poor unfortunate employees who are disrespected constantly by patients and nurses. They are on the front line for a code brown or when someone's ass needs to be wiped. A.k.a. the most overworked, yet underpaid job in the history of employment :) Our world could not function without the nursing assistants, yet people constantly berate these cursed people.
well, it looks like another patient went apeshit on a cna for giving her water with ice. Of course this poor cna had know way of knowing that this patient did not like ice.
CNA stands for Certified Nursing Assistant. These are people who are underpaid and usually underappreciated. They work hard, doing the menial or unpleasant jobs which, if they weren't done would make the patients life intolerable. They usually carry out their work with no fuss and are frequently moaned at by the patients they look after. Nurses tend to look down on them, and it was possibly from this quarter that they received the sobriquet 'Cleaner of Nasty Arses'.
When my Gran was in hospital, there was this CNA who was brilliant. She looked after my Gran as if she was her own.
CNA is short for a Certified Nursing Assistant. These poor employees are typically the hospitals bitch. They are responsible for doing all of the petty and annoying tasks that the real medical professionals don't have time for. They are usually single moms and douchebag guys that failed out of nursing school or aren't smart enough to get into an advanced medical program. Qualifications are as follows: (Girls) At least two kids from separate daddy's, a neck or wrist tattoo (bonus points for both), and a nose ring. (Guys) Fake diamond earring, non-existent girlfriend, a bad tribal tattoo that your homeboy did in his garage. You must be a smoker and have an unreliable car that you will use as an excuse for multiple call-outs. Lastly, you must have a sense of entitlement toward your job. In other words, you must have the attitude that your job is actually important. We all know its not, but if you think it is then that's all that matters.
Patient: "Hey, can you get me some graham crackers? And after that, I need you to clean me up. I just took a major shit all over the bed."
