Certified Nurse Assistant/Home Health Attendant
I have been a CNA for for two years, and I love the opportunities that it presents. I have experience working in nursing homes, as well as in hospitals; my first official employed position was at a hospital.
I am very comfortable performing every care aspect outlined in the job description: I can bathe or assist someone in bathing, including providing bed baths or actual showers. My experience as a power lifter has granted me the ability to easily lift heavy objects, and so ambulating (walking), or alternating a patient's position while they are in bed is a simple task. I can also help or perform any other aspect of daily living, including: feeding, shaving, nail care, oral hygiene, and hair care.
Although the majority of what I do is to provide health care, I also feel that it is important to be interactive with the patient; when all of their needs are taken care of, I really enjoy getting to sit and talk with my patient, learning about them, and giving them an opportunity to express themselves and be social.
