The relationship between nurses and certified nursing assistants (CNAs) in nursing homes can often be fraught with hierarchy and disputes over tasks and responsibilities, as well as the normal conflicts that arise in any workplace.
To gain some insights into building collaborative care teams, we sat down with two leaders from an organization that’s excelled in that department: Presbyterian SeniorCare Network’s director of nursing Taylor McMahon and lead CNA Maggie Pernatozzi.
These eldercare veterans have spent 10 and 18 years with the
western Pennsylvania provider, respectively, and work together to
create a person-centered care force that sets the Presbyterian
SeniorCare Network apart from others in the area. Tune in for
strategies on cross-role teamwork, insights on inspiring the next
generation of geriatric nursing graduates, training and mentoring
CNAs for future success, and creating a workforce culture that
retains good people for decades.
