Nurse Education Nursing Assistant Skills
Overview:Cleanliness is extremely important for the physical and emotional well-being of an individual who is dependent upon caregivers. Bathing provides the resident with mild exercise, provides an opportunity for close observation of skin condition and enhances circulation.
Medcom's classic Nursing Assistant program on bathing has been revised and updated to be more convenient to use, more concise and easier to understand. Bathing skills are now presented in two shorter programs to make education more flexible and convenient. And, learning retention is enhanced by clearly identifying each of the three stages of a procedure: preparation, the procedure itself, and completing care. In addition, these programs have been updated to demonstrate the performance of nursing assistant skills as described by the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program (NNAAP™).
