CNA Personal Care Skills 1

Mouth care should be given to an unconscious person

Unconcsious clients are not able to keep their mouths moist and clean. The nurse aide should provide oral care at least every two hours to make the client comfortable. Even if you are not certain if the client can hear, explain what you are going to do. Proceed to give oral care. Finish by applying a lip moisturizer to prevent the lips from becoming dry and cracked.
