I think your reading this wrong. This nurse was talking about specific problems with a few CNAs. No one is saying all CNAs are horrible, we are just addressing her issue. And when I was a nursing assistant, there were plenty of times the other NA was busy and the nurse asked me to do something for her. I don't see why anyone should have issues with that, that is part of your job. And it is not "a very rare situation" to have a lazy CNA and the nurse falls victim. Just like there are lazy nurses, there are lazy CNAs. I used to work with some. There are nurses who toliet patients, feed patients, and even give bed baths. And sometimes when a lazy CNA is paired with a nurse like that, they take full advantage. Maybe when you were a CNA all the CNAs were awesome and the nurses treated them bad, but that isn't always the case.
