Paid Dining Assistant

Nursing and Nursing Support

Paid dining assistants are single task workers who:

  1. Only feed residents who have no complicated feeding problems as selected by the nursing home based on the resident’s latest assessment, plan of care, and determinations by the charge nurse that the resident’s condition at the time of such feeding meets that plan of care and that the paid dining assistant is competent to feed that particular resident;
  2. Work under the supervision of a licensed registered or practical nurse who is on duty, physically present in the nursing home, and immediately available; and
  3. Must call a supervisor for help in an emergency.

Paid dining assistants must not perform nursing or nursing-related services. Paid dining assistants are only to supplement and not to substitute for licensed registered and practical nurses or nursing assistants.
