1.) Tell your patients to just press their call lights and their nurse aide will come help.
- 9/10 times the nurse aide just heard your lazy ass say that because they are busy assisting the last person you told that to in the next room.

2.) Walk right by a call light going off.
- It is your job title on the line. You are accountable for what that patient needs. Nurse aides are exactually what the title says. An aide for their nurse, not your person to call on to do everything for you but get your paycheck. "Oh, would you like me to help wipe your ass too, almighty RN"?? Which brings me to my next opinion..

3.) Don't brag about how much you make every shift you work.
- It really just looks trashy, no matter how well you are off.

4.) Don't expose confidential patient information over a personal phone call to one of your buds around a whole bunch of aides who you continously do the above mentioned to.
- It is a HIPPA violation and someone might have finally had enough of your lazy ass :)

Anyone else have any opinions?

i worked as an aide, and in home care. i and another nurse aide saw a nurse slap a patient, talked to the state of missouri from jefferson city. did a taped interview what we saw. but the family wouldn't press charges. i loved taking care of patients. i would use my own finger nail polish to make them feel pretty. i would take popcorn on the weekends to the sun room, while the men were watching sports.

MamaRN. One day you'll be old or need care from LPN or NA. I promise they won't be too sympathetic towards you with your attitude. An RN is nothing in the grand scheme of things. If you think you are above everyone and act prudently towards others, karma will only get you in the end. Your nothing if you cannot care for the decency of others, including your coworkers.

u must have alot of issues within urself if it makes u feel better to treat ppl like u do. Havent u ever heard of treating ppl how ud like to b treated? Itll come back around, may not be now or a year from now but if you ever have a streak of bad luck or faced with some hard things in life, remember how you once were. Sometimes its too late to go back and fix things!!!

I would never be jealous of someone with this type of outlook on life. You give nothing, you recieve nothing.. If it gives you fulfillment and joy out of life to set yourself higher than a na then more power to ya. Way to be one above an ass wiper and just another nurse in a doctors eyes! I don't measure my sucess and enjoyment out of life by who I am above, people that do so in my eyes are selfish and sad... Nothing else is better then looking back at what I do have and how fortunate I am. It's sad to see people like you who are always miserable because nothing is ever good enough. Really is sad that you look through life with the perception you do, probably have passed up many things, because you are better than that..

..And I guess wherever you went to school gave everyone a degree, illiterate or not. Atleast be professional with your "RN" and show us all you can spell and form a complete sentence!.. "Uhh yeah I learned in nursing school while getting my nursing degree that all i hafta do is tell the cna to do it and uhh yeah uhhh i guess thats about it because im so smart oh and i tell them to wipe ass with their degree of being a nurse aide because thats what i do and nurse aides have a degree in aiding us registered nurses because we need aides to do everything for us but they are beneath us!!" - Just keeping it Southern Missouri for you..(That's where we live by the way)

Can you give medications, enemas, Foley catheters, call the doctors, deal with informing the families,chart assessments and findings?
The answer is no. When the rn is telling the patient that it is only because YOU didn't tell them to hit the call light when they needed you. Team work is key and since you can't do any of the above, please do your job and take care of basic patient needs. And smile.

Yes, actually I do foleys and enemas, and even do your blood sugars too! I guess that is something really hard to do? I can call the doctor (usually secretary does that anyways for you) All you do is answer questions asked by the doctor and tell them what is going on. I can and do deal with families, a lot of times dealing with their aggression towards something a RN didn't do or address. I also look out for things that the RNs claim to assess and let them know. I, more times than not, notify the RN when their patient has went bad. They don't spend enough time with their patients to notice a difference, too busy with all that paperwork! Usually provide first hands on care to my patients.. Apply butt cream, turn them, wipe their ass, feed them, check vitals, bathe them, ambulate them, talk with them, you know all that extra stuff that you don't do. The only thing I'm not legally allowed to do is pass meds. I'm sure that's way too hard to do too. Common sense and following specific written instructions always is a hard thing to do... Right? But I don't do those really hard assessments like listening to a patients belly sounds, heart, and lungs, figured I had to leave something valuable enough for you to do!! I can even count to 100!

I can even read the heart monitor and tell you what your patient is doing when you call and ask. So what is a RN without their ass wiping NAs?

Sounds like Lpn is too busy running her mouth on topix to pay attention to anything else in a healthcare setting. Lpn if you don't like your job or duties it would be wise to find another career.

Nurses, be nice to your CNAs and they'll be nice to you. They'll go above and beyond for you.

Good CNAs aren't in it for the money. There is nothing glamorous about the job. The rewards come from the patients and their families. Real CNAs take the job because they honestly want to help people. They want to help their patients and they want to work together with the nurses. Yes, there are bad CNAs out there. There are bad nurses, too.

To all the good LPNs and RNs out there: please keep treating your CNAs with dignity and respect, and they will not only keep up the good work; they will dig deep and find the energy to do anything else they can to help.

(Also....I think that all nurses would benefit from having to spend at least 6 months on the floor as a CNA before they are accepted into nursing school. I have worked with many LPNs and RNs. The absolute best nurses were always CNAs first.)

Indeed. Find another career that requires an equal or higher degree of skill and responsibility like being a Clerk at Rhodes.

Powertrip much? Glad you can successively toot your own horn. I always tell my patients to press their light if they need anything, while smiling! Thing is, It's not just my job to make sure their needs are taken care of. You are right, team work is key..so do your part. Caring for someone doesn't involve sitting on your rump and waiting for someone else to do a job that is "under" you.

Wonder where you work? NAs at the hospital I work can not insert foleys, enemas and don't do the patients (not ours) blood sugars. Also our secretaries do not call the doctors. So maybe you are working somewhere you are not happy? Find a new job.
