Response to dflprincess (Reply #5)

6. In Ohio, CNA is required for nursing and long-term care, I believe.

At least it is at the facility where my relative lives. There is also another similar designation to CNA, which I don't recall the name.
I don't know about assisted living.

Believe me, many of the CNAs are not temperamentally suited for nursing work. Those who apparently got the certification in high school must have been told it would get them work, which it does, but many are rude and bully the residents, etc.

There are currently shortages of workers in the field, and it appears to be staff which brings in Covid to the facility, infecting the vulnerable residents.
