Pros: pay scale, working environment, quality of care, bosses are great!
Cons: part time hours
I have never been employed by anyone who treated me with more respect. It is refreshing to be around such a positive, encouraging work environment.
A typical day at work (varies with the area I might be assigned to that day) includes checking on residents every 2 hrs, assisting with meals, showers, trash removal and general asistance in their apartments, – more... checking on other apartments with alarms go off, taking vitals, answering phone calls, dealing with residents families, inventory of personal possessions, assisting residents to hospital or doctor visits, transportation, changing briefs....any and all STNA required activities. There is a lot interaction with the residents...this is their home and it is my job to ensure their safety, along with their mental and emotional well being. It is a privilege and I cherish each opportunity. :) – less
