Out of the total number of Personal Support Workers in Ontario, only a small fraction of them work in hospitals. However, their contribution is immense.
In today’s episode of the Personal Support Worker podcast we have Tanisha with us who is a Nurse and works in a hospital. She has been in the nursing profession for a number of years and has worked with many PSW’s.
I wanted to get a Nurse’s prospective on the Personal Support profession and see how much they value the contribution of PSW’s in acute care settings such as hospitals.
And it turns out to be immense.
Nurse’s in hospitals appreciate the help of Personal Support Workers and agree to the fact that the presence of PSW’s in the multidisciplinary team has often lead to higher patient satisfaction rates.
She also shares a very clever strategy for you to present yourself as the best candidate, as and when there is a job opening in a hospital setting.
More specifically, other things mentioned during the interview are:
- Personal Support Worker job duties in a hospital
- PSW’s working along with Nurses in order to achieve better patient satisfaction rates
- Various departments of the hospital where PSW’s work
- Tips on how you can increase your chances of getting hired for a PSW job in a hospital
