Typical day at work:
Assist with activities of daily living.
What i learned?
I learned a lot in medicine.
The whole staff is amazing.
My PSW coworkers all have the passion for helping others, most of them are Registered Nurses from other countries
As a PSW, you are working with other health care professionals as a team, make sure to communicate with everyone on patient care, so you are ready for each and every shift.
Hardest part of the job are inconsistent hours, day, evening, night, weekdays, weekends, and the transportation can be an issue.
Most enjoyable part of the job?
Getting to privilege to work in the hospitals
As far as salary, they are paying standard salary like other companies, it's not the company, but the wage gap in the health care system, not the company. Health care system (hospitals, workers, medical supplies, etc) have limited funds, as a result, this reflects the wages.
If you care about the money, then go for a home based PSW job. If you care about the hospital experience, then I highly recommend CareCor Inc as your choice to join because of their hospital affiliation, their amazing staffing office, and caring management, who meets once a year to listen to our concerns, to make improvements in the company.
Hospital Affiliation, experience, almost guaranteed job placement
Various shifts (D/E/N), Hours (0-48hrs week), Days (Sun-Sat), Locations (wide range to travel)
