    at my facility the Cna's bring their own body wash to give baths, they give us enough diapers for one round at night and complain about patient skin breakdown, they run out of OTC meds for days, the scheduler will put you down to work on your day off and have you off when your suppose to work (no travel compensation given) , but we're not suppose to speak ill of the facility. They don't want us to go union. We do need nurse patient ratios 60 patients at night with 3 cnas;; too much disaster waiting to happen

    Is there a deadline for responses to your poll?

    High on the list should be better compensation for nursing assistants.
    A men!! We make the same as Walmart employees and actually can do permanent damage to our bodies from the lifting bending etc. such an under paid job!!

    Actually i hate to date myself but i started in nursing when cloth was the only available product in LTC. Studies have proven that cloth is more effective to prevent skin breakdown. Residents are changed more often and they allow the skin to breath. Disposables are very costly though are "convenient". Im kind of liking the idea that someone is taking the initiative to use cloth. Ive been in both worlds and if I were to own my own facility i definetly would go with cloth
