Therapy Aide, Oswego, NY - January 4, 2016
~Working with Oswego Health was somewhat productive; performing general duties under a shift supervisor which is always a Registered Nurse. Job duties normally rotate from day to day, from watching Constant Observations, holding groups and activities for clients and from cleaning tables and rooms for clients to come.
~I've learned a lot from working where I have worked, set of skills you couldn't obtain in a class-room or online; working with Oswego Health indefinitely improved my communication skills, both verbally and written.
~ Depending on where you work in Oswego Health, my management was spread too thin. Sometimes, management would be right on top of issues in a timely manner and others it would take inhumanly impossible to complete. Some issues would be addressed and nothing would ever happen or change at times, and then sudden everything changes. There would be times where we would be short-staffed and management would expect us to work short with a high acuity floor, at times. Other than those issues, management was OK.
~ My co-workers were the best! It definitely made working where I worked a lot better! Most of my co-workers were prompt, efficient, friendly, caring and sometimes extremely funny to work with.
~ The hardest part of the job would probably be that the staff are spread thin, running short-staffed to start the shift, then having to watch Constant Observations, and performing all shift duties. There would be times where you would have only one or two free staff members to manage the floor.
~ The most enjoyable part of the job is that I was caring for individuals on a daily basis.
