recently got hired in a sub-acute facility!!
- 0Sep 29, '12 by fc89I have been working in a skilled nursing facilty for the past 8 almost 9 months and recently got hired to work in a sub-acute facility. I'm so excited to start working there but I don't know what to expect as for the type of work I will be doing. If anyone that works as a CNA in sub acute, please let me know the type of work you do there. It would be of great help!! Can't wait to embark in this new journey

I guess by sub acute you mean a rehab facility. If it is in a nursing home there may be less of the foleys and trachs as I see in the hospital.
I do love motivating people to be more independent. That is my favorite part!
