During CNA Week, we celebrate the exceptional work of Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) who bring compassion and dedication to their roles. Today, we shine the spotlight on Lydia, a valued member of our team at American Medical Staffing. Lydia’s heartfelt words perfectly capture the essence of a CNA’s profound impact on patients’ lives.
Since joining AMS in June 2021, Lydia has been a dedicated CNA, serving in various healthcare settings. From working as a sitter at GBMC to providing crucial support during COVID-19 swabbing in Baltimore Schools, Lydia’s versatility and commitment shine through in her exceptional care.
Lydia’s Perspective on Being a CNA:
“Sitting is amazing – the flexibility and the connection with your patients take the job to another level! Besides supervising safety and the compassionate care that needs to be provided, I always find myself going above and beyond, especially with the younger patients who mostly need emotional support. When the trust is installed, they open up to you and share the struggles that they are going through. As a mother, I always want to extend the care, build that relationship, which at the end of the day makes me feel like I accomplished something and I brought a smile to my patient’s face.”
The Impact of Connection and Compassion:
Lydia’s heartfelt words resonate with the core values of CNAs. Her dedication goes beyond physical assistance, as she understands the significance of emotional support in patient care. Lydia’s genuine connection with her patients creates a safe space for them to share their challenges, fostering a deeper sense of trust and healing.
Celebrating the Profound Work of CNAs:
Lydia’s journey exemplifies the incredible contributions made by CNAs every day. They are the compassionate souls who bring comfort, support, and smiles to those in need. Their commitment to building relationships and making a positive impact sets CNAs apart as exceptional caregivers.
