One of the associated duties of this profession is that they assist patients with ambulatory care. Many patients are in wheel chairs or have walkers. The CNA is trained to properly help the disabled patient get around to where they need to be. Some patients do not feel strong enough to push their own wheel chair and may require assistance at different times of the day or night.
CNA’s also offer assistance at meal time for their patients. Often the CNA will serve the meal, help cut it up if needed, or even feed the patient. Some patients require being moved into a different position when they need to eat. This is the duty of the CNA to assist them so they can consume their meals properly and avoid getting choked. In addition, after meal time the Certified Nursing Assistant will help clean the patient.
General housekeeping and hygiene of the patient are other responsibilities of a CNA. When a patient needs their sheets changed or blankets washed the CNA must assist with this. Also, a Certified Nursing Assistant must bathe their patient as well as dress them afterwards. Additionally, if the patient needs assistance brushing their hair or teeth, this is another responsibility of the CNA. Assisting the patient to use the restroom is also another task for the CNA.
The Certified Nursing Assistant will be responsible for making rounds and checking vital signs of the patient such as temperature, heart rate, and blood pressure. Furthermore, a CNA will be there to comfort the patient who may need emotional support. CNA’s often become close with their patient’s family members as well, and keep them updated on care and progress of the patient.
