Very fast paced place to work.
CNA/Caregiver (Former Employee) – MI – April 19, 2017
Stressful environment working with ill and elderly patients...lot's of responsibility, hard to manage workers in those conditions. Lots of overtime. Great staff, hard workers. Met a lot of great residents, too. Very caring loving facility...just very busy and pressured.I learned a lot about treatments, meds, dealing with behavioral issues and how to handle grief. Met a lot of nice families there to. They provided a lot of activities and entertainment for residents too. Learned a lot about safety and took other jobs in housekeeping, kitchen and laundry too.A typical day was do have a brief meeting on what rooms and residents you were responsible for and anything new going on with them or any problems that needed to be addressed...busy non-stop days.Did physical therapy, helped residents with meals, dressing, bathing, grooming and kept rooms clean and safe. Also did a lot of transferring for non ambulatory residents.
working with and for people.
