  1. Wearing masks
    No. I don't get your point and your arguement still sounds ridiculous. If you don't like money, don't be a banker? Everybody I know likes money! Can you be more SPECIFIC with your...

  2. Wearing masks
    I don't know how wearing a mask is proof of being incapable of working in the healthcare field. That sounds ridiculous. Some smells are tolerable- others or NOT. Working at a hospital, I've smelled...

  4. Hospital-Acquired Infections Tied To Nurse Staffing Ratios
    We have an assigned housekeeping person who works on our floor everyday. For the amount of pay that I get as an NA, I am not taking on someone else's job. I only do what's in my job description.

  5. FED UP CNAS!!!!
    That's interesting about housekeeping. They make up the beds once a patient is discharged, but they don't make up the beds while the patient is there. Then they only work 8-hour shifts, so after...

  6. Nursing Student as CNA
    Do the best that you can when you start working as a CNA- don't do something you know you're not able to do. Ask for help when you need it. I work with CNA's who are nursing students. Some are great...

  7. Burned Out and Breaking Down
    I agree with you and everyone else. CNA's are definetly underpaid and overworked. No care's about nursing assistant/patient ratios and my facility has a hiring freeze for nursing assistants. This...

    I work on large unit and I'm tired of the floor being understaffed. I could have 20 patients and have 4 different nurses ask me,"Can you get vitals? Can you clean this patient? Can you get this...

  10. Hospital-Acquired Infections Tied To Nurse Staffing Ratios
    The patients on my unit have to share restrooms. What's so gross is that housekeeping doesn't even clean the toilets and showers everyday. The same poop stains will be caked on the toilet all week.

  19. anyone going to CCAC for nursing???
    The Spring Program is a Fast Track program. You have to take 2 courses during the summer, 102 and 201. I can't remember if the courses are 6, 10, or 12 weeks. You might want to look it up. But if you...

    I was wondering the same thing about Taber's. Most of my books are previous editions anyway. The 20th edition is very cheap on amazon.

    If you see people walking around with their thong or buttcracks showing- and I see it daily- common sense would tell you to make sure you're that your own butt is covered so the whole world can't...
