NURSING ASSISTANT

A Nursing Assistant is an important member of the healthcare team. They are responsible for maintaining the health and well-being of the patient. Nursing assistants help the patients with what they need, such as serving meals and obtaining vital signs. They are also responsible for providing physical and emotional support to both the patients and their families.

Nursing Assistants often have more contact with patients and their families than other hospital staff, as they are responsible for assisting patients with hygiene and proper food intake.
