  • Many patients also need to take a bath before sleeping. So a CNA should be willing to perform such harsh duties to keep the patient satisfied.

  • Along with the patient, CNA should also look after his own hygiene.

Physical and emotional support
Physical and Emotional Support

  • The patients that are disabled or injured cannot perform physical activities themselves. It is a job of a nurse to provide physical support to the patient.

  • It can be in many ways like, changing the sides of the patient, assisting to the bathroom etc.

  • Health care of the patient is more important so the physical activity also involves taking the patient for a walk.

  • Along with physical assistance, emotional support is also very important. Many CNA’s can relief a lot of stress by just talking to their patients, telling them stories to keep them happy and they also listen carefully to what they want to say.


  • To keep track of the patients’ diet is also very essential. A CNA should provide a nutritious and healthy food to his patient.

  • He should prepare snacks and meals as required by the patient following the instructions provided by the concerning doctor.


  • Nutritious fruit should also be fed to the patient to keep them healthy and fit.

  • There should be a proper schedule of what to be given at which time and how much


  • A CNA should keep the surroundings and the environment clean in which the patient lives. This helps in avoiding any bacteria or dirt that can prove harmful for the patient.

  • Cleaning also includes changing bed sheets and cleaning bathrooms to defeat germs.


  • Sometimes the patient accidently urinates on bed so a CNA has to clean that up too.

  • Apart from that a CNA’s own personal hygiene also matters a lot.

  • He/she should also keep clean to protect the patient from germs.

  • A CNA should keep a sanitizer to wash hands with before contact.
