They may work under the direct supervision of medical professionals, usually registered nurses. These aides keep records of services performed and of clients’ conditions and progress. They report changes in clients’ conditions to supervisors or case managers. Medication aides also work with other medical staff.  Occasionally, they change bandages or dressings, apply ointments or creams, care for skin, or help with other medication needs.  Source:  Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2014-15 Edition, Personal Care Aides, on the Internet at http://www.bls.gov/ooh/healthcare/personal-care-aides.htm (visited September 15, 2014).
