When I was a nurse educator I recommended strongly that any time the aides needed to write a narrative note, they go to the licensed nurse for assistance.  This was to avoid the types of problem you describe.  Of course, you have to have management's and the RN's support on that one.

I have another "just for fun."  The aides where I work don't write notes unless they are filling out an incident report.  That being said, this was by far my favorite incident note I have read:

"Patient was found on the floor on her hands and knees, in doggy style position..."

They need to use more professional language. Tell them next time to write “ in the rear entry position.” 😂😂
