THERE ARE COMMON CHARACTERISTICS OF PEOPLE IN HEALTH CARE AND NURSING
Nurses, nurse’s aids, or workers in medical offices or in any part of the health care system must have a sympathetic and compassionate attitude towards the elderly, the sick, and the disabled, and those who are in pain. People in health care need professional and practical knowledge to carry out the many tasks associated with the care of patients:
- Good Communication skills – You need to have good oral and written communication skills because you must be able to explain the treatments that have been ordered for patients in a way that offers encouragement and promotes co-operation. You also must be able to correctly record vital signs and other patient information crucial to their care.
- Attention to Detail – You must be a careful worker in every way, from knowing how to move patients safely to carrying out instructions and making accurate reports.
- Physical and Emotional Strength – Not only must you have the physical strength to move patients, push their wheelchairs and beds and wash and bathe them, you have to be able to stand on your feet for many hours. You also need the maturity to clean up after accidents and to carry bedpans. As well, you will need the emotional strength to deal with the death of patients that you come know and love.
