“YOU’RE NOT HELPING”
In Rehab* this former C.N.A.
Finds reasons to play…
At his old job
With patients hobnob,
While staff at records write away.
While appreciating helps,
Nurse suggested these newly-trained whelps…
In skills they’re earning
In patient care without my help!
Chasing wheelchair alarms
Holds no special charms…
If they stand up and fall
Lawsuits take it all,
The reason wheelchairs are armed.
I’ve been on short staffs like then,
Staying on your toes they depend…
On you, the Aide,
To clients one must always tend.
* Rehab….short for Rehabilitation Center.
