I worked for this company for almost a year. A typical day at work was ok. I would come to work, receive report from previous shift, and fill out a shift sheet, which was a sheet that told you what rooms you had, and it also had a place to write your vital signs, and a place to write any notes from report, or during your shift. You would then go and get vital signs for your group of people along with breakfast orders and dinner orders. After you had gotten your vital signs, you would show them to the nurse who would either ok them or ask you to redo them, then chart them in the computer. I learned that not everyone wants a job, but they want a paycheck. I also learned that not every where you go there is team work. Management was not so hot, and was poorly ran. Co workers overall where good. Most would help if you asked for help. The hardest part of the job was not having the correct amount of supplies or working supplies. The vital machines where always broken, the lifts were usually always dead, and there weren't many supplies to take care of your people. But the most enjoyable part of my job was coming to work to help different type of people.
Meeting different type of people, taking care of different type of people, friendships, and relationships with family members and their loved ones.
