    we do not use an on-call rotation. I have RN suprvisors in the building around the clock. If they have a question, they call me. I get maybe 5 calls a month. If they can not reach me, they call the NHA.

    Our consultant (read queen of all) has decided we don't need managers or supervisors since "what do they do?". Really?!!? Apparently it's been more than a while since she actually spent time on a nursing unit.

    Our supervisors are also responsible for responding to the pull cords being pulled in our two independent and one AL apartment buildings that are attached to us. they handle staffing on off-hours, follow-up on incident reports, and complete the multitude of audits that we perform daily. They are my mini me.

    At my place, the ADON, SDC (2--they job share), MDS, the two unit managers, and myself (Mon-Thu eve supervisor) rotate the on call schedule. In the almost 4 years I've been there, the on-call's been called in 4 times. Not too bad.

    Your consultant definately sounds like an idjit. No managers or supervisors for 181 beds?! No way she's spent time working a floor.
