Experience & Education

St Mary Medical

Apr 2010 - Present
Hospital
I work on an ortho floor (for 3 1/2 years) as a CNA and I am also a nursing student (May 2006). We begin our day with trying to get our baths done. Most of our patients are up for meals, so we do that. With the hip patients there are many things to remember (don't bend over past 90 degrees, don't let your knee roll in, don't cross your legs). With both the hips and the knees some physicians has specific orders regarding weight bearing status, so you have to be aware of that when you get the patients out of bed. The knee replacent patients, we put them in their CPM machines three times a day (during the dayshift) for 1-2 hours at a time. When they are up in the chair they are continously doing flexion/extension positioning with a leg lifter and rolling footstool.

Nursing home
I work with Alzheimer's for 6 years...Activities of Daily Living (ADLs): helping with bathing, dressing, brushing their hair, mouth care and eating. When agitated behaviors start, CNAs must learn to control the situation, and keep the resident safe, using verbal or non-verbal cues. CNAs communicate with many different people during their work hours, including the supervisor, charge nurse, co-workers, physicians, families and residents.
