Hello everyone, as some of you know I am an EMT. As most of you know EMTs do NOT get paid well at all. Don't get me wrong i do alright, but I'm finding myself having to work mor and more shifts in Long Term Care Nursing Home facilities as a CNA with gas prices continuing to rise and all the other economic falls, And cuts from the Ambulance service, anyhow I work 48 hours on 120 hours off so I still have plenty time to take extra shifts and have time off. Anyway I've worked at a few LTC facilities and all of them had a CNA Supervisor, who basicallyMade the Schedules, Hired CNAs, took disciplinary action against the CNAs, helped out on the floor as needed, and assisted the DON with clerical functions when necessary. However, at one facility I worked at the DON was the dictator of the entire nursing department, did all hiring and disciplinary actions, but there were Crew Chief CNAs and Crew Chief LPNs at this facility. Just wondering how this was managed at different parts of the country, CNAs do you have a CNA Supervisor (M-F 9-5) or is the DON the head honcho of everyone?
