Registered Polysomnographic Technologist (RPSGT) in Hoboken:
"Be Kind, Do Your Job Right And Help People Sleep Better."
Hard to stay awake when you switch to these long night shifts. Must prepare your home to be able to sleep well during the day ie: Eye mask, ear plugs, black out curtains. Hard to learn at first but, gets easier as you practice and learn more. Some nights will be tougher than others. Have a good bedside manner and know your place in your environment. Be able to interact with people. Know when to keep your mouth shut and when to talk. Learn your rights as well as the patient's rights. Do not let your patients take advantage of your kindness. Do a good job but understand, you can't please everyone. You can only please most and help as much as you can. As long as you understand that you did everything you possibly could do to help and satisfy your patient, go home happy. Leave your work at work. Read patient history if you can, it will help you expect the unexpected. Make sure you are performing the correct study. Fact checking. Make sure all paperwork is filled out. Clean up your tools.
