I also work as a on-call CNA at a hospital and a nursing home. The hospital where I work is very close to my house so whenever they need me, I try to get in the spot.
Last night, I was with a restless gentle man. He kept saying head pain so bad. I kept comforting him,but he can not talk to me.
I just try to understand what he is trying to say.To keep comforting him through the night was so hard for me.
I touched his hands, head,and back.
Sometime he fell asleep putting his head on my laps. I gave him ear reflexology. He refused at first,but he could sleep. When another CNA tried to put him in bed, he fought back to her.
He wanted to be comfort.
I was so glad he could sleep well. A patient has own schedule when they take medicine. Sometime, they need to wait to get more. When they can not get med, reflexology works well.
Reflexology is not only on foot.
I feel like reiki energy is still working great.
I am so happy got him.
