CNA’s are responsible for much of the care that loved ones receive while in the hospital. Whether your loved one is in the emergency room, the nursing facility or the clinic, CNA’s have a hand in their care. They are responsible for the well being and direct care each person receives in many ways.

On the job, they are responsible for assessing the patient’s physical and emotional needs. They report all necessary and abnormal information to the nurse and/or physician. They obtain and record vital signs, weight, accu-checks, intake, and output when needed. They ensure the patient is comfortable and repositioned while providing a clean, safe and comfortable environment. They use critical thinking to prioritize care and problems that present during each shift. They transfer patients/residents when they are in need and provide team support. They provide direct patient care that includes assistance with feeding, hygiene, dressing and exercises. They work as teams following the direction of a nurse to make sure the needs are taken care of for each individual.
