I do not try to speak for all CNAs, only for the good hard working ones will I even view as a nurse aide. I will happily clarify these:

If you work double shifts because one of the nurses darlings decides to call in all the time, then you are my fellow cna.

If you get stuck with 30 patients while the brown noser gets the short hall then you are my fellow cna.

If you truly care about your residents then I call you brother.

If your back is hurting because you cannot get someone to help you lift the heavy resident who is Hoyer restricted because it terrifies them, then I call you sister.

A great few do not like what I have to write and you know something I do not care. You get no where by bashing me because it does not effect me. I know it effects you because you would not be doing it if it did not. Does what I write strike a chord with you? Are you a bad nurse and feel that I am speaking about you?

Let me say this, I am not alone in what I say. There are others who would love to speak out but do not because of the backlash from you few who make our profession hard and unpleasant.

I am a professional. I rarely use profanity but when I do it is emphasize a point. The families thread that was locked was on target and any cna that has an overload at one point has felt like saying those exact words.

The times they are a changing and one day you nurses and your friends will not be able to come round hiding behind your professional mien and try and silence the cna.

This will be my last post here because I can see this board has been taken over by nurses, and I come here to be in the company of fellow cnas.

Go to this site. There is a job forum where people discuss hating their jobs. It's a good sound-off forum.

I've been where you're at...you are good enough to work someplace else where you feel appreciated. There are better places out there.
If you truley love and are proud of the work that you do, find another place to work because you sound like you are ready to quit anyway (been there too).

Kevin this isn't the first time you have been around. Some of us remember you from before, a couple, maybe three years ago. You were just as negative and draining then as you are now.

People would listen to your concerns a lot more, if you dropped the attitude and presented yourself with a little more respectful mannerism. You come across as arrogant, indignant, selfish, hateful, negative, and immoral at times. You claim to want to speak for all CNA's but you don't-- no ONE person can do that.

You also come across with an attitude of "Us vs. THEM" and THEM would include other aides, nurses, families, management. You cannot be an effective agent for change if you cannot get the team to come together first...whether you mean to or not- you're writes here show us that you're not so much as team player as you are a rebel rouser. You may be proud of that too, I think. But it will get you no where. No one hears the message through the screams and attitude and diversive thinking.

LTC is changing too...slowly, models of care are switching from the medical/nursing home look and feel to a resident controlled model (and I doubt you could survive in this setting, because the residents would be in charge, not you...they say when they eat, shower, go to the bathroom ect ect-- not you.)

We're all different and our thoughts and ideas are all worthy of respect. You show a total disregard for this and therefore, it's no wonder you have met some resistence here. I hope someday you get more knowledge about some of the very things you complain about- there are reasons why some things are the way they are. You need to be able to see outside your own boxed little world before you can expect anything to change.

Sorry but I believe you have the wrong Kevin. I have only been coming to this site for 2 or three months.
