i am not sayin havin an education is a bad thing what i am sayin is that they need to be better trained and educated for the world they are bout to help and thus said companies should allow for the unexpected as if i wasnt there for my friend i bet anyone thier pay that that hca person that was there to supposedly help my friend would have bolted and left my friend as she was ,,,,,,,,,,,,there are too many stories out there like this and wonder how one came up with the thing where having education means less abuse,,,,,,,,,,,truth be told i have seen the later happen as result

bayshore is a company that only takes those with the HCA certificate here due to laws and such that say those with a piece of paper are less likely to abuse clients then those without irony is i have seen the later as i have had several friends with chronic issues suffer abuses and lack of care from those with HCA background then that of those who have lack the education but have extensive knowledge due to personal history (my mom has had ms since i was 15) and can run circles round most HCA trained kids that lack life skills,compassion and humility. I have been called on many occasions where a friend with hoyer life had an HCA that knew nothing bout lifts let lone transfers and luckly she knew me as i know my lifts and transfers. oh heres one for the books a few years back a hca staff outa some company where i live had run out of time ans had to get to next client and thus my friends hell began..................my friend needed help as my friend was having loose bm issues along with mobility issues due to ms and an hca who barely knew her stuff.........so i come flyin to the rescue and takes charge..........i take one look heres my friend covered in dirty towels covered in fecal matter and barely hangin on in the chair and covered head to foot in her own waist and an hca that was ill equipped and just standin there like an idiot and i told her to watch and learn and stay out of my way............then while i was barkin commands she just stood there starin at her watch and sayin i have to go and i bark agnerly fine go thus leavin me with my friend when my friend needed her so luckly for me i knew my shit and did a control slide from chair to floor and onto a dry clean towel and pillow under her head and i proceed to clean up my friend get the hoyer and re-position my friend on her bed and get her dressed and ready for the day. after gettin my friend done i proceed to look round and the crappy trail the hca staff left for me to clean and the mess went from bedroom to bathroom. so in light of all this makes me wonder how prepared an hca person is if they cant even do a trancefer from the floor using a hoyer or track lift or better yet figure out ways to use common things like a sheet,towel or blanket to pull someone out of a room and use the sling and hoyer and track lift to do trancefer in a safer more open place if room person was in is too small for hoyer or unsafe to trancefer. thing is it seems to me cridical thinking is passay thus makes me wonder peoples training as one has to think not everything is an emergencey thus should beable to think of ways to do things as one ambulance for that person equiles 200 dollars out of thier pocket that equils things like rent food bills ect and most dont see the reality that most those have very limited income as in less then 1800 per/mo. in my view it seems pepole have stopped thinkin about others and thus only think bout themselves thus they arent there for the person but rather the money............call me ol school but sometimes i have to shake my head and wonder..........about some people and how they got by in thier schooling and they say they are skilled ,educated hca people.............sure they maybe educated but are they prepaired for the world as most people with health or mental issues dont go by the book and thus the unexpected will happen and friends like me are far and few

please if you like what i share with you share it lol and get my name out there !!!!!!!!!!! the biggest wish i could ever have is having a secure safe work environment where the employer sees my potential , my worth and utilizes my curious nature threw means of in house coerces and hands on learning techniques in the area of CSW and understands (or at least tries to) my needs and is willing to accommodate those needs threw means of my pdd funding,autism networks/resources and allows me to grow with in the company thus allowing me to help advocate,educate and help people in the community as front line in house staff working in a one to one environment helping those with high function needs with simple life skills and getting out in the community.
