The problem is that if I work as a CNA I'm held to the standards of my own license. So if I notice and issue with a patient, report to my RN and she doesnt want to act, I'm left in a quandry.

If I don't notice an issue, possibly because I don't have all the information the RN got in her report, I'm still held to an RN standard. Either one of those situations can come back to bite me.

So you inform the charge or you call a rapid. Even as a CNA you are still a patient advocate.
