Saratoga Hospital

Patient Care Assistant

May 2019 • Saratoga Springs, NY

What I liked

I liked that this was the equivalent of a LNA or CNA, but without the costly, ~6 week long training period.

What I wish was different

Nothing! It’s a great first time patient care job.

Advice

If you want to get into patient care, this is a great way to start. One of the most important things you need to learn is how to simply interact with patients, and as a PCA (or LNA) you spend more time with the patient than anyone else on the Healthcare team. It’s a lot of hard and dirty work, but it pays off.
