Produtive a fun work place
Cook Meals, Clean (Current Employee) – Carterville, IL – November 15, 2013
Once I get Clocked in I check on my Clients make sure they are all Dry an see if they needed to use the restroom. then I pass the 4p.m. Meds. to 8 clients and if I didn't have to pass them I do a double check to make sure the staff before me had past all the Meds. out and make sure the staff had signed the MAR in the right spots an the correct time. Then I will start supper, and do Vitals to all 8 Clients on every Monday. I chop up the food for the Clients that don't have teeth an even for the few that do had teeth. Bathe the Clients and at 8p.m. I pass their Meds. out to them and then get them ready for bed. I check on them as they sleep cause one Client has seizures. then I take them potty every 2 hrs. I make their lunches for them cause through the week they go to workshop. Then before I leave I do the books. They have Goals they do. Which all Staff has to do Documentation after every shift. We do Monthly Drills too.
I learned how important it is to take care of 8 Mentally Handicap residents. As in checking their Vitals, Taking their Meds daily, Bathing them, taking them to Doctor appointments.
When the next Staff or Co-worker comes in I relay to them how the day or evening went an let them know if there was any problems with any Clients. I let them know if there was any clothes or towels left to be put up or folded.
The hardest part of the job? Nothing is really to hard as long as you are paying attention to your Clients.
I have Fun with my Clients. We play music an sing and dance with them. I try to make it fun when I am working with them.
I am getting to Help people that can't really take care of themself. I enjoy helping others!
