Warning this book may prevent you from making an unsafe career choice Everyone wants to make sure that the career chosen is profitable and manageable. I suggest in this book to look at any and every career except a caregiver or certified nurse assistant. It appears that this is a career where individuals will gamble with their personal health and well being in order to care for someone else. The risks are huge If you get injured you will likely be put out to pasture within five years. If you are lucky working in nursing homes, residential care facilities and hospitals will last up to five years. Injuries on the job can take you out of commission on the first day. Please read this short book that describes what I have personally learned about the various health care organizations where caregivers suffer the most. The book describes the do's and don't surrounding the various environments that caregivers may work. This book is a testimonial on the scenarios that I have witnessed. The names of individual businesses and professionals have been kept confidential. The activities that occur within walls of these institutions is described to inform the new comers of what could potentially occur. I am currently not working as a certified nurse assistant after eight years of service. There are too many risks that could include permanent and total disability. What makes it worse is that the workers are not adequately protected. Staffing is low, pay is minimal and risk of injury are extremely high. Unions, lawyers and workers compensation laws are weak. Recovery is questionable if you get hurt and then how do you support yourself and family? The book contents include: Training, Where Are The Jobs, Patients Rights to Religion, Activities, Skills, Hazards, Personal Expenses, Scenario of CNA, At the End of the Day and CNA/Rights-Patient Rights.
