What is it like working as a Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) at Select Specialty Hospitals?
Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) in Wilmington:
"It's rewarding, I like meeting different patients."
Pros: Meeting new patients and working with a diverse group of them. I love helping them feel comfortable and card about, most of all putting a smile on their faces.
Cons: If I'm doing everything to help the patient and coworkers are slacking.
Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) in Saginaw:
"Taking Care of the Chronically Ill."
Pros: I like the length of time our patients stay. I feel like I get to make a larger impact on the quality of their care by spending more time with them and building more of a relationship. I enjoy most of my coworkers. I work with a lot of nurses who have a lot of experiences working in different facilities and they are more than willing to share their knowledge and teach when appropriate.
Cons: We seem to be frequently understaffed. We have a rancid reputation with our "host" hospital as well as with the hospitals in the surrounding area. Profit seems to be the only motivation for those working in management. Although I have not worked in other facilities, I feel our equipment is due for an upgrade. There is no consistency with rules and enforcement. I don't think we receive the respect or recognition we deserve from those in office positions. The list goes on...
