  2. Why would a facility over-hire nurses?
    I agree. We do this at our facility. Having an abundance of nurse and CNA staff has proven to be a boon. We don't have trouble filling shifts and frankly, having more PT and PRN staff and less FT...

  3. Apple in hot water over 'baby shaker' computer game.
    I play all sorts of violent video games. Sniping, stabbing people, flame throwing people, dropping frag grenades. I still personally believe Grand Theft Auto is the BEST game ever made. Running...

  4. Social Service Director and Housekeeping Supervisor's Ideas About Resident Rights...
    Not to be contrary or anything but you realize that resident's right WASN'T invented by nurses. In fact, for DECADES nurses were the MAJOR offenders until people cam along and told them how to do...

  5. Back stabbing STNA....HELP !!
    Sueing is going to go nowhere. If you were both arguing in the hallway then you both were wrong. Even if you WEREN'T arguing back the perception to the residents was that you were.

  6. Staffing in ALF
    Well the Regs say... It doesn't seem to differentiate between levels of care so I personally would maintain staffing for the entire building to the reg standards.

  7. Staffing in ALF
    No expert but here it is not determined by the resident's individual level but by the building's type of license. We have an independent living that has an AL license. To maintain the license we...

  9. PDAs and Smart Phones
    Consider what you want with it. 8320 vs 30. 20 has built in Wifi and 30 has the GPS. Also, a NEW Curve is out but I don't remember the number. If at all possible I'd suggest getting the new Curve....

  13. How do I deal with this patient's family members?
    Didn't mean to scare you. Just something I learned in my 6th week of being a CNA... The facility/organization/employer WILL try to sell you out. The only thing that saved me is that about 12...

  14. Terrible clinical day, nurses don't seem to care.
    I can't speak to nurses but even after being a CNA for a while sometimes the caring slips. Or, and I think this is worse, the caring doesn't slip so much as you get used to someone's behavior and...

  15. How do I deal with this patient's family members?
    Indeed. Courts are not likely to take your spoken account seriously. If you have detailed and dated written notes the courts WILL take that seriously. Especially as time passes because there is...

  16. Is looking at your own health info a HIPPA violation?
    It IS a violation of HIPAA and many people have been fired over it. Improperly accessing a system containing HIPAA protected material is considered a HIPAA violation. Even if the info is yours.

  17. Terrible clinical day, nurses don't seem to care.
    I'm just saying it could have been any number of things. They could have dropped the ball. Of course, if you get a sitter for everyone that is scared and confused you'd have a HUGE bill. I...

  21. Unfair Tests/Pls give advice
