Health Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 29 November 2017
Good team to work within but obviously this varies from ward to ward hospital to hospital. 12 hour shifts days and nights. Rewarding but challenging job. Anti-social hours is hardest part of the job. Great job if you enjoy always being busy with things to do.
When a resident has a behaviour and hurts a member of staff it is always Staffs fault. When a member of staff have been hurt more than once they are put with them on there own again the next day even thow staff are quite worried. When you try to say I'm.abit worried to be working alone you are told then quit your job by management. Or if refuse to work with a certain person you will be sacked etc. When staff have done nothing to cause the resident to hurt them it's there fault. You don't get breaks and when you try to eat on a 12.5 hours shift your told by management seniors to get out the kitchen so most days you go whole day without eating or drinking. And then for night staff there is alot put onto night staff and day staff have no respect for night staff they will say leave that cleaning or that washing for night staff they can do it. Management is more concerned about residents amd not at all about staff welfare. And for the work you do and the job all in all pay is absolutely pathetic.
