A certified medication aide (CMA) is responsible for administering medication to patients in a medical setting. They work closely with health professionals and patients to administer and document medication intake, writing reports and documenting customer interactions. Often, CMAs must also assist patients in using the restroom and performing other personal hygiene tasks. In addition to physical support, a CMA must be willing to provide emotional support for patients and interact with the patient's family.
