Black ThingsJuly 2, 2011
When I had just started out working as a CNA, my first job was in a SNF and we had a patient on the first floor. He was a nice guy and one day he started to decline. The day before he died, we couldn’t get him to go to sleep for NOTHING so we asked him what was wrong, and all he kept saying was he was afraid because these black things were around his bed waiting for him. When they (the 3rd shift) discovered that he had passed late that night, they said his face had a look of terror on it. That still bothers me to this day.
