I am ADON and the DON was off today. The general manager wanted me to look into why a resident was not on shower schedule. Since it was never explained to me I texted her to ask who was in charge of making the list. She called me to say that I am not allowed to call her all weekend no matter what. And she will deal with it on tues.
I do not understand, if you are a DON sometimes you have to deal with things at any time. She is salary and I am hourly.
Your right, I should not have bothered her. Just wanted to have an answer for the general manager. I am new and did not know who made the list. But I was wrong to call her. Thanks for your input. The resident family called because resident told her she was not showered for 2 weeks and the DON did her paperwork. The GM was very upset and wanted answers.
