I was thinking of applying to become a part-time Patient Safety Aide at a hospital near me and I was wondering about what exactly they do because the job description was very vague. I think this'll be a great opportunity to get my foot in the door and just see what it's like in a hospital environment, especially as a nursing student. Any thoughts are appreciated!

Also, I live in NJ so does anyone know how much they get paid/hour? The shift is 11p-7a, part-time.

Thanks!

I would think that means you would be a one on one safety attendant, or a sitter. Usually in a hospital setting it would be for an overdose or suicide precautions. You just sit there watching them to make sure they don't hurt themselves. Sometimes it's easy, sometimes it's horrible.
