    Experience & Education

    Caregiver/Med Aide

    Dec 2015 - Jun 2016
    FirCrest Community Living
    I cared for memory care patients in a large facility. I was trained to transfer patients from wheelchairs, recliners, beds, showers, etc. I bathed, fed, and groomed residents. I monitored patients and reported any changes in conditions or vital signs. I administered medications to all residents. I was delegated to take CBG results and give insulin shots. I followed written and/or oral instructions to administer medications and document dosages and times. I was trained to keep a schedule and time management to make sure patients vitals were taken on time, as well as medications administered on time. I was trained to proficiently read medication administration records. I learned interpersonal skills as you have to be very sensitive and compassionate with these residents. I was trained on wound care and I am CPR certified.
