What Does an Orderly Do?


 
Career

If you're looking to work in the medical field, but you haven't attended medical school, then working as an orderly may be the job you're searching for. You will be able to work hands-on with patients and assist in their care, which can provide you with valuable knowledge and experience if you were to go on and become a doctor or nurse. If you would like to learn more about what an orderly does, then read this article or search for Saint Marys jobs.

Regular Patient Care

Orderlies' duties can vary depending on the scope of care that the hospital offers, as well as what area of the hospital they are employed in. However, one primary duty that orderlies have is to provide patients with regular, daily care. This can include tasks like changing out bed pans or giving sponge baths to long-term patients who are bed ridden.

Setting Up Equipment

Orderlies may also be tasked with setting up complex medical equipment, like bed traction arrays. This is usually taught through on-the-job training, and if you wish to continue on in the medical field, this will give you some great knowledge and experience in working with and setting up hospital equipment.

Assisting Physicians

Depending on the ward that the orderly is in, they may also act as an assistant to nurses and physicians. This will include tasks like helping to restrain combative patients and assisting in the application of casts and other such treatments. Other tasks may arise depending on the situation.

It's important to remember that, as an orderly, your job will be to offer assistance wherever it is needed, and you may be called upon to participate in unexpected tasks that vary from your normal routine. You must always be prepared to render aid when it is required.

Transporting Patients

Orderlies also often assist in the transportation of patients throughout the hospital. Not only will this include transporting patients from one room to another, or from their room into surgery, but it can also include transporting patients into the hospital from the ambulance bay, or even from life-flight helicopters.

In these latter situations, you will be working in an urgent, high-stress environment. Every second will count, and it is vital that you are able to listen to instructions and follow them promptly. Your ability to get the patient to the proper area in the hospital in a timely manner can make the difference between life and death.

Preparation for Surgery

A final task that orderlies are often given is to prepare patients for surgery. This often includes shaving and cleaning the area that will be operated upon. At times like these, orderlies often find themselves offering comfort to anxious patients who have some fears about the surgery they are about to undergo. You should have a good bedside manner and be able to help calm frayed or rattled nerves while still being able to complete the tasks you are given.

Some of the tasks orderlies handle are often seen as menial. However, orderlies are a vital part of the hospital's staff, and they give important aid in patient care. If you choose to become an orderly, there may be times that you feel under-appreciated for the work that you do. At these times, it's important to remember that you are indeed helping to save lives.

If you would like to learn more about what an orderly does, consider looking up Saint Marys jobs to see if they have any positions available. Even if they don't, you can take the time to ask them questions about what the job entails so that you can decide if it is something you would like to do.
