There are a few CNA’s that work here that are so rude to the residents. I know of one because the resident complains about her all the time to me. How she yells at the resident and makes her feel like a child. That is not cool. This resident is always telling me, “You’re so kind to me.” And she always asks if I’m going to put her to bed. She is such a sweet lady I don’t know how anyone could be rude to her. I don’t understand how anyone can be rude to people, period. If someone was rude to me like I know she is to residents I would tell her to fuck off. One of the residents already did that. I was cheering for the resident while it happened. (inside my head of course)
One big problem I have with this place, and most assisted living places, is that the CNA’s become the servers. To me that’s gross. I wouldn’t want someone to be changing a brief then a minute later serving my food. Yeah sure we wear gloves and wash our hands, but it’s still gross. At least in my mind. They also have a hard time telling the difference between who is CNA and who is server. Yeah I’m a server in the dining room but I’m also going to be the one to help you if you need it. So many of them call me waitress and it’s kind of annoying.
I do enjoy working with most of my co workers. There are a few that I want to stab, but on a whole I enjoy them. I love working with Brant even after his crazy Christian rant. He’s a fun guy to be around and we work well together. Val is also a really sweet nice lady. That girl has a voice on her! I couldn’t believe the voice she belted for me and Darko one night. My jaw dropped.
I’m glad I have a job and I know that other places are just like ours. I really like my residents and I think that’s the most important part.
