Job duties included checking vital signs to ensure patient stability, changing briefs on patients, bathing patients, feeding patients, clothing patients, answer call bells, and other duties as assigned. Staff would communicate to Head Nurse to check on status of patients before the start of shift. Help transfer patients and assist other employees with transfers from bed to chair or other types of transfers, lifting more than 100 pounds per patient, reposition patient, and chart all of the patients’ behaviors. Driving to the nursing home which I would be working at for the day. Working with diverse staff each day which makes me a flexible, fast learner. It would have been great to get reimbursed for mileage or have more available shifts. They lost contracts and didn't have enough hours for all of their staff I would work only 8-16 hours a week when I was use to 30-36 hours a week.
could take breaks whenever
long drives, paid for own gas, not enough hours, benefits weren't great
