I have an interview tomorrow w a rehab/LTC facility. My job would be as a Case manager Liaison, going to one of five area hospitals to "recruit" residents and refer them to this facility.
I was trying to do a little research on the facility, as I always do before an interview, by checking out their web-site, well I came up empty, so did a google search, and came up w a warning about the facility due to substantiated c/o actual harm and/or immediate jeopardy.
Ironically, I was being all cool, and decided to load all my resume info into my palm, so if they wanted names and addresses of references, license no.s etc, I would have it all in there. I decided to make a short list of my questions for them. Here is the irony... my lasy question was going to be..."Pretend my family mbr was going to be sent to a rehab s/p tkr, how would you sell me on this facility?"
I was so proud of myself, I think I had come up w one of those ugly questions like they ask us to put us on the spot for interviews, and wouldn't it be lovely to watch them squirm for a change?? LOL. Kidding aside tho, I would be actually expected to do just that, sell people on the facility.
This place is about 30 min from my home, and I have never worked there, or known anyone who has, so I truly have no reference. I honestly couldn't work someplace that puts people at harn on a reg basis.
Some of the violations inc food sanitation, insects/rodents, not investigating reports of abuse or ensuring no prior incidents of abuse before hiring.
If you were me, would you show them the copy of the report card I printed out? It may not be a very smart move if I want the job, but then again, maybe I wouldn't really want it.
If you did show them the report, would you do it after they gave you the fluff about convincing me to send my family mbr there? Or skip the on-the-spot question and go right to how would you respond if someone you were working with to transfer to this facility confronted you with this report, obtained on a simple search of your facility's name on the internet?
I am thinking the second question. Less confrontational, but the question needs an answer, don't you think?
So, how would you proceed? Suppose every other thing about the job was perfect? I truly like that the job entails movement from five diff hospitals, I hate to feel trapped and stagnated in one place. I am THE nursing gypsy!
