Our CNAs do a lot of transporting and stocking. They also help settle a patient when they get to PACU, helping to put monitoring equipment on, call the floor to let them know the patient is in PACU and put orders in for labs and x-rays as instructed to by the nurse. They also to bedside blood glucose tests when asked to by the nurse. Oh yeah and set up CBI fluids, so the nurse just has to connect it to the patient after double checking it.
