displayed, refusal of meds, poor appetite or just not seeming themselves.
