Because I like it.

Renaissance Behavioral Health

Why did you choose this type of work? How would you handle an upset patient that may try to hit you? How do you feel about being on your feet all day except for required breaks?

1 Answers

I chose this type of work because I love people. I also have a mentally ill family member and I feel I can give back to my community to the less fortunate. I have very much compassion for people. I feel that if a patient tried to hit me most of the times there are signs of a patient escalating and showing respect and kindness most of the time will help to calm a person down. I am very active and I do not like to sit for long periods of time. I would like to think I would be spending most of my time helping the patients and making sure they are safe at all times. Less
