Never a dull moment-- co workers were amazing!
CNA (Former Employee) – Beaver Falls, PA – April 14, 2013
On an average day at providence care center there would be 4 cna's on my floor with a steady LPN and the charge nurse floating around the building. I would have anywhere between 10-13 residents a night most were totals meaning I had to do everything for them. I learned how to be very patient working in this field. I love the elderly people I get to take care of because one day I will be their age and I treat them all how I would want to be treated. I also learned how to build my character while working in the nursing field if you want respect you have to give it out. I know now because of nursing that communication is key if you have no communication with your residents or your co workers your basically goin to fail at every attempt you make towards taking good care of your residents. Thoroughness is very important too and to me that is most important because how you leave your job is a reflection of yourself. I couldnt even imagin not cleaning my resident all the way or only covering them half way wit a blanket, or forgetting to lower the bed. It jus goes to show how much you truly care for people when you do your job the right way. My most enjoyable moments at work are when me and my residents are smiling laughin, and getting to know each other more. To me that is the icing on the cake to know that I could help somebody feel alil better at the end of our day.
enjoyable co-workers, close to my home.
short breaks, the business office does not get to know their employees on a postive basis, understaffed, schedule mistakes.
