Unit Manager

  1. I am a brand new Unit Manager, and I feel SO overwheled right now. I have to do rounds, and find the same things the Administrator does (not just compliance, but maintenance, and housekeeping, and things that are not yet listed as issues, or in policies.) I get notified of something needing attention, and I see to it that it is done, and 10 days later if the same thing is a problem I get dressed down on the flor in front of my staff (not to mention I am only 2 months into this job)

    does anyone have a really good (or a maybe good) list of things to look for as a unit managers checklist? I need SOMETHING, between understaffing, and haveing a lot more on my plate than I am used to, and little or no direction, i am in fear of loosing my job
