I worked with the Veterans hospital for 7 years as a nursing assistant on the medical/surgical floor. I assisted patients with toiletry, self-care, personal hygiene, and other ambulatory services as needed. I performed vital signs, daily intake and output routine, treatment care such as wound care, colostomy care, open and close wound care, g-tube peg care, tracheotomy care, and monitoring 02 readings. Read and perform orders and documentation of treatment of each patients. Assist with feedings and oral care as needed. Did pre-op and post-op care on patients going into surgery. I have 7 years experience in hospital setting. I also worked as an independent caregiver both live-in, one for my father and the other for a first stage dementia female elder. I assisted with medication, glucose checks, meal preparation, feeding if necessary, and toiletry. I gave showers and range of motion exercises on regular basis. Reorienting client as necessary throughout the day and monitor frequent check at night. Assisted with transfers and other mechanical assisted lifts when necessary. Read to the client and be a companion and a comfort to the client. I have always enjoyed helping others and I have a passion to use that ability to give services to the elder and those with adversity. I am currently going to college to for my Associate's degree in social work, so I can give back to my community and society. I also went to a vocational school for nursing assistant and have vast knowledge on how to care for patients and clients that need the care. Overall, we are all going to need assistance in our lifetime and I want to do my part while I still can offer the help where ever it is needed. I have faced adversity in my life and I have overcome them and now have a valued life learning from my past experience. My compassion for others has always been a part of me. I have a lot of experience in this area and I hope to use this to progress in my career to help the elder and society in need.
