Did you get it?

A big part of what CNAs do is to “Observe and Report”. Recognizing and reporting abnormal values is one of the MOST important tasks CNAs perform! If an abnormal vital sign is not recognized or reported – it won’t get treated. And if it doesn’t get treated, it can result in serious consequences for that patient! Click through the interactive lessons to learn what normal values are – and what needs to be reported.
