P3: describe the potential effects of discriminatory practices on those who use the health and social care service.
In my time volunteering at the hospital, I hope to gain many different experiences. However, there are a few main ones: adaptation through enrichment and dependability. First of all, I want to get to know and adapt to the environment of the hospital and learn how different processes work. This is a crucial part of being in the atmosphere of a clinic. Also, the experiences that I will have at the hospital will help me to understand the routines and entailments of the career I would like to pursue. I hope to become a Physician’s Assistant in the future and this will be the best way to know if it is the right position for me. This enrichment of my understanding will help guide my passion for this career path and hopefully strengthen it.
In order for me to be competitive for this career I must gain extensive experience in this field. I know that my grades and most of my skills allow me to qualify for this position but that doesn’t matter in most cases. In order for me to stand out I know that I must get more involved in a hospital care setting. I have only been volunteering in a hospital for six months now and I feel that more years of experience will allow me to enhance my knowledge. I as well plan on joining the club called HASA for networking and making more connection and using them in my work
Caring for the same patients’ each week and can be exhausting at times. I want to care for a variety of patients each day. I need a change and I want to enhance my knowledge. Most people say, starting on a Med-Surg floor will give me a lot of experience. Although that may be true, I am glad I had the opportunity to work on this unit for 240 hours, but I need a change.
I have had opportunities to learn about many diseases from all body systems. I also had opportunities to take care of different kinds of wounds for patients.

Significant experiences I gained from working on this unit were time and task management and nursing skills. Currently, I work at Winter Park Memorial Hospital, part of Florida Hospital Group. Although it is the multi-system PCU similar to my first unit, the population of patients are different. Majority of patients are geriatric patients with a higher acuity level and more complex comorbidities. I found that I enjoy working with these geriatric patients and taking care of them as they are part of my family.
I am working in the Emergency department of the Mary Washington Hospital. Mostly I work on the front desk. My duties include, greet patients and visitors, sign-up patients, forward their paper works to the registration department, and take patients to their assigned rooms.

I organize the patients sign up forms and sometimes I clean the beds, change sheets and pillow covers for patients’ rooms. I answer phone calls and receive food deliveries for the staff. The skills I hope to learn are patients’ services, how to deal patients when they are in trouble, remain be patient in critical situations
