This fact sheet focuses on the goals of consistent assignments in the healthcare field. Consistent Assignment (CA) is about the same nurses and assistants being assigned to work with a specific patient almost every time they are on duty. It allows the caretaker and your patient to build stronger bonds than contemporary rotation shifts. Most residents feel better with caregivers who know about their health and their preferences.
