As a caregiver, I care for the needs of patients diagnosed with mental illnesses while consciously being sensitivity, understanding, caring, and culturally appropriate. I was trained to correctly administer medication at the appropriate date and time, as well as throughly update patient's daily logs. Updating daily logs allows for other caregiving staff to be aware if patients have been compliant with medication as well as their mood and behaviors. Daily logs are a crucial part of the job because it gives the counselor the most updated information needed for patient care since the previous visit. These type of patients tend to be irate, tense, and apprehensive; however, my training taught me to be alert, calm, and quick on my feet, which is important during these specific situation. Being around these patients can be an uncomfortable environment, however, my ability to be considerate, tolerant, and sensitive allows for premium patient care.
