Thanks so much for the replies ladies!!! I am also a little freaked out because I am going to be a "supervisor" over the CNA's. I have two teenage daughters and that's all the "supervising" experience I have!! I know how things go in nursing homes because I have been a CNA before and I just hope that I don't run into conflict. I have a pretty strong personality and I know what I will and will not put up with as far as how the patients are treated. I just don't want to come across like a "drill sargent". I have a friend that works there also and she says that everyone is really nice so hopefully there won't be any problems....or at least very few.
I'm hoping that developing a system of passing my meds does'nt prove to be a difficult thing to do either. I think I will have 20 patients to care for which includes doing vitals and treatments on them also. The CNA's are just responsible for cares and helping with feeding.
Any advise on the "supervising" aspect would be greatly appreciated
