New Inservice Just Added!

As a nursing assistant, one of your primary roles is to collect and communicate information.  That information is collected by observing clients and communicated by reporting to the nurse and/or documenting in the client's chart.

By being able to recognize what is abnormal, you'll be ensuring a better outcome for your client(s)!  For example:  your client, Mrs. Jones has a slightly reddened area on  her hip that was not there last week.  She tells you that the area is sensitive to the touch.  You know that these symptoms are the early signs of a pressure sore.  By catching and reporting these abnormal observations, Mrs. Jones has a better chance of receiving quick treatment for her developing pressure sore.

To learn more about abnormal vital signs, pain, mental status, nutrition, elimination, skin, and more, check out our NEW inservice: "Recognizing and Reporting Abnormal Observations."

Preventing Accidents in the Bathroom

Did you know the average person visits the toilet 2,500 times a year (6-8 times a day)?  That adds up to three whole years of life sitting on the toilet!  With all that time spent in the bathroom, it's important that you and your clients know the best ways to avoid accidents.

By studying our new inservice, "Toileting Tips", you'll feel more prepared to handle challenges such as helping an immobile client to the bathroom, caring for clients with catheters, and helping your clients cope with incontinence..  You'll also review common disorders of the urinary system and the bowel, and learn how Alzheimer's and dementia play a role in incontinence.  read more »
