This is a rant- Before I get anyone upset - I was a CNA for almost ten years before becoming a LPN. What I'm noticing is it seems as if the majority of ltcs, the aides run things. I don't know about you all, but I don't remember it being this way before.. For example, how can someone not licensed tell a NURSE how to do their jobs? Or give an attitude when the charge nurse has to ask them to do ... you guessed it their jobs! I think if you have a nurse who will answer lights, toilet, provide peri care right alongside the aides, the nursing assistants should have a little respect for the nurse. It's been said many times..along with running the med pass, vitals, and treatments, the nurse is also thinking about a million things, charting, and making sure meds are reordered and available. Does anyone else get soo tired of it?
