Ambulate Resident Using a Gait Belt

Not all patients will use a gait belt. Some may need assistance walking, others won’t. And other patients simply won’t be ABLE to walk. This patient is able to walk but needs assistance to stand. Have you ever seen a weak older person try to get out of a chair? Sometimes their legs are just not strong enough and it takes a few attempts. That’s where a gait belt comes in! But if someone is in the hospital for blood pressure monitoring, they may be able to get up just fine on their own, no gait belt needed! The point is….no two processes will be the same, because no two PATIENTS are the same. So, how do we know what we are supposed to do? Read the care plan!

See that little red button above the video? That is the care plan for the state exam. Click on it. Go ahead, I’ll wait. You are graded on reading and following the care plan – it counts big! This care plan tells us to assist the resident to stand using a gait belt and walk them 10 steps (5 steps in each direction). Always read and follow the care plan!

This video shows this skill demonstrated according to the specific testing care plan used by Prometric for the exam.

Thank God I found this course before I tested! There was so much I didn't know about that I probably would have failed if it weren't for this course. If you want to pass your CNA exam, take this course!
