    Default Patient Care Assistant Job and interview tips needed

    Hi,
    I have a interview coming up for a job as a Patient Care Assistant in a hospital.
    I have never been employed as one before, nor had any real health industry experience. Any help would be appreciated.
    I haven't had a interview in years as I have been a SAHM. I get nervous when talking, and I like to be prepared for any questions I might be asked.
    Does anyone have any tips?
    TIA

    What does a patient care assistant do? Is this different to an assistant in nursing?

    I'm in NSW maybe it's called something else in other states?

    Well if its similar...

    Questions could involve:
    What would you do if an RN asked you to give the pt a panadol (I wouldn't do it I am not able to give panadol, it's not my role etc)
    Why do you want the position
    Describe a situation where you delivered personal care to a patient
    Describe a situation involving confrontation
    Words to describe yourself
    What would you do with a confused pt

    Do you mean personal care assistant? PCA is the same as an AIN. Can't remember what my interview was like.
