Christian Health Care Center (CHCC) celebrated the 37th Annual National Nursing Assistants Week held recently and hosted an informative Ice Cream Social in CHCC’s Auditorium. CHCC never misses an opportunity to incorporate an educational component when gathering staff. A presentation on preventing pressure ulcers with a demonstration of pressure-reducing equipment was provided, while staff enjoyed ice cream sundaes. Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) were recognized with an additional presentation emphasizing what an impact their dedication and hard work has on those they care for. CHCC currently employs approximately 270 CNAs on staff.
“The CNA is an essential member of the health-care team,” said Geri Blom, RN, Clinical Educator/CNA Program Coordinator. “CNAs have a great impact on the quality of life for patients and residents they interact with on a daily basis.”
