My typical day at my job consists of either working on the floor as a C.N.A., as an R.N.A, Dialysis Tech or helping out the staffing coordinator. As a C.N.A., I take patients vital signs, I shower or bathe my patients. I get patients dressed to get up out of bed with a Hoyer lift to and from the wheelchair or walker with a gait belt. The patients get up for all meals, therapy, appointments or activities. I also give patients oral care, nail care, and companionship. Throughout my shift, I also chart electronically each patients Activity of Daily Living. At the end of my shift, I do walking rounds with the oncoming C.N.A. and give them a full report of each patient. I have learned how to take care of patients with foley catheters, wounds, tracheostomies, ventilators, gastrointestinal tubes, T.P.N.'s, dialysis, PICC lines, I.V.'s, colostomy bags, isolation, amputated limbs,parapalegic, quads, total dependent or limited assistance. Management is amazing at my current job. They communicate on a day to day basis, with all 350 staff. We have many different departments at my job, that consist of housekeeping, respiratory therapist, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, nursing, activities, RNA, on-site dialysis, an outside hospice service that comes in, social services, dietitian, business office and medical records. The workplace culture we live by our mission each and every day. The hardest part of my job is when patients pass away. The most enjoyable part of my job is when the patients smile and say thank you, for helping them out throughout their day.
