CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant, Salisbury, MD - May 31, 2016
I worked PRMC for years. The floor I started on was racist (night shift) and worked me hard.The night shift nurses were no help.They just sat and ate and talked.The travelers and float nurses were the easiest to get along with and would help me.Sometimes I struggled with patients by myself, not to bother the nurses so they would not make a smart comment. I could have reported them a number of times, but i didn't. Once we went to our new floor, things got better. After begging and begging, I finally got some help.It seemed to me that all management was concerned about was having enough nurses on the floor, didn't care about the assistants. I felt like walking out a many of times, but I needed the job.I learned a lot at PRMC and I do appreciate that. Dealing with different people and different cultures gave me a whole new outlook on life and myself.I learned a lot of nursing skills. My patients were my main concern.The hardest part of the job was dealing with death, which i soon overcame.The most enjoyable parts were making the patients feel better and after moving to the new floor, chatting with the nurses( new ones) and my co-workers.Management never came around unless they had got a rumor that something was going to happen(strike) lot of co-workers did not even know who administration was, for they never saw them.On and on it was great experience that I will always remember.
