Type of Care Provided

Scenario

Care provided in this capacity is done through clinics such as 24-hour urgent care centers and minute 

clinics provided through local pharmacies or community locations. These facilities increase access to 

care at affordable rates and in convenient locations.

You are the Director of Human Resources for a small rural care center. Your Care Center Administrator 

(CNA) visited your office today with some issues regarding the high turnover of CNAs in all seven nursing 

wings. She has been experiencing this phenomenon with her CNAs the past 3 months, thus decr

easing 

overall patient quality care, along with adversely affecting the labor budget due to numerous call-offs 

from the CNAs. When added to the high cost of using registered nurses, this is a serious issue. None 

of her nursing supervisors can explain the reasons for the turnover, but only provide feedback that your 

organization is hiring the “bad ones.” She is asking for your ideas on how the car

e center can recruit and 

retain more talented and devoted CNAs.

You perform an immediate cursory assessment of the turnover and determine that, at the current rate, 

there will be 100% loss/turnover of CNAs this year. This initiates an emergency meeting with the Ad

ministrator, Director of Nursing, the Assistant Directors of Nursing, the Staffing Coordinator/Scheduler, 

and three charge nurses. The purpose of the meeting is to determine why your facility is losing so many 

CNAs, especially when compared to similar care centers in the area.
