Two CNAs

June 13-19, 2024, marks National Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA) Week. Lakes Regional Healthcare wants to recognize the team members that provide care to people within the hospital setting and beyond.

 

CNAs play an important role in patient care. They collaborate closely with nurses and other healthcare professionals, forming a cohesive team to deliver the highest quality care. Their work involves performing everyday living tasks for the elderly, chronically ill, or rehabilitation patients who cannot care for themselves. It is often physically demanding and involves lifting and moving patients and standing for long periods of time. Plus, they apply keen observation skills to help detect subtle changes in patient conditions, allowing for early intervention and prevention of potential complications. In-depth training is required to gain the necessary qualifications to cover a CNA’s wide scope of responsibilities.

 

“Here at Lakes Regional Healthcare, we have amazing CNAs that are the backbone of our healthcare system. They provide personal, individualized care to our patients and we are so proud to have them on our team,” said Lakes Regional Healthcare Director of Inpatient Services Amy Petersen.

 

Those interested in becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant can contact Iowa Lakes Community College. CNA job opportunities may be available at www.lakeshealth.org/careers.
