Health Aide, Private Homes - July 23, 2017
A typical day at work involves switching a shift with your relief, ensuring your patient takes all of their medications, and ensuring all the patient's needs are met. I learned how to provide Home Hospice service to private customers. With a new management switch, came new problems such as working with other jobs health aides may have, days off, or availability. Also, there was a couple of instances of two aides showing up for a shift because it was scheduled incorrectly. I personally had all my hours given away one week because another health aide returned, and she wanted those hours. The person in charge of the Health Aides is very unprofessional and has used taunting and offensive language towards Health Aides. The hardest part of the job would have to be the hours. You could get off of a eight hour graveyard shift, and have the next person call in or not show up and you would have to stay until they find someone(the inconsistency).
