Volunteering at a Physical Rehabilitation Center (HEALTHSOUTH)
For the next three weeks, I will be volunteering monday-friday from 9am-4pm at HealthSouth Physical Rehabilitation Center in Northern Virginia. As a volunteer, my job is to help out the nurses, organize and rewrite patient's schedules and data, learn more about a patient's needs during their stay, and much more! For three weeks, I will be accomplishing 100 hours of volunteer service hours and at the same time will be learning how a nurse/doctor/staff member really does their job at the physical rehabilitation center. So far on my first day, I have learned so much about safety health information, diseases, case managing, nursing, and so much more. Throughout my journey as a volunteer at HealthSouth, I hope to accomplish and learn more about the medical facilities and to just help out the ones in need by respecting and assisting them in every and any way possible.
