The caregiver must possess some basic traits to excel in this field of endeavor, which mainly requires good patient care and communication skills in order to understand effectively the patient’s needs. Knowledge of first aid including administering of CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation), observance of hygiene and of course proper hospital procedures is necessary.
You can achieve all of these through proper training; however, one of the most important traits of a caregiver that is more inherent than attained is the trait of maturity and responsibility. This also encompasses friendly and helpful disposition towards the patient, relatives and colleagues within the institution.
