Not For The Timid.
This job is not for the timid. We frequently deal with combative patients. Many of these patients are infected with Hep C or HIV. These patients will not hesitate to spit, throw things or strike. You have to be mentally prepared for these attacks and little or no support from medical staff. You will frequently have medical staff try to pawn their job off on you and then try to report you for “not doing your job” when you don’t cooperate. Please understand that this is extremely common and shows no sign of changing.
Pros: Every body has a chance to do the job and we are like a family.
Cons: Unable to further my study due to straight day shift.
