We would call you a unit manager at my facility. You would be in charge of all things paper. Assessments, appointments, doctors orders, care plans
, assignments...you should Know everything about your residents, room, bed, dx, tx, meds, weight, diet, allergies, appointments, ADL, etc..you are expected to follow through on each and every residents plan of care. You will report this, every morning, to clinical management team and together will assess needed interventions. You said, you are working days only....well, you are responsible 24-7 for your unit. You may have to fill in as a floor nurse at any time, you will do admissions and a lot of overtime. Come in early, leave late, delegate, teach and help your staff complete their duties. It is a huge job, but when organized, very rewarding. You will learn much about policy and procedure, state regs, Medicare, Medicaid and what makes LTC tick. Congrats! I loved it years ago, one of my favorite positions. Lots of resident interaction, but little of the day to day, floor nursing task. Remember, you are part of a team... So Be a part of the team. It takes all parts of the team, for the unit to run. Treat your staff with respect and they in kind, will do the same. But you must be an example first. Peace!
