I worked in a nursing home for about 4 years. I took care of different kind of patients. That was in the 70's then I want to mount Carmel in 1977 -1978. I worked on a medical surgical floor for about a year.I left when I was 7 months pregnant. I retuned to mount Carmel west in April of 1980. I was on mother infant taking care of mom and babies. I've been on that unit for 36 years. Sometimes I would sit with a patient who tries to kill there self or confused etc.
