"I record vital information in the patient’s chart, so the anesthesiologist knows which drugs to give them and how much to give them."

I Like to Make Patients Laugh

During the pre-surgical evaluation, I record the patient’s blood pressure, temperature, height and weight, along with any medications they’re taking and any drug allergies. This is all vital information that goes into the patient’s chart, so the anesthesiologist knows which drugs to give them and how much to give them.

The chart goes everywhere with the patient, so members of the health care team can quickly see what they need to know about the patient’s medical history. We’re all part of the team, and working together is essential in making sure everything goes smoothly for the patient.

When I’m taking a patient down to surgery, I can usually tell if they’re nervous just by their facial expressions. If I can get them to laugh or crack a smile, I feel like I’ve done another important part of my job.

Whether it’s a patient, a surgeon, or a co-worker, knowing I’m needed by somebody is the best part of my job.

It’s people like Jim, his upbeat attitude and his concern for patients that you’ll find inside MidMichigan Medical Center – Gratiot - people with skills and compassion.
