Participating olympians represented Signature HealthCARE of Bluffton, Signature HealthCARE of Bremen, Signature HealthCARE of Fort Wayne, Signature HealthCARE of Muncie, Signature HealthCARE of Parkwood, and Signature HealthCARE of Terre Haute.

The inaugural CNA Olympics were planned by SHC of Parkwood’s DON, Amy Buckley, who hosted our event last year. It was such a huge success that it was held once again.

This year’s events included Bed Making, Wearing Isolation Precautions Equipment, a Sacred Six Quiz, Wheelchair Assembly and Disassembly, TED Hose Application, and a Mystery Event which ended up as Filling Water Cups.

The Team Relay Event included dressing a mannequin, making a bed with a mannequin in the bed, assembling and disassembling a wheelchair, and reciting all of the Sacred Six Value names.

Many thanks to Ben Wells, Haley Arnett, and SHC of Muncie for hosting it this year. Congratulations to all of our participants! What a great way to showcase our Urban Indiana CNAs!
