Nursing Student Looking For Home Health Care
I have recently been accepted into SUNY Ulster's nursing program and will be starting in the fall of this year. I am currently employed as a Patient Care Assistant (or nurses aid) at Columbia Memorial Hospital in Hudson. I have worked there for three years and have worked in the Intensive Care Unit, Med-surge, Telemetry, Emergency Department, and the Psych floors. Most of my patients are elderly and I assist them in anyway they need me too. I shave, bathe, brush teeth and dentures, feed, turn and position, assist in walks to the bathroom or transfers to the chair along with anything else my patients require help with. Working with the elderly is very special and important to me. They have cared for people all their lives and now its their turn to have someone help care for them. I am very passionate about what I do and am looking forward to being able to spend more time with and get to know someone I can help and give back to.
I am BLS certified, have my flu shot, PPD, and all of my immunizations are up do date. To work at the hospital and being a nursing student I am required to have all of these current and up to date with NY state policies.
