Beware

Supervisors will bait employees with large sums of money just to advance themselves without any consideration for their fellow laborer’s welfare.

Regardless, there are people who will do anything for money.

About two months ago now, there was a text message that went out at a place of work for caregivers.

I didn’t believe my eyes when I saw the text advertise four-hundred dollars a day for a Caregiver case.

The message didn’t sound right to me. For all the years I worked in health care I never saw a case offered for four-hundred dollars a day.

I contemplated on the text, rationalizing what could be up. The only explanation I quickly came up with was the case had to be a Covid-19 positive client.

A while later, another text was sent out acknowledging that the case in need was indeed for someone who was Covid-19 positive.

The agency did not initially mention that vital information. They began to take loads of virus infected people, informing caregivers of PPE gear located at the homes of these clients for them to utilize.

No employee was obligated to accept any of the Covid-19 cases against their will. It was a free choice to any caregiver who worked for the agency.

One employee told me a supervisor sent her along with another coworker on a case at a hospital yet didn’t inform them ahead of time that the patient/client was positive for Covid-19.

I understand these people who have the virus need medical attention and have to be treated but it is the supervisor’s responsibility to inform their laborers in this particular life-threatening situation.

People have to be extra careful and look out for themselves because when money is involved unscrupulous professionals as well as ordinary individuals will generally put one at risk within a heartbeat.


Essential Worker: Essentially Protected During Pandemic/The Vital Power Of Spirit

When I entered into the area of health care professionally six and a half years ago a long-term dedication within the field was never my intention. Health care wasn’t a passion of mine and it still isn’t.

As a caregiver, I knew that I’d always have a job and never be out of work for any long period of time, and I was correct. So, it was a great back up gig and I am excellent at what I can do. After all, I do have over twenty years of total experience aside from having learned certain medical procedures through being trained and certified/licensed for the six years in which I have.

Health Care is an important occupation when one is responsible for the personal welfare of an ill or dependent individual who needs specific care or attention.

I’ve done and dealt with practically most all kind of patients/clients with all types of requirements. I’ve had to administer medication, take blood pressure, prepare and change ostomy bags, monitor blood sugar and insulin injections, care for hospice, cancer, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s/dementia, stroke, blind, deaf, amputated, psychiatric and etc.…. The list just goes on. I’ve worked in hospitals, assisted living facilities, and within residential homes.

I’ve even had to travel out of my way at times but the experience was good and I had received good worthwhile pay.

Fortunately, I haven’t had to be out there within the health care field now during this Corona Virus episode, even though I was ready willing and able to work for the main reason of earning the income that I am use to making, regardless of the pandemic.

This virus doesn’t scare me, yet the universe doesn’t want me out there constantly within that particular environment for my overall well-being. It’s like one not permitting their beloved child to go walk through a fire even if they wouldn’t possibly get burned. The universe doesn’t even want me feeling the heat or inhaling smoke-even though I can handle the flames, and I honor and respect the “power of spirit” with much regard and appreciation.
