    Sometimes the billing justification for me being there is "caregiver" educaion. Caregiver often being the ALF staff. Really?

    You would not be bored where I am. I could use help with caregiver ed as well as resident ed. I am crunched for time and just had more put on me. I work 9 hour days and I still can't keep up. Our residents are very needy, we have an in-house doc and dentist so there is always work to do! We just had 2 call ins so I gotta get my beauty sleep.
