Resident Care Aide (Former Employee) – Schenectady, NY – September 12, 2017
Each day you interacted with the residents. The residents become like your family. I learned to pass medications and different medical terminology. This facility was ran very well and all the residents were always very happy.
The cleanest nicest facility I have ever worked at in my 19 years as a nurse.
Night supervisor (Former Employee) – Niskayuna < N.Y. – August 15, 2013
A typical day starts with narcotic count and then report. Then I take the report and fill out the resident census every night. Then check with my employees make sure everyone is okay and has what they need for the shift. Then I go up prepare for the 6:00 am med pass. At 12 am I do my rounds go back to the office finish up the resident checklist and prepare the paperwork for any resident going out to a doctors appointment. Refill any medications that are needed on the medication cart. Then at 2:00 am I fold the laundry if there is any and then I walk the entire building to make sure everything is going smoothly. Then I take my lunch break. At 4:00 am I do my rounds again. Then at 5:30 I start passing medicationss. I also take care of any prn medications on my unit and attend to any falls or medical emergencies that might pop up during the shift through out the building. I finish my shift report and then I collect my employees reports so that at 7:00 am I can give report to the Resident Care Director and the day staff. Sometimes it is the administrator if the RCD is coming in late or has the day off.
