Do we really need that? We don't have licenses. We don't pass meds or do invasive procedures, or anything else that puts someone's life or death in our hands- how much damage could you do? I mean I guess you could drop someone, causing them to break a hip, which ultimately leads to their death. Or you could see someone choking to death and ignore it. But that's pretty far-fetched, and ultimately it would technically be the responsibility of the nurses, since we work under their supervision. That would be horrible if a nurse got sued for something a CNA did or didn't do, but it does explain why we don't need insurance.
