I think I'm looking forward to my trip next week. I leave for Tupelo Monday around 5, fly into Birmingham and drive 2 hours to Tupelo. Not looking forward to the last part because I probably won't get on the road until 8 or so.
On that trip, hopefully will learn a lot more about my role as SW for my company. ALSO, I am sure I'll come back knowing how to use the tablet. I'm already making some progress..
Had to make my trip reservations (fight, hotel, car) through the company's booking system and ended up in a middle seat on one of the flights! Was able to go on the Delta website and pay for seat upgrades to Delta Comfort and NO middle seats!
Have enjoyed being out with all my coworkers, shadowing them. I've been out with an RN during an admission and a return visit, the Chaplain who I love on 3 or 4 visits, an LPN on 3 visits, and one of the SW from the home health care side (I'm on the hospice side). She was very helpful in just getting the rhythm of the visits and with the tablet! I think when I get back, my boss will go out with me to make sure I'm ready. I have to keep reminding myself that it's ok "not to know" stuff.
