Long Term Care:
Long-Term Caregivers like Certified Nursing Aides (CNAs) and Certified Medication Assistants (CMA) help with their patients daily needs, monitoring their health, and ensuring they are as comfortable as can be. They see the patient’s improvements and setbacks. They develop great relationships with the patients they care for. Other Long-Term Caregivers, such as Directors of Nursing and Administrators, play a very important role in the healthcare domain. Developing training programs and operations, budgeting, monitoring expenses, and overseeing shift changes are just a few out of the dozens of responsibilities they take on in order for the nursing department to succeed.

Home Healthcare Workers’ responsibilities are pretty similar to those as LPNs, CNAs, and RNs in facilities only they provide care at the patient’s homes. Some work with patients on a long-term, full-time basis, while others can have multiple patients each day. They coordinate a plan with the patient, their family, and their physician in order to establish the treatment needed to ensure they receive the best care. These tending professionals give patients the comfort of being able to heal in their own home, and not having to worry about staying in a hospital.

Yes, there are traveling opportunities for Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, and Speech Pathologists, too! Physical and Occupational Therapists as well as Assistants help patients with injuries, prepare for pre-op procedures, help post-op patients regain their range of motion, and overall help improve their everyday life. Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs), on the other hand, are responsible for helping people communicate properly. They work with those who experience voice disorders, are unable to speak or understand language, and even those who have difficulty swallowing. Not only do they help with communication, but they also play a big part in helping monitor and diagnose those with autism. All these therapists may come in different forms, but their end goal is all the same; to help people improve their quality of life.

The Radiology field, in some ways, is like being an investigator. A big part of the job is to look for clues, describe the results, and determine the findings (diagnosis). They can help verify if a patient is internally injured, has cancer, is pregnant, or has other types of health conditions. Their job is very crucial in the healthcare sphere, and they can help determine past, present, and even future conditions.
Radiation Therapists and Nuclear Medicine Techs use medicine and technology to eliminate or damage cancer cells and tumors. Basically, they are the Terminators of cancer. Not only is their job to destroy any existing cancerous cells, but to prevent them from spreading as well.

These “behind-the-scenes” professionals are relatively similar to the radiology crew where their job is to find any evidence of abnormalities in tests. When the Phlebotomist collects your blood sample and takes it back to the lab, a Medical Technologist, Lab Assistant, Cytotechnologist or other type of lab professional looks to detect any possible diseases. These findings assist doctors in providing a diagnosis or ruling out any existing conditions.

They can work with those suffering with asthma, undeveloped lungs, bronchitis, COPD, and heart disease. Unfortunately, heart disease continues to increase, but there is hope that with more treatment and studies, those rates will one day go down.
