LINGUISTICS & CULTURE

It would not surprise me to learn that different hospitals have different names for these wonderful people. Years ago I was in a hospital in Los Angeles that called an \"auxiliar de enfermagem\" an
attendant or nursing attendant, but I\'m sure that I\'ve also heard the term nurse\'s aide. They were poorly paid and not treated well, but they certainly took good care of me.
In other fields an \"auxiliar\" is often called a helper. Again, the term can vary from place to place, job to job. Plumber\'s helper, carpenter\'s helper, etc. The helper of a truck driver is often called a swamper. The name is an old one that comes from the days of horses and wagons.
