First Day of Clinical
Last night was my first day of clinical. I was so nervous because I didn't know what to expect what is going to happen. There were four of us assigned to do clinicals at Larchwood Inns a nursing home facility. When we came in to the breakroom to find out who will be our preceptor (a CNA that we will work with). Then I found out that I will be assigned in the dining hall where the residents are waiting for their dinner. I sat beside the resident who was paralyzed from shoulder down and had to feed her coz she couldn't move her arms or hands. It went good because she was nice. The only thing that bothered me was that I have a hard time understanding everytime she talks to me since her language was also affected. But I am glad that the CNA's in the facility were very nice everytime I ask for their help. The rest of the night went all good taking care of the residents putting them to bed.
