Guess which medical worker works for free ?

Guess which medical worker works for free ? : "I'm thinking of a particular type of medical worker. See if you can guess.

* Average wage? Zero.
* Benefits? Zip.
* Medical insurance? None.
* Social Security? Not covered.
* Time off? Hardly any-most offer services 24/7, 365 days a year.
* Training? Nonexistent. Job candidates must learn everything on their own.
* Skills required? Healthcare administration, clinical care (specialization required), a full range of nursing skills, and the ability to deal with a patient's complex emotional needs.
* Duties? From high-level research and complex medical management to bathing, providing personal care, and emptying bedpans. Must be willing to do paperwork while patient sleeps.

Give up?

Family caregivers of those with debilitating, chronic illnesses are the most numerous-and overlooked-health workers of all."
