Dear Ms. Pollock,
I am applying for the position of Occupational Therapy Assistant with Belmont Pines Hospital.
I have completed an associate degree and acquired the Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant credential. I have gained the skills and training to provide physical therapy sessions to patients that are suffering from a work related injury.
I have excellent communication skills with the ability to understand and follow the specific instructions given by the therapists for each patient to ensure they get the best possible care. I have the ability to give patients their medications, monitor the medical supplies and to place orders when the medications begin to run low.
I am familiar with reading and filing out patient charts and I have the ability to keep the therapist updated on the progress of each patient. I have the skills to keep excellent records of all sessions and to document how the patients are responding to the treatment prescribed by the therapist.
I can build a relationship with patients that will help me to know when to push them during their therapy sessions and when to hold back, so they do not push harder than they should be resulting in a setback. I have the compassion to understand that this is a difficult time for these patients and the ability to be understanding when they become emotional. My pleasant and outgoing personality helps to create an environment where patients can feel at ease and concentrate on improving their condition.
You can reach me for an interview by calling (555)-555-5555 and I hope to meet with you soon.
