A nursing home operates 24 hours a day. You can’t have a nursing home without nurses.
You can’t have and nursing home that provides compassionate care without nursing assistants.>>It’s like a puzzle each person’s got a special part and without that part and without that part’s
function the team can’t be effective has it should be.>>and you would think that just like if you
are on the outside where it’s you know you have a manager and then you have you know the people underneath, it doesn’t
feel like that here because we’re so interested in making sure that our residents are okay>>when you work in a nursing home you have to
always everyday go that extra mile with somebody. you just can’t say that, well I’m only going to do
so-and-so today. I’m tired, I don’t feel well I’m not for it today. It’s not gonna work.>>You got to be patient. You got to understand what the residents their needs.>>It takes something within somebody.
Everybody just can’t do it. Everybody can deal with what we deal with
every day.>>It make the staff feel nice when the family
said you know such-and-such unit take such a good care of
my loved one then it just bring my heart joy.>>It is hard when you start because it is something
new and you have to get to know all these people and you know what they’re used to or what they do like what they don’t like but
as long as you’re here for the right reason and as long as you are here not just to do a job, but you feel
something for doing for other people then it’ll get easier and it got a lot easier for me.
