February 12, 2009: The stressed out life of a nursing assistant:"This morning I got a call from a supervisor of a nursing facility. This supervisor was beyond frustration. Stressed, disappointed and between a rock and a hard place. The supervisor had three nursing assistants call out of work for the day shift on a Saturday. Unfortunately, more people call off work on the weekends than on weekdays."


Nursing Malpractice Case Studies:

September 26, 1999: Nursing Assistants Leave Client Alone, Patient Receives Second Degree Burns During Bath.
Registered and Licensed Practical Nurses frequently delegate responsibilities and tasks to Certified Nursing Assistants and Unlicensed Assistive Personnel. It is clearly recognized that they are responsible for the actions/inactions of those they supervise. In this case, two nursing assistants recognized injuries to a patient while giving a bath. When they failed to notify the nurse of the injuries, they would be reported and lose their certifications.

Direct Care Alliance:"Nationwide, we face a critical shortage of high-quality direct-care workers — home health aides, certified nursing assistants, and personal care attendants — who can meet the needs of our country's long-term care consumers — people who are elderly, chronically ill, or living with disabilities. Direct-care workers provide the vast majority of hands-on care within our long-term care health system. Consumers rely on these workers to provide them with comfort, companionship, and care in an atmosphere that preserves their dignity and well-being. As a result, consumers consistently cite the quality of their relationship with their paraprofessional workers as a primary determinant of their quality of life."

In the Know, Inc.:"In the Know is a publishing company dedicated to developing quality paraprofessional inservice solutions for health care organizations. The company was founded in North Carolina in 1998 by Linda Leekley, a registered nurse with extensive experience in clinical education, staff development and both acute and long term care. At In the Know, we recognize that: Nursing paraprofessionals will continue to be the health care occupation most in demand as the U.S. population ages. Nursing assistants play a crucial role in a health care team. Nursing paraprofessionals have the least amount of pre-employment education of any clinical employees and therefore require effective ongoing on-the-job training. A serious difficulty exists in training and retaining a strong nurse aide staff."
