Hi to everyone! I’m Anya, 33. I live in Netania, Israel. I work as a nurse at a psycho ward. I’m also a mother of two children.
In my report I’d like to show you one of my usual working days. So, welcome in the 4th of February, 2012, Saturday when I worked. I had the 2nd shift that day.
I got up at 8.10 on hearing my son crying. The picture above shows the things I saw having opened my eyes. You can see my husband and me in the poster.
My son Tim.
My daughter Alice and my sleeping husband.
My daughter asks me to read a book, and I do it with pleasure.
Our sitting-room. It’ll be clean for, maybe, an hour and then…
Then I wash my children and start our washing machine.
and our breakfast.
It’s time to go for a walk.
We’re going to the sea shore as usual.
Heading to Argaman Beach. It is in 10 minutes from our house. On our way we see these beautiful flowers. I can’t help shooting them.
The beach. It’s sunny but the wind is cold.
Water is very cold too but…
… there is a someone brave enough to swim there.
Tim suddenly falls asleep.
Half an hour later.
It’s time to go home, I’ll have to leave for work soon.
1.30. We’re home. I take a shower, change my clothes and leave at about 2.
2.30. I’m at work and in the photos below you’ll see my hospital territory.
All buildings are not tall.
This is my ward.
You won’t see patients or staff in my photos. It’s medical secrecy.
This is my working place, nurse’s station. I spent the biggest part of my working time here. By the way, the clock you see stopped a week ago.
Our medical treatment room.
A patient room. They are usually for three persons here.
There is a bathroom in each of ‘em.
A room for assaultive patients. We seldom use it. Most our patients come to the ward of their own will.
Place for smoking.
I prepare them for the patients. It usually takes me about 40 minutes.
4 pm. I’m at the computer eating a banana.
It’s time to measure patients’ blood pressure.
Our work therapy room where our patients and we do applique work.
Canteen for our patients.
6 pm. It’s dinner time for our patients.
When they are through with having dinner, we can start.
Table for the staff.
While we’re eating our patients’re watching TV in this room.
At 8 pm, after supper, I give medicines to my patients and start writing reports. At 10.45 pm I go home.
I’m home at 11.15 pm. My children sleep. I talk to my husband for a short while, have some tea and go to bed.
Thanks for being with us.
