  PT Jobs Arizona Finding Success in Aromatherapy
Those with PT jobs Arizona at one local hospital are providing a new service to patients.

Banner Estrella Medical Center recently began offering patients the option of undergoing aromatherapy during their stay at the hospital. A group of physicians provided funding to train those with RN jobs Phoenix (Click here) how to administer aromatherapy after realizing how successful this type of program can be.

So far, the program has been extremely successful, with more than 200 patients requesting the therapy during a 30-day trial period. That success has led the hospital to consider expanding the program to other areas in the hospital.

"We have surgeons who request aromatherapy for patients before and after surgery," Linda Voyles, a nursing educator for Banner Estrella, told The Arizona Republic. "It's used on cancer patients, heart patients and in the ICU. We are now looking into using aromatherapy in labor and delivery, as well as in the emergency department waiting area."

During aromatherapy treatment, nurses use essential oils to provide relief from anxiety, pain, sleep deprivation, and stress, among other symptoms. A variety of scents are known to cause a soothing effect, such as lavender for calming or peppermint for cooling.

"Aromatherapy is effective in alleviating many discomforts, such as anxiety, as well as minor aches and pains," said Keron Bowen, director of complementary therapies for Banner Estrella, said. "We are using the therapy to support traditional Western medicine. We are seeing very positive results."

Nurses generally use a blend of five oils that are applied during a hand or foot massage or placed on a cotton ball for patients to breathe in. They take great caution to make sure the aromatherapy treatment won't interfere with any allergies or other health problems the patient may have.

Banner Estrella Medical Center is a nonprofit hospital that supports many nursing jobs in Arizona and is part of Banner Health, which supports many employees throughout the greater Phoenix area, including those with Peoria jobs (Click here). The 214-bed facility offers emergency services, a full cardiac program, general surgery, medical imaging services, orthopedics, and services for women and infants.
