Do you dream about call lights going off?

Are you used to expecting the unexpected on the job…including, err, less-than-pleasant “surprises”?

CNAs, we feel your pain! So we asked our Facebook fan CNAs for the little things about life on the job that only their fellow CNAs would “get”…get read to laugh and nod your head in agreement at their responses!

1. When you buy really nice body wash and lotion for your patients because the hospital brands aren’t good and you want your patients smelling nice!
Brandy Luker Sartor 

2. The haunting echo of call lights in my nightmares, LOL!
Mandy Smith

3. The fact that nurses feel stressed out with a maximum of seven patients while one aide/CNA can have anything up to 21 or more if they are the only one on shift at the time!
