Thank you, CNAs!

by Andrea Powell, HPCCR Marketing Manager

certified-nursing-assistant-emblemWe are in the midst of National Nursing Assistant Week and here at HPCCR, we want to sincerely thank our certified nursing assistants (CNAs) who consistently provide superior care to our patients and families.

Having the role of CNA in a hospice organization is an enormous responsibility and very tough job.  Nursing assistants must care for those who are confined to a bed, so they must possess physical strength to lift and maneuver the patient.  They must be compassionate listeners and have emotional depth because they are often the first ones to hear about pain and other insecurities.  Most importantly, they must truly care about their patients and their work.  And our CNAs manage to excel in all of these categories, regardless of whether they are tired, have worked a long shift, or are carrying a larger-than-normal caseload.  They offer the same exceptional care, day in and day out, and they do it with smiles on their faces and love in their hearts.

So this week, we honor all certified nursing assistants, those that we proudly claim as our own and the many others in this vast healthcare field.  If you know a CNA, please thank them and take the opportunity to tell them how important their work is.  A little bit of appreciation goes a long way.  And this week, no one is more deserving.
