Rebekah Bagwell, NA II
Nursing Assistant, Orthopedics Unit
Happy with Pardee since 2017
Where are you from?
Why did you choose to work in health care?
My childhood dream was to become a nurse because I have a passion for caring for others.
What does a typical workday look like for you?
A typical workday for me includes checking patient vital signs, blood glucose checks, and assisting with personal hygiene. I have the opportunity to help RNs, PAs, doctors, fellow CNAs and therapists provide care for our patients. I also get to encourage my patients to ambulate and participate in physical therapy. I can also provide ice packs, heating pads and position changes to help with pain management.
What do you enjoy most about working at Pardee?
I enjoy working with our wonderful team on Ortho! Our team works hard and together to provide the best possible care for our patients.
What is a surprising fact about yourself?
I recently got engaged to the love of my life, while watching our favorite NFL team win! The LA Rams beat the Carolina Panthers!
