Love the residents, high work load

I enjoy the residents at our facility, but the workload on the staff, especially CNA’s is exhausting. The resident to staff ratio is very high so you’re on your feet trying to rush from one room to another all day. Usually the only slow time is the 20 to 30 minutes at shift change. Weekends are easier because there are no baths over the weekend - more ... so that means one extra person on the floor and no removing and replacing bedding which on weekdays needs to be done by the CNA’s for the people who have baths that day (usually 10 residents). Weekdays have only two CNA’s on the floor doing all this ... - less
ProsGreat benefits, continued education, wonderful residents
ConsHigh work load, always short staffed because of this
