Oooh... crabby day?
Don't know what kind of CNA program you are in but in ours we had to make a minimum grade of 80% on the things we were taught in our classes and finish our classroom hours before having contact with PTs. If you are going to be in nursing you are going to come into contact with body fluids. When doing mouth or peri care wear gloves for certain. The gloves are for several reasons. 1. So you don't contaminate the PT. 2. So you don't come into contact with pathogins. 3. To stop the chain of infection and spread nasty things around. Gloves, masks, gowns, all depend on the situation.
I have learned one thing in clinicals. I'm not going to buy some of those really cute nursing shoes
that looklike mary janes with the strap over the ankle.
On my last day of clinicals while giving a PT a shower, as helping her stand to get dressed I felt something heavy fall on my shoe. I looked down, and Oh My! It was 2 1/2 inches in diameter, round and golden brown. It was solid so it bounced right off my shoe. So glad I had on lace up atheletic shoes! Oh Dear! Poor thing! I felt so sorry for the PT. She was an Asian lady that didn't speak English, and she was so embarrassed. Had to clean her up all over again, but this time me too! Lysoled the shoes!
Can't believe your instructor has you on the floor unprepared. For your own good, get out your book and read, read, read! Teach yourself everything you can, because it doesn't look like your instructor is.
