I pass medications to the residents. If they are running low on a medication, I reorder them. If the medication has 0 refills, I fill out the form and fax it to the doctor. When medications come in from the pharmacy, I check that they match the resident's current medication in the EHR, and verify that they came in. When a resident seems to have a change in condition, I assess the situation and make the decision on whether I need to send them to the hospital or not. I obtain vital signs on the residents that need their BP monitored. I also step in when one of my fellow staff members are unable to provide care to a resident and assist them with the care. I train new staff members that are hired. I make the necessary changes in a resident's care plan if it needs updating. I ensure that they are getting the care they need and deserve.

Hello everyone my name is Kaneisha. I'm a very outgoing person, bubbly and love to meet new people. What makes me a a great caregiver is that I have compassion and empathy. I could always make someone feel very comfortable that's one of my specialties. As a child I always stepped up and helped my mother with my younger sister. Knowing that a little help could go a long way when someone is in need attracted me to continue to be a caregiver. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is meeting new people, learning about them, and giving them the satisfaction that I am there to help them. I love that I am and furthering my career on being a better caregiver.

I became a caregiver at 15/16. My entire family works in the healthcare field. I'm a very kind and hard driving person. My grandmother and grandfather both passing in the same year is what drove me to become a caregiver. My achievement right now is going to school to become an lpn. What I enjoy most about being a caregiver is learning new things and being able to learn about my residents pasts.
