CNA's: The Backbone of Long Term Care

If there is anyone in long term care you can count on, it would be the certified nursing assistant. CNA’s are often referred to as the “back bone” of long term care. They are known to serve patients with a smile and make them feel more at home in an often unfamiliar environment. Certifed Nursing Assistants are sometimes called nurses aide or home health aides, and work under the supervision of registered nurses.

CNA’s commonly provide personal care to patients in long term care facilities and assisted living facilities by giving shower, and assistance with day to day hygiene. In the health care industry, wherever there is a need for personal care, CNA’s are the ones who perform or assist the basic needs for patients. In-home certified nursing assistants sometimes provide care 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

As with all health care providers, CNA’s are expected to provide the highest quality care with passion and commitment.
