In 2001-2006 I worked at Central Baptist Hospital in Lexington KY. Within 8 months I was chosen to train all new and current Unit Clerks that was a big achievement for me considering some employees had be employed with the hospital for 10yrs. I love helping people I've always had a big heart. It makes me feel good to know just something little, I've done has helped another person in their day. I do have a lot of patience because when people are not able to do the things they once could do or their memory isn't the same. It's natural to be frustrated and I don't let that frustration bother me, you have to have a lot of patience and calmness.
