Im done with management, forever! Not worth the stress, not to mention having your license on the line at any given moment. Even if you do the best that you can, know the rules and regs, have excellant staff. There is always someone willing to step in and take it all away. No wonder that place has has 4 DONs in the last year. I guess they fire them every quarter. I was told that if we didnt make our bonus, that someone would be fired. And they wanted me to do all of the marketing. Its not my fault that our census wasnt what it should have been. Eveyone has to market. Hey, at 3:00pm, guess where every department manager was? In their cars going home. While I stayed at the bldg until 7:00
helping out in the dining room. Now theres thanks for ya.
As far as state surveyors go, dont care if I ever see another one. While they were in our bldg, one dumped her coke in my lap, didnt even appologize while I was getting up to get paper towels, they all just sat there and stared at me. One just stood there with hand on hips while watching a resident fall. Did not make a move to assist me at all. No one else around.
Luckily I got help. Im sure theyre not all this way, but from what Ive seen on the boards here, most of them think they hang the moon. Ive heard stories of them dumping water in residents beds, just to make someone do pericare, and tagging a facility for not having shaved a womens legs. Whatever! I guess if they cant find it, that make it happen.
Yes, Iam finally mad. Having been forced into resigning from a job that I had no intention of leaving. Now I cant even draw unemployment? In my area, nursing jobs
are scarce, most nurses I know are working 2 jobs just to make ends meet.
I did make an appointment to see an attorney on Monday, just to know where I stand on getting some assistance until I can get another job. They were going to fire me , but I was forced into resigning.
