Productive and fun workplace
Assistant in Nursing (Former Employee) – Darwin, NT – 3 February 2015
My shift starts at 6 pm. At first I get handover from the RN. Then I take clothes of patients from washing machine fold them and keep on the drawer of patients. Then I refill the stock like pads, toilet paper plastic bags. At 7 am, I start to help patients for toileting, oral hygiene, showering etc. At 7:30 we start to serve breakfast and help for feeding. I go for my first break between 8 am to 9 am. Morning tea is served at 9 am. After finishing morning tea, I help for the rest of toileting and showering. Around at 10 am, we take patients downstairs for fresh air and extra activities and bring back at 11:30 when Lunch starts. I serve lunch and feed some of the patients.
I learnt about a new patient who is suffering from huntington's disease.
I need to manage time efficiently as I need to look after 6 patients co-ordinating with RN.
The hardest part of the job is the challenging behaviour of some of the patients.
The most enjoyable part of the job is to see some of the patients making improvements and our team work.
