I took my CNA exam on Monday...and I am driving myself crazy! Here's my question: I had providing mouth care for an unconscious resident. After the test, I looked in my manual to see if I had done everything right and noticed that a CRITICAL step was to put on disposable gloves and then turn the resident to their side, facing you, and place a towel and kidney basin under their mouth.
Well, I turned the person and placed the towel and kidney basin, THEN put my gloves on. Am I going to fail for this? I am going insane!!!
I didn't do any actual mouth care without gloves.
I'm in Kentucky, if that helps. We can do an entire bed bath without gloves, up until peri care...but am I going to fail for just turning a person with no gloves!
