What if professional caregivers ran the country? I know first hand that Certified Nursing Assistants are masters at managing time and resources and they can summon a great deal of patience. Professional Caregivers can manage and know how to compromise and they unquestionably look beyond their own needs to care for others. They are determined and they face the unknown with courage, and grit,
and determination. These are some of the many qualities I'd hope for in someone representing my town, state, and country.
However, for most professional caregivers if there isn't the time, money, or energy to run for office, still caregivers can promote change by advocating for themselves and the person for whom they are providing care. Certified Nursing Assistants can start by visiting our Advocates pages. This is a great starting point for those who want to get involved.
Your advocacy can help all caregivers.
Skin tears represent a major problem affecting the elderly residents in nursing facilities. It has been estimated that at least 1.5 million skin tears occur in institutionalized residents every year. They can cause the resident to suffer a great deal of pain, the Certified Nursing Assistant to waste precious time and the nursing facility to lose money.
