I think Hilo Medical Center is going for most complete orientation for their travelers. Three days of non unit orientation. Well, one full day and two half days. Today I leaned how to use feeding pumps, wound vacuumes, pca, IV pump, point of care testing (my blood sugar after lunch was 105 not sure if I should be worried about that :0( ), facility tour, and packets of information to read on my own time. Everyone was very nice including the L&D manager. I was still missing the correct Pyxis test (instead of just saying I needed to take the Pyxis certification test they said the Pyxis 4000 thank you for telling me exactly what I needed to do so that I could do it). After work we sat in the McDonald’s parking lot and took the Pyxis 4000 test and got the additional certification. Few. This is the culinary offerings of the McDonald’s in Hilo, now we have not tried them yet, but I thought you all might enjoy seeing the advertisements.
While I was at work Chad worked on getting everything sent to Joseph at Travel Tax who specializes in traveled allied health taxes. We are kind of scared to see how taxes go with having to file state taxes in four different states. They also visited Rainbow falls.
They just looked from the view point, they are waiting for me to really get out and check it out.
