I am a new CNA and will be starting nursing school
this fall. An acquaintance just asked me if I was interested in helping out her mother, who is recovering from a broken hip and cannot be left at home alone. If I decide to work for her as a private CNA, what should I keep in mind? I will need liability insurance, right? If so, do you have any advice on what company to get it from? Are there other liability or safety issues I need to think about? Any general advice? I've been self-employed for years as a copyeditor, but I'm a brand-new CNA in North Carolina and haven't worked in the medical field before. Thanks!
