I admire CNAs. Mom had some really good ones but then there r those who try to get away with doing nothing. Did the patient refuse to be cleaned up. Law says u can't force them. There are aides who take the no without trying to talk the patient into doing what needs to be done. I would mention it. I found that not alk aides know how to work around these situations.

You are a medical professional. You are required by law to report any sort of abuse to adult protective services.

Any caregiver would much rather share tea and cookies with their client than clean up accidents, but unpleasant tasks are part of the job description. Not reporting this to the appropriate person at the caregiving agency leaves a vulnerable person to sit in their own mess until the next person comes along, and since it is not very likely this "caregiver" is admitting to leaving the patient unattended to those in authority will never know there is a problem that needs to be corrected.

Notify her employer that you want another caregiver. If she is only hired as a sitter and she is not trained in cleaning up, and you are required to supply all protective equipment, then you will need to go with a contract for a different level of care.
