In your nursing homes I'd like to hear how the change of shift routine goes. Specifically:
- who sits in on report--all oncoming nurses and CNAs hearing the same report from offgoing staff? OR nurses give report to nurses while CNAs report to CNA?
- If your CNAs give report to each other (without nurses) does anyone have a formal list of items they report?
Also, I'd like to know:
- what are your ratios of CNA to patients?

At my facility there is no CNA report, however the nurses do report to each other. We also have started using Accunurse whitch I feel is a wounderful technology. It is basicly like a fastfood drive through headset that resident ADL are recorded into a computer system that the nurses can look at real time. The nurses have not started using them yet but will hopefully start in 6 - 9 months. the ratio varries on 6a-2p is 7-8 residents per cna on 2p-10p it is 10 - 12 residents per cna and on 10p-6am it is 15 - 20 residents per cna. day shift has 2 floor nurses and 2 unit managers with the DON & ADON and 2 MDS nurses Mon - Fri. On SAT and SUN we have a weekend rn for 8 hrs and a treatment nurse for 8 hrs besides the charge nurses. on the weekends no unit managers are there.
