Complaints about me ALREADY! - page 2

So I just started my FIRST job as a CNA January 2 of this year. I am still fairly new. I thought I was doing pretty good for starting out, until I recently had some complaints! There was one girl... Read More

    [QUOTE=tammy_zeidan09;6183198] there is no way they can soak up a bed, through the bed pads, onto the linens in 45 minutes!
    Why not?

    what does putting 2 briefs on someone even accomplish?

    Everywhere I have worked, double briefing is a guaranteed write up if discovered! Just to forewarn you. The next shift is always going to complain. If it becomes a huge issue involving the next shift trying to get you in trouble, I'd ask the nurse to check your work before you leave - this way, you have a witness that things were done as they were supposed to.

    EDIT: Aaaaand I didn't read this 2nd page before I posted that, I see you already have that covered.

    And where I work, we don't have bed pads, they were gotten rid of 2 years we do a ton of bed strips. All of our residents are incontinent, as they are MRDD. Naturally, they're going to be incontinent...but we still have our fair share of people trying to blame everything on the previous shift, coupled with people who really DO leave the residents wet/dirty. It's frustrating, and if I work before certain people, I have the nurse check my rooms every night.

    Tammy I worked as a CNA for about six years, and the best way I found to get rid of this problem is to do a walk through with the CNA that will be taking over your patients after you leave.
    I really miss doing this! It's not possible at my facility now, because we have to be clocked out by 10:07, and 3rd shift never gets on the floor until that time. It made things go so much more smoothly and complaint-free for the most part.

    lol don't double brief...just do your rounds and make sure everyones clean when you leave. You will learn in time that all shifts complain about each other. am shift will complain about noc... pm's will complain about am's and noc will complain about pm's.. haha it will never ever end so just do your work and you'll be fine=]. make sure their chucks are where they're suppose to be at and yeah... it's really out of their place to text clocked out and you're off. just do your job and before you leave go to your nurse and be like everyone is changed, clean and good. Give like a report so it covers your butt you know?

    I can tell you that as a person with a disbability in a wheechair/incontinenet. I once had a nurse come in and change me and than change my IV, while she was getting the supplies for the IV out, I soaked the bed again. Literally on five minutes had passed. I guess my bladder must have been full while she was changing me and I didn't realize it. The nurse got so mad about it. I honestly try very hard to keep everything as dry as possible and even try ot change myself. I don't want to ever add more work to a nurses day, but there really isn't any control and it alwys seems to happen at the most inconvi ent times. You guys truly are angles to do what you od!
