    It is writen by someone who is not providing bed side care. Nurses do it all? - Please, only if they don't have the CNA working with them, than they have to. How about a shout out to all the CNA's,PCT's and whatever you call them, for their hard work, cleaning the vomit, changing the dipers, doing the most menial work in the hospital, so the nurse have an adequate time to pass the meds?!!!!!!!
