Not a family friendly place to work
Patient Care Associate (Current Employee) – Kalamazoo, Michigan – May 12, 2015
I like my job, but the company itself isn't very nice to work for. They have taken away our fringe benefits, they don't take into consideration family emergency situations, They don't offer yearly raises, they under staff which makes it hard to preform good patient care. I have learned patience and good customer relations. I preform vital signs, safety checks, keeping a good milieu on the unit, and activities of daily living. I offer advice, and interact diligently with my patients. I love taking care of my patients, and trying to help them through a hard time in their life gives me great satisfaction. The hardest part of my job is trying to deal with angry, upset, violent patients. I feel management isn't really interested in our well being. We get criticized for all the things we might do wrong but never any gratification for going above and beyond our work duties.
