HCAs Make a Difference

We asked HCAs about their work and what makes being an HCA rewarding.

Hearing from you showed how important the role of an HCA is to the healthcare team.

Meet Shojiro Yamamoto from Edmonton!

Shojiro loves both music and his patients at the University of Alberta Hospital, Stollery Hospital: PICU.

“I love being an HCA because…providing patient care and talking to their family is important.”

“The best part of my job is…saving critical patients lives and providing comfort to them.”

“I love working with patients and families because…my passion is providing the best patient care possible!”

“I signed up to the Alberta HCA Directory because…I graduated and studied hard to obtain the knowledge and skills for my patients.”

“What I like most about the Alberta HCA Directory is…ensuring that we are following the competencies as professional and as HCAs.”

“My favourite superhero is…one of our patients, he stayed us more than a year and he is gradually recovering from his sickness!”

“When I’m not at work I like to…practise the violin and French Horn for patient care; I would like to play music for my patients. I also play with and walk my two dogs.”
