Direct Support Specialist

June - July 2017 • Mantua, OH

What I liked

The patients are very sweet.

What I wish was different

This job was awful. They initially told me in the interview that I would primarily being doing paperwork, and there would only be a bit of hands-on experience. As someone who has had no training in the medical field, I was extremely overwhelmed. I witnessed other co-workers degrading patients either in front of them or other staff with no disciplinary actions. Although there are specific requirements in order to move patients, no one is willing to help. Even the nurses will not respond when you call them.

Advice

Honestly, I just wouldn't work there unless you have medical training. This is basically an STNA position without proper training, and without the proper pay.
