A typical day for me as an Dietary Aide usually starts either from the shifts of 5:30am-2, 6am-2:30, 11:15-7:45. I usually would clock in and set my unit that I am assigned to for the day, once I am done with that I will get on the phone and start taking the food orders of the patient. What i have learned from this job has to do with dealing with the different diets that the different patients are on. what they can and cant have and why. Management does try and make an effort to make the company and the employees feel like they do have a voice within this company. The co-workers are great very nice and helpful, they really do welcome you into the job. The hardest part of the job, can sometimes dealing with rude patients or really sick patients that take out their anger out on you, but we are trained to know how to handle situations like that so it does get easier. The most enjoyable part of my job, is when I have made a patients day by basically doing my job and getting noticed for it, knowing I made a difference in someone's life or day is what makes the job so rewarding.
