Writing in nurse s notes. Writing on all PRN meds and behaviors. Excessive paperwork most that should be supervisor s responsibility.
24 6. Issues related to patient care (19 responses) When we have an emergency we are sometimes expected to take full control of the situation because we cannot get a hold of nurse on call this happens a lot. Taking vital signs this is not taught in medication technician training. Evaluating the resident.
25 7. Other issues related to patient care (including CNA duties) (103 responses) Cleaning rooms and serving meals. Washing kitchen linens. I don t think you should be doing caregiver tasks if you are hired to do medication administration. Making mixed alcohol drinks. Doing laundry. Taking out trash. Setting tables. Bussing tables.
