Everyday is difefrent from the other, quiet and busy.
Patience, and confidence
Management is is very challenging
Co-workers are very supportive occassionally slack when burnt out
The hardest part of the job-when working night shift taking care of 30 residents with a ratio of 2 staff, and 4 people do not sleep at night and display aggressive behaviour, very challenging to stay awake when exausted.
When all duty of care has been successfully delivered, all tasks completed and its time to go home!!
on a busy day, even a short shift can be a long day.
