High stress and fast paced working environment.
Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – March 21, 2018
Day shift and night shift are fast paced and make you feel overworked, there are too many things that must get done on time before your shift is over. I have learned a lot working here at one of their many hospitals, I have grown more as a CNA than anywhere else that I have worked. Management is okay, they are not the best management that I have ever worked under but they still do fine. The hardest part of the job is definitely time management. When you have days where you are in charge of 12-14 patients and you must perform Vital Signs on every patient every four hours, you must keep an eye on the time and make sure you get all of your work done in a timely manner. Another hard part of the job is being a part of a "Code Blue" where someone is found unresponsive with no heart rate and no respiratory rate. You must know your role and perform it correctly and you also have to be okay with death, dying, and post mortem cares. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping a patient get better, stay comfortable, and see them go home at the end of their stay. That is the most rewarding part.
PTO and some 401k match.
Must clock out for lunch break, don't get two 15 minute paid breaks.
