Pros: accomodate school schedule
Cons: in-service demands
Typical day at work includes a daily morning report which provides information about the patients I am responsible for on a daily basis. Early morning routine also includes patient care, and completing activities of daily living. I aid patients in bathing, dressing, and eating when needed. Other responsabilities include charting, filling out accountability paperwork, making phone calls and interacting with families, patients, and other healthcare professionals.It is a friendly, professional environment and for the most part enjoyable. All of my co-workers are a pleasure to work with and we all seem to work well in teams. The hardest part of my job is encountering death and being a part of the death and bereavement process. It sometimes, causes myself and others to become depressed and or anxious.However, I do enjoy being part of someone's path to recovery and I greatly enjoy helping people.
