I am an RN and just started orientation last week. I look like I am fresh out of highschool but I am 26, which I think may be a part of the problem here...Anyways, on my 2nd day, one of my patient's call lights went on. A CNA went into the room then came out, I look in the room and see a tray of food untouched sitting in front of the patient, so I ask the CNA as shes turning around if she could feed the patient. She says "not my patient", she then says she will look for the aid assigned to that room, and proceeds to walk up and down the hall looking in every room for a good 10 minutes or so. I just cannot believe she is wasting her time looking for someone else to do it when she couldve been doing it the whole time. So, I stop following my preceptor and I go in and start feeding the pt. 5 minutes into it, the aid assigned to the pt pokes her head in and starts to leave. I ask her could you please feed the pt? she says "he told me he wasnt hungry" (he is nonverbal!) I say " he is eating just fine now I am trying to give meds with the RN" She totally disregards what I am saying and walks out into the hall and continues to put away linens off of a small linen cart...because that is such a priority over feeding a patient. So I didnt want to get into it with her I just fed the pt. It was only my 2nd day but I am so afraid now of getting walked all over by the aids and I am a new nurse I want to be sure I am getting the help I need from them. Should I nip this in the bud now and tell the clinical director of the floor or just see if this continues being a problem? What should I say to them when they are not doing what I am asking of them?
