"Serve them fast."
Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA):
Pros: I love being able to make a resident feel good with teeth brushed, their nails clipped, lotion to relieve dry skin, conversation about their families and histories.
Cons: The paperwork, whether on the computer or charted in binders is very time-consuming if done correctly. We are expected to work fast in order to keep on a schedule. As a part time worker I have not achieved the necessary speed or efficiency. I don't like seeing corners cut in terms of resident care in order to keep to a schedule.
February 2015
"Hard position."
Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA):
Hard position for a hospital. 12 hours on your feet with low pay. Very stressful at times to get all your work done. Ther are times when I have 15 patients to care for.
