Benefits of Having Certified Nurse Assistants in Your Retirement Community
The certified nurse assistants that we employ in Aston Gardens At Parkland Commons provide a number of benefits, such as:
- Managing medical equipment: This involves setting the equipment up as well as safely storing it after use. Assistants may also need to move it from one location to another and must ensure its not damaged during the process.
- Monitor patients and respond to calls: Nurse Assistants play a key role in monitoring patients for changes in their emotional or physical state. They serve as the eyes and ears for nurses who may be preoccupied with other tasks and will notify them if help is needed. They can also answer the calls of residents to handle basic, non-medical tasks.
- Serve meals while keeping the rooms clean: For residents recovering from an injury or illness who are unable to physically attend restaurants or purchase groceries themselves, Nursing Assistants can serve them meals within their domicile while ensuring that their rooms are always cleaned, including sterilizing bedpans and switching sheets.
