Throughout the course of my career I have been in ALMOST every conceivable setting. LTC, med-surg, ED, ICU, home care...Okay, here is the question and I need input from everyone with experience and an opinion. I will share your views with my new D.O.N at my part-time job. Here it is...what job description would you give, at your facility, for the nursing mgr at the rehab (medicare, short-stay) unit at your facility. Please tell me your State, Size of your facility, your general capacity at the facility, your length of experience there, who does MDS's, who does care plans
...anything you want to say...
I have taken a part-time job at a sweet little facility in my state. It is not currently my primary job, but eventually, it could be...I don't know if the reactions I am having to what I am seeing are relevant, or if I just need to take a deep breath...we appear to function so loosely that no one is accountable. I don't think any one person is at fault. I am not sure anyone is at fault. But, to leave call lights ringing for minutes at a time while nurses are at the station almost gave me a stroke. I answered many of them myself. When I was first in LTC a ringing call light was almost an emergency...(I know its not, but just saying...) Okay, ladies and gentleman, I need your input...Thank you so very much. The patients who are voiceless, often, Thank you so very much!!!
