Okay, first of all, you should always use soapy water when cleaning someone that is incontinent. If you don't, the area just doesn't get cleaned as properly
Secondly, it's not really a bed bath if you only wash the resident's legs and peri area, more like a partial one?
Is it taking you half an hour to just change them, or change them, plus redo the bed?
I usually take like 4 minutes cleaning a resident that has just urinated, maybe 6 minutes for a moderate amount of #2, but sometimes I take closer to 12 minutes with the really really soiled ones. Plus a minute running the water and 2-5 minutes to redo a bed, depending on how soiled it is. We have a lot of residents per cna at my LTC, so we have to move fast
This isn't including the "prep time." At the beginning of my shift, I go to each room and pull out 2 or more briefs, a few towels, washcloths, the soap and peri cream, and anything else I will need for the day. This can save a lot of time, especially towards the middle of your shift, when things can get very busy
I've been working prn for a few months now and I still feel like I'm so behind the people that have been working for years. Sometimes I feel like they'll fire me because I'm too slow and sometimes I need help moving a resident, because I'm not that strong. It's really stressful at times, and my coworkers don't help
Guess we just gotta persevere
