    I think that should be a must read for every CNA but also for every RN. I can't tell you how many times I've seen an RN call an older adult "sweetie" or "cute" right to their face like their some kind of puppy or something (and countless other patronizing things.) Its remembering that people have the right to be treated with respect and dignity and sometimes we forget that. Its a really moving article.
