Oleg Teleten, R.N., B.S.N., W.C.C. (CNIII Patient Care Resources)
I am working on the skin wound assessment - treatment (SWA-T) team as a wound consultation nurse. This has offered me the opportunity to focus on quality improvement projects in preventing pressure ulcer and suspected deep tissue injuries in the perioperative area.
I love my job because it is a highly specialized nursing area where I can use my skills and knowledge to assist nurses and physicians in choosing best practices to treat wounds and in preventing pressure ulcers. This creates a rewarding environment as I can witness improved outcomes in our hospital patient population.
This institution is associated with The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis of which I am a member of the founding class of Masters in Nursing. I have had the opportunity to work many of my school projects into my work here, in both quality improvement and presentation skills.
I am afforded the tools and encouragement daily to perform my job to the best of my ability and I feel all the nurses are providing the best care daily. The wound care multidisciplinary team provides a great opportunity to learn best practices from others and share knowledge with staff from every unit in the hospital. I am proud to be a nurse at UC Davis Medical Center as I know that UC Davis strives to provide the best and safest nursing care.
