I have been a Certified Nursing Assistant since October of 2004. I have had the rewarding opportunity to care for many people with various conditions. Through my experiences, I have excelled in areas of patience, empathy, and communication. My caregiving skills include, but are not limited to; bathing, skin care, dressing, feeding, repositioning, ambulating, toileting, obtaining vital signs, transferring, preparing and serving food, medication reminders, oral hygiene, hospice care, and cleaning living spaces. I enjoy going above and beyond my expected responsibilities to ensure excellent care. I remain sensible and approach high pressure issues appropriately, according to urgency. I am results oriented. I think in terms of what else can be done efficiently, yet with a quality outcome. I take ownership of my job and hold myself accountable. I am flexible and willing to handle a variety of tasks in an organized manner. I am a compassionate person and I am always ready to help others in both my personal and professional life. I work well with all kinds of people and can adapt to their lifestyle and environment. ... more
