I just started my clinicals for CNA this week and I can't believe how exhausted I am today. I got assigned to the skilled nursing unit and I loved it, however, it was a lot of work! What really got me is that it seemed that everyone on that unit has diarrhea. I can't count how many briefs I changed and how much pericare I did today. Wow! :trout:
For someone who has a C Diff infection, does the color of their diarrhea change also? I'm not sure but I think I may have seen my first C Diff case today.
All I can say is that I will not forget that smell and the color of the stool.
Hats off to those of you who have made being a CNA your carreer. Bless you because I don't have any desire to do this long term. :angel2:
