CNA's running Ambulatory Care Clinics

  1. Could someone assist me with an issue. I have noted that our supervisor is having CNA's responsible for clinics. Mind you these CNA's were unfortunate left overs from the floor when the inpatient floor was moved to another location. I am very concerned about scope of practice for CNA's. Does anyone have anything that I could review on that issue?? I am also VERY CONCERNED that our patients leave here with poor knowledge, education on disease process, medications etc. Another concern is the RN being liable to these and all patients. People are being thrown into an arena as bodies not as needed caregivers for the patients. I welcome comments and am attempting to resolve this issue.
