I have been working in the nursing field for 11 years. I received my certification in 2008 by the state of Pennsylvania to be a certified nursing assistant. My duties were providing daily needs for patients. Showering, bathing, brushing teeth and dentures; dressing patients and/or queuing for daily ADL's. Transferring patients, toileting, and light house work as well as light cooking. Making beds, filling water pitchers with fresh water and ice. Keep open lines of communication with staff and family members and knowledge of computer skills with documentation.
In 2017 I had completed full classes for Dementia training and received my Certificate in Training.
This was my first time working for Hospice. It was all a new experience for me with working in facilities as such. I traveled from patient homes to patients in facilities. Communication was the key with staff as well as with family members. My responsibilities were to make sure my patients were safe and satisfied. I created a professional bond with my patients to make them feel comfortable with daily routines. Bathing, dressing, toileting, mouth care, feeding, making beds and changing bed sheets, transferring, showering, companionship, ADL'S, light house work, light cooking, sitting with patients when approaching their last breath. My responsibilities were to also make sure my patients had what they needed before I left. This job really has opened my mind up to wanting to further my education with nursing. I enjoyed working for hospice. Something I've learned is a must and that is you must have patience with people when taking care of them and meeting their needs daily. I enjoyed helping and making a difference in someone's life.
My daily duties were to report to the nurse's station to get reports. I received my assignment for the day. Showering, toileting, sponge bathing, transferring, bed changes as well as making beds daily, filling water pitchers as well as fresh water daily, grooming, mouth care, feeding and assisting to set up residents that could manage on their own with meals, cleaning out bedside drawers and closets to keep everything neat and safe, companionship, I believe that I adjust well with schedule change, and with helping on different floors. I have received my Certification and full training at Pocopson. Coordination well with change and patience with others is key to a successful day. I worked on the dementia unit from the time i started working for Pocopson. It truly was a great experience to learn and grow with staff and residents.
I enjoyed working for Bayada. I worked with the same client from the time Ii started till the time I left. I grew with the family. It made my day to know I could be there to help out and meet any of the family's needs. Transferring, changing, communication, charting, making sure the clients safety needs were met as well as the families. Working for Bayada was a different experience because I had the opportunity to work outside of geriatrics.
