Please don't be offended, CNA's. This particular CNA, who I am hopeful does NOT represent the majority of CNA's around here, insists on dispensing the patient's meds at times other than indicated by the prescribing physician. She goes through the patient's wallet (it's a home health care situation), enters checks in pt's registry, tells pt "I love you," and drives his (luxury) car home when she doesn't have a ride (which is pretty much every night).
When I asked this CNA a second time time to NOT leave pt alone in the bathroom at 1 AM (explaining his ataxia, orthostatic hypotension, etc.) she screamed "don't tell me how to do my job!"
I am not a RN (yet) so not really savvy about these things. The patient I described is my father who is in late stages of PD with PD psychosis (now you know why I'm so concerned that she's changed the timing of his medication). But certainly there must be a licensing board in CT where I can file a complaint about her unethical behavior???
Thanks for your time.
