In today's hospitals
and extended care facilities a nurse assistant is an important part
of a health care team that includes many personnel outside of nurses.
Nurse assistants are needed to provide routine care so that nurses
can provide care that only they can perform, as outlined by each
state's Nurse Practice Acts, such as formulating
care plans, nursing
assessments, administering medication,
and assisting in surgery
room preparation. The nurse assistant must not only be very
skilled in the actual procedures
being performed but must also be able to observe a patient's condition
and report that information back to the nurse. Due to other responsibilities,
the nurse cannot spend large amounts of time in the room with the
patient so the nurse assistant is often referred to as the nurse's
"eyes and ears". The median
wages for a CNA are $11.14 hourly, $23,160 annual .
Common basic tasks may include any of the following:
- Answer patients' call signals.
- Turn and reposition bedridden patients, alone or
with assistance, to prevent bedsores.
- Observe patients' conditions, measuring and recording
food and liquid intake and output and vital signs, and report
changes to professional staff.
- Provide patients with help walking, exercising,
and moving in and out of bed.
- Provide patient care by applying dressings and
supervising exercise routines.
- Prepare patients for surgery, treatment, or examination.
- Transport patients to treatment units, using a
wheelchair or stretcher.
- Clean rooms and change linens.
