My students and I are currently at a hospital where I’m teaching them as they do their long-term Home Care stage. The staff is amazing and they are a nice team. The students each have a few patients and they help the staff tremendously.
The students’ day begins as follows:
- they wake up the patients, position them and prepare them for their breakfast;
- they distribute their trays, feed some of the patients, give some patients a bath or a bed bath;
- transfer the patients with the lift using the right technique;
- answer the call bells.
The students are truly enjoying this stage and are doing an amazing job, which is very much appreciated by the staff. I have received numerous good comments about our students.
