STNAs Are Our Backbone


June 28, 2023
Unless you have worked in a nursing environment, you probably have no idea what an STNA actually does. Yes, they keep the residents clean and make sure they get to meals and activities, but did you know they also have hidden superpowers? It's true! State Tested Nursing Assistants are the eyes and ears of our residents. They know more about the residents than anyone else in the building; sometimes, they even know more than the family members. Their job is not only to be a caretaker but a listener, a confidant and a secret-keeper. STNAs are one of the first staff members that new residents meet and are often the ones holding their hands when they pass. They spend so much time with the residents that they build great relationships and become like family.


STNAs have an incredibly physical and emotional job. They need to be strong enough to lift residents to bed but gentle enough not to wake them in the night while repositioning them. They provide comfort not only to their residents but to their family members. Families need to know that when they aren't able to be there, their loved ones are being cared for, not only physically but emotionally. STNAs empathize and sympathize. They hold hands, give hugs and wipe tears. They are truly angels in disguise and are often overlooked.

June 15-21, we celebrated our STNAs, even though they deserve much more than a week of treats, luncheons and gifts. They are the backbone of every facility. They have a thankless job, so please take time to thank them whether you are another employee, visitor or a family member. To all Keystone Pointe STNAs, we appreciate everything you do and could not do it without you!
