Those are words our Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) use to describe their jobs. Did you know that CNAs work in our hospital, our clinics and in our Nursing and Rehab Center? CNAs help patients and residents with activities of daily living (bathing, grooming, eating, moving), lift and move patients and take their vital signs–but they do so much more. A CNA is involved in some very personal cares for their patients, which are extremely important to the dignity and quality of life for their patients. They often create very strong friendships and bonds with their patients. And doing those personal tasks means CNAs are often the first to notice and report signs of certain medical conditions–making their work even more vital.
