- Recording observations and vitals like temperature, pulse and respiration rates.
- Administering medicines, injections and vaccinations.
- Writing reports and patient records.
- Setting up drips and blood transfusions.
- Assisting with tests and patient evaluations.
- Maintaining strict hygiene and safety rules.
- Managing more than one ward.
