    I understand that. Somedays I'm like if you call me one more time....and having two aides assigned happens a lot. I realize there's a lot of people to care for but what does the office do all day?...

    That's exactly why I'm worried about. It has escalated even since July. I don't want to be around for it to get much worse

  5. Maybe this is just a vent post....Home Health
    There are 3 other aides, 2 are as fed up as I am and the other I dk. I don't think so. The notes are too ridiculous and detailed for someone who isn't there all the time. The other aide only works...

  9. Stress of being an LTC aide CNA just too great for the pay!
    That's why I quit LTC and went to home health. It's not fair to the aides or residents to have one person caring for all those people at once. And for all the aides that are more experienced than you...

    Tell yourself that you know what you are doing. You know your stuff. You are good at it. Act like it's a normal day at work. You will be fine. :)

    And also again, as far as schedules go, LTC is 5:30-1:30, 1:30-9:30, 9:30-5:30. Strict. But home health is more 7-5 (not straught!!) broken up. Of course there are overnight clients you may be...

  12. hospital vs home health vs LTC
    And also I was making $9.00 per hour in LTC (which is not fair for the amount of work you do) but in home health the aides start out at that or more, at least. Hospital start out around 10 I think...

    LTC is the hardest job you may ever have. Sweating, litteraly- dripping all day. Never getting everything done. Rudeeee aides who won't help you when you need it. 8 hours straight of changing briefs,...

  23. Can I get some advice from seasoned CNA's?
    I'm going to be 18 next month, so I am young, admittedly. There is a LTC facility here where I can take a 3 week CNA course. The problem is, LTC facilities scare me to death. I feel so, so bad for...
