What is a CNA (Certified Nurse Aide)?
CNA’s assist Licensed and Registered nurses by obtaining vital signs, weight, observing patients for mental and physical changes, obtaining intake and output, obtaining specimens, documenting in patient’s medical record, and communicate accordingly with nurses and the entire health care team. Nurse Aides assist individuals with activities of daily living (ADL’s) such as, feeding, dressing, transferring, positioning, toileting, bathing, and mobility. Nurse Aides work in a variety of settings such as nursing homes, hospitals, adult day care centers, assisted living facilities, clinics, hospice, and home settings .CNA’s are there to provide safe and reliable care for those who need assistance or can not care for themselves. Nurse Aides are a vital member of the health care team. They spend the most time with the patient. Nurses rely on Nurse Aides to provide appropriate care, communicate changes in clients, to complete their daily assignments and be available to their assigned clients.
Most of all CNA’s Serve and protect the community of elders and individuals requiring assistance due to disease, motor vehicle accident, or other traumatic event. They do this by following facility policy & procedures, federal, state, and local regulations, as well as adhering to their own professional standards, work ethics, and integrity.
