Week 8: Internal Constituents
1. Does the state you selected (Maine) have additional training requirements for Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs)? Share what you find with the class.
2. Identify something that an administrator could do in an LTSS program or facility to reduce staff risk of COVID. Try to identify something that hasnt already been posted.
Here’s my copy & paste of my classmate’s (Lauren) post:
1. In Arizona, CNAs are under the Arizona Board of Nursing-accredited programs provide a minimum of 120 hours of training, which covers 80 classroom hours and 40 clinical externship hours. CNA courses must be state approved and CNAs must pass the manual skills and written exams to be added to the Arizona CNA Registry. To ensure quality of care and protect residents, the Arizona State Board of nursing monitors CNAs within the state including training and certification. There is many opportunities for CNAs in Arizona. Certified nursing aides train under the direct supervision of Register nurses or LVNs. Training includes teaching students skills to carry out duties in Long term care, acute care, and intermediate care settings. Prerequisites to training are high school diploma/GED, 16 years, finger prints and criminal background, citizenship, TB test, immunization, and physical exam.
2. As an administrator I would first speak with employees who work at two jobs, such as a second nursing home or in the hospital. I would encourage them to stick to one facility during this time period due to the uncertainty of spread. I would delegate an employee to track all the employees who work two jobs and check the public health nursing home list to see if any facility has an outbreak. The new AFL letter regarding visitation requires indoor and outdoor visitation areas. As the administrator I would construct areas that would prevent the likelihood of spread such as maximizing 6 ft by using a Plexiglas barrier between the visitor and resident. I would educate staff and residents on the importance of wearing PPEs during visitation and cleaning the area down with EPA approved products after each visitor. These small steps could greatly impact the facility.
