Specializes in Post Acute; Rehab; Hospice; LTC. Has 6 years experience.
I've always wanted to write an article, but never knew what to do it on. I worked as a CNA on an Acute Rehab unit. We had patients of all acuities, but mostly they were max assists. CVAs, paraplegics, amputees, etc. I usually had 9 patients, which doesn't sound like a lot, but it was exhausting. I miss it terribly, as insane as that sounds. So, for those of you who are interested, here is a day in the life of a Rehab CNA.
