  1. Today, I hate my job

    The take away the shower team every now and then and bring them back a couple months later. This time was because a resident went months without her infected toe being reported by the shower team, so she had to get part of her foot removed. One of m...
  2. CNA's taking over lpn's?

    We're nurse assistants, not nurses. Can you imagine doing CNA work AND nursing work at the same time on a hall? Nooooooo. Never. I would quit and go into computers.
  3. Today, I hate my job

    I've been working at a LTC for 6 months, and the past 2 months have been miserable. I work on the total-care hall that has two residents in every room, and half the time get a decent partner (when the hall needs to have 3 aids). From the moment I wal...
  4. CNA Hours

    The nursing home I work at does 6-2, 2-10, 10-6. I worked 10-6 first for 6 months, then 2-10 for 6 months, and now i'm on 6-2. The morning shift is definitely my favorite, it goes by soo fast and I have so much time after work. Also, I try to get atl...
  5. Might be getting fired tomorrow

    Good news, I didn't get fired! Just a 2 weeks suspension, whew.
  6. Might be getting fired tomorrow

    I'm a 22 year old male whose been a CNA for a little over a year. I've been at my current nursing home facility for 4 months now and I love it so much I want to continue working there after I get my LVN. I know every resident backwards and forwards a...
  7. I'm a CNA and will be starting (hopefully) LVN school this fall, but last weekend one of our agency RN's came for the holidays and I started asking her about her job and stuff. She is a 60 year old woman who has been in the business for decades, and ...
  8. Hi all, I had a nursing home job in Dallas for a year I started when I got certified, and the last 6 months of it I switched to prn to work around my school schedule better. About a month ago though I moved to college station, 200 miles away, to live...
  9. My first LTC/CNA job and I love it, despite the low pay, my relationship with the coworkers and residents are what keeps me staying to gather some experience. However in less than a month cooperate comes in saying since not everyone is taking 45 minu...
  10. Surprised during my clinicals

    You'll get over that fairly quickly. If everything was done by the book, you would absolutely positively never finish your work on time. As long as you're practicing good hygiene and you're keeping the resident safe, you're doing the job right.
  11. Alzeimers Facilities pay more?

    I'm a new CNA working for a month now at LTC night shift for $9 an hour, no shift differentials, and i'm friends with a coworker who has been working there for 3 years and she told me they still have her on the same salary as when she started, which ...
  12. I've been having allot of wrist pains recently since I started working in a nursing home. It flares up whenever I move a heavy resident up in bed (most of the time I HAVE to do it myself, my coworkers hate helping out) and also when I hold I heavy re...
  13. By explosion I mean every resident on all of our halls (minus a few) are having diarrhea, MASSIVE. I'm talking you lift the sheets up and there is a pool of stool inbetween their legs. I obviously have a strong stomach to this stuff, otherwise I wou...
  14. I just started my first nursing home job (rehab) and so far the night shift is very easy, the staff and nurses really like me and commend how I care for the residents and that I go in and talk to them before every shift instead of sitting down watchi...
  15. My first nursing home job!

    I went to my interview earlier today, the ADON is VERY nice, very laid back and I was really blown away she chose me out of the 61 apps on her desk, she said "I usually wait for someone to call about their app, then go by how I feel about them on the...
