I'm a newer LVN in LTC/Rehab as well. I wanted to be that nurse too. I'm going to burst that bubble right now for you. You just can't. No matter how much you want to, you can't. Unless you are in some amazing facility, you most likely just can't. Sorry.
I run one med cart some nights, two others. On nights I run two, I have up to 40 residents. 2 g-tubes on that run, mutiple crushes, lots of residents who are very very slow pill takers, tons of Medicare charting, 9 or 10 diabetics, still more residents on breathing treatments, CPAPS to go on before bed, it's an endless list of tasks I've got to do that the CNA cannot do for me. In order for me to do it all, they must get the work I delegate to them done.
That doesn't mean I ignore requests from residents, or let people sit soiled, I don't. I don't, however, do delegated tasks. I have medications to give, families to speak to, doctors to call, changes in condition to assess. If I fed and bathed people, how would any of that happen? Would I be providing quality care if I didn't delegate every last thing I could? No I wouldn't.
The CNA'S I work with respect me. They work well with me, and they work hard for me. They do so because I made an effort with them, to learn their routines so I wasn't interrupting them unless I had to, to thank them when they did extra for me, to praise them when they were having a rough night, I listen to them about the residents and I never brush them off, and I take the seasoned ones advice on simple CNA stuff (it goes a long way to respect that they have a level of knowledge gained from experience, like how to get a reluctant resident to open their mouth to take applesauce and pills, for instance).
