I need some advice y'all. I just finished my clinical and kinda have a problem. We have a resident who is not able to feed herself, it happens. I was given the task of making sure she got fed properly. I think I did everything right but the cna's kept making fun of me for talking to this woman as I fed her. Now, she is mostly non-verbal but she was trying to answer and would at least give me a clear yes or no when I asked if she was ready for another bite. I got informed that all I had to do was shovel it in, she would eat. I was wasting my time with her when others needed help to. It really bothers me that they would treat anyone this way. Was I in the wrong talking to her, taking time with her? I understand we are busy individuals but isn't this what we are suppose to be doing? They made me feel like a freak for doing it the way I was taught.
