What is your job title?
I am a nurse in the operating room. I work in the interventional cardiology rooms where we perform, for example, coronary angiography, angioplasty...
My first position was in Cardiomedicine and Critical Care. One day I had the opportunity to participate in the opening of the first coronary angiography room in a private facility and I was very interested. Coronary angiography is a field that moves a lot. So I have always had the chance to work with doctors who have always been very involved and have allowed me to stay abreast of new practices.
At which Ramsay site do you work?
Hôpital privé Dijon-Bourgogne, France
For how long have you worked at Ramsay Santé?
I started at the Fontaine Clinic in 2001. When the Sainte-Marthe, Chenôve and Fontaine clinics, the former clinics of the Dijon agglomeration, were reunited to form the Hôpital privé Dijon-Bourgogne, it was a real challenge. We had to move all the equipment and merge the teams. This continuation of the adventure, a sort of continuity in the history of the clinic, has been very successful.
What is your favourite thing about being a nurse?
You might think that practicing a single specialty could be routine. Well, not at all! Each patient comes with his or her own unique history and pathology. That's what makes daily life rich and varied. Rapidly evolving medicine also makes it possible to learn new methods and practices on a daily basis. I continue to learn while sharing experiences. This is very enriching and important in my opinion!
What are your aspirations for the future?
I am currently completing a training program in rhythmology that will allow me to acquire new skills and participate in complex interventions. For the rest, I consider that as long as I continue to learn things in my work, without the shadow of a routine, then I have no real interest in changing my daily routine. From a relational point of view with the team, I am also very happy with my situation.
