As my experience as a CNA, I am taking care of my patient's daily needs and personal duties such as bathing, dressing, feeding as well as brushing teeth and combing hair. I help residents in and out of bed often by lifting or using the Hoyer and Sara lift. I assist residents with walking as they travel to and from surgeries and treatments. I am also responsible for helping them get daily exercise, answer patient's calls for help, take their vital signs, blood sugars, monitor their behaviors and physical condition for progress or deterioration. Last but not the least, I sing to my patients and I was filmed on television on KRDO as' "The Singing Nurse," for not only in the Oncology Unit but for the Memorial Hospital which they call now University of Colorado Health.
