Well, I am happy you still have your job, although surveyors just love to play "Gotcha!" and make our lives more complicated, don't they?! At my last place of employment, they actually wrote up our ICF for not having enough choices of jelly flavors on the dining room table. This was at a house where we employed a professional chef who made amazing meals for our residents. Go figure!
I have worked as a nurse consultant, a health services coordinator, and as a DON. Now I've started at a different organization (one with a really good reputation in the field), as a residential director/DON of a 53-bed house (4-units, 2 of which are CP, and we're licensed as an ICF). We are facing a Public Health survey in the next couple of months, and I'm quaking in my boots, because this is my first time as a RD. I'm sure we'll be ok, although God knows what kind of stuff they'll dream up because that's what they do! We just went thru a CARF survey, and seemed to do ok, although that was for the entire organization, and they barely looked at my house. We did get a few recommendations, of course, and our biggie was also community integration and cultural diversity. We're working on that, but haven't gotten the completed report with the decision yet.
Thank God for our residents, who make it all worthwhile at the end of the day! The other evening, I stopped into one of our lounges as I made my final rounds, and said goodnight to some of my ladies. Our oldest resident asked me if I was going home then, and I told her I would be going back to my office to finish up a little work first. She said, "I know what! Why don't you bring it here, and we'll ALL do it! And then we'll tell them that YOU did it!!" You gotta love that! :chuckle What a sweetie!
Talk to you later! Hope your fine-tooth comb has all of its teeth!
