  2. Did AIDS patient can share same room with other patient?
    I really think you need to go and speak with your instructor. Also do some reading on HIV and AIDS. I am doubtful that the "AIDS pt." has full blown AIDS and is sharing a room with someone who is...

  5. Question!
    I'm not sure anymore, and I've lost touch with one of them. I believe she was started in L&D but moved to postpartum later. I know LPN's at that particular hosp aren't able to work in the nursery,...

    I agree, because most of the CNA's here understand the reasoning behind telling their superior, the Nurse or Charge Nurse, that you're taking a break. If you're playing fast and loose with your...

    The pee break is getting blown out of proportion here. The OP said "stepping off the floor" which can be for anything from a pee break to lunch. From your responses, you seem to be just getting a...

    No, it's NOT kindergarten, it's WORK, and as a supervisor of the CNA's at work, I too expect to be notified of when they leave the floor. I also have the courtesy to let my CNA's and the other nurse...

  14. Catchy One-Line Phrases
    lol, while in the room administering meds, two CNA's gave the woman in the next bed a boost, and apparently came very close to banging her head on the headboard. They both apologized profusely, and...
