Default What Nurses Shouldn't Ask CNT's To Do

"We all know the stories and the urban legends of CNAs always doing the dirty work (bed baths & bedpans to name a few), while the RN/LPN walks away. I have seen them answer a call bell, learn that they need to get their hands dirty. They walk back out of the room and call/delegate the task. There are actually individuals out there that believe that once they are licensed, they don?t need to get their hands dirty"???

"The professional rapport you have with your CNA can make or break your career. What goes around comes around. If you cannot make the time to get your hands dirty, the CNA will not have the time to keep you from ?drowning? in your time of need. It really is that simply. It?s called teamwork".

"A nurses? aide is the unsung hero of the nursing world. When we speak of bedside care and we refer to the ?team effort? this part of the team is probably the most under-appreciated, yet most needed team member. They are the silent majority. When they are doing what they do best, you sometimes (more often than we like to admit) forget they are there. But, when they are absent it turns your whole world upside down".
