CERTIFIED NURSING ASSISTANT (CNA)
Certified Nursing Assistants work closely with patients and are responsible for basic care services such as bathing, grooming, feeding, assisting nurses with medical equipment, and checking vital signs such as temperature, pulse, blood pressure, and respirations. Certification requirements include but are not limited to completion of a certificate program and the passing of a certification exam. Ally CNAs ensure our patients receive essential social and emotional support and provide vital information on patient conditions to nurses.
LICENSED VOCATIONAL NURSE (LVN)
LVNs work under the supervision of registered nurses (RNs) and physicians, providing basic bedside care to patients.
LVNs are typically responsible for monitoring patients' vital signs, including their blood pressure, pulse, respiration, temperature, height and weight. Other tasks that LVNs are responsible for include giving enemas, recording intake and output of foods and fluids, collecting samples for testing, maintaining equipment, dressing wounds, treating bedsores and giving massages. They also assist patients in getting dressed, bathing, eating, walking and standing.
REGISTERED NURSE (RN)
An RN or registered nurse is one who has graduated from an accredited nursing education program and has passed a state board examination and been registered and licensed to practice nursing.
Registered nurses are often the key monitor of patients' health through observing and assessing their records, symptoms, and reactions to treatment and care. They often have extensive interaction with patients' families as well, guiding and instructing them in aftercare measures. Their exact duties can depend on where they work and the needs of the particular patients they care for.
Non-medical caregivers are employed by skilled nursing facilities, hospitals, assisted living communities and other care agencies to assist the medical staff with disabled, chronically ill, and less independent patients and residents with activities of daily living. These activities include using the toilet, bathing and washing, dressing and meal service. They also help with other tasks like physical mobility, recreational and social activities.
Additional duties may include but are not limited to:
Accompanying residents to and from clinical appointments
Picking up residents from rehab, clinics or other units
Infection control reminders
