Assistant nursing - Start my shift with handover - Vital signs - Feeding residents - Patients' ADL - Assisting and Transferring residents to dinning room ( as requested). - Documentation Registered Nurse - Check residents' vital signs - Patients' medication - Following up residents' care plan with doctors. - Documentation. I have learnt a lot when I was working with Columbia Aged Care. I have built my clinical skills and personal skills such as strong communication, time-management, and proficient documentation. Columbia Aged Care has a multicultural environment as residents and staffs coming from different backgrounds; therefore, I have learnt how to respect people from different background and how to treat people in appropriate ways regarding culture safety. I have found the hardest part of the job is managing your time to adjust your performance and authorise the task in order to deliver the best care to residents and ensure patient center care. I enjoyed most of the time when I was working in Columbia Aged Care, even though there are difficulties sometimes. I enjoyed spending time with residents and listen to their stories (some residents shared about their lives when they were young, lessons they learnt in the past, etc )
Pros
supportive and friendly staffs and residents

Management is a bit lax. They take their time to rectify situations. They don't really listen to their workers. The people I work with and the residents are great.

A small company compared to leading aged care providers and there's not much room for growth. Everyday is a busy day. My role is not only limited to reconciliations of bank accounts, general ledger accounts but also assets management.
Pros
Good communication
Cons
No growth opportunities
