Provide optimal quality of care
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – August 10, 2014
A typical day at St. Anne's are assisting with ADL's such as grooming, bathing and feeding. Collaborating with nursing staff about patient status and reporting any changes. I also make sure the environment is homelike and safe. I help assist safe patient transfers with appropriate devices, record intake and output and make sure call light is within reach. I work effectively in a timely manner making sure documentation is accurately documented into the ECS charting system. What I've learned is that each patient has different needs and that it is important to prioritize what should be done first. It is also important to use therapeutic communication to improve the quality of care. I have excellent nursing staff who I work effectively with and supervisors who in which we collaborate with about changes and updates within the nursing home. The hardest part of my job is developing a close relationship with the patients. It is hard to separate those feelings because I am with them each and everyday. The most enjoyable part of my job is the therapeutic relationship I have with my patients and feeling appreciated by the patient and nursing staff.
