HEALTH CARE ASSISTANT - JOB DESCRIPTION
As a Health Care Assistant, you will be required to undertake such duties as would normally be expected of a competent Health Care Assistant when caring for patients/service users in a hospital, care home, private home, prison, industry or other appropriate setting. Duties will include all aspects of personal care and assisting with all the activities associated with daily living.
Duties may be from 1 hour to 24 hours duration, including day and night work. You will be required to provide transport to and from your place of work. You must not transport clients in your own vehicle unless and until you have completed the necessary Everycare ‘Driver, Vehicle & Insurance Status’ form.

You will not be required to, and must not, undertake any tasks that should only be undertaken by a trained nurse. Particular attention is drawn to the Policy ‘Medication – Procedure for Administering and Handling’ in the Staff Handbook.
On each visit to your patients/service user’s you will be required to keep accurate and legible records of patient care, treatment and progress, either in full compliance with the requirements of the establishment where you are working, or in the case of domiciliary care, in full compliance with the record keeping system stipulated by Everycare.
