CNA Step-by-step competencies
The HHA must ensure that all of its HHA aides, including HHA aides trained and evaluated
by another HHA or other organization, are competent to carry out assigned patient care tasks, in a safe,
effective, and efficient manner.
Any state requirement regarding aide education, training, competency evaluations, or certification and
supervision that is more stringent than the corresponding federal requirement takes precedence over the
federal requirement. Likewise, any federal requirement that is more stringent than a corresponding state
requirement takes precedence over the more lenient state requirement.
