I work at a Golden Living Facility. Can't say that I completely HATE it, but I don't care for it much. I know there is better out there, I have been offered jobs at better. The only thing that really keeps me where I am at is the shift I work. I am one of two LPN's that follow eachother on a 12 hour shift. This keeps daycare costs down and I get more days off to spend with my family. I like my residents but hate the facility's chaos and unorganized operation. I have worked there since I was newly graduated (6mos ago) and have repeatedly asked for a policy manual and never recieved one. I have also recently started working with the FOURTH DON in the facility in this time, I have no nurse manager for my unit which is a 29 bed med-surg rehab unit. We do sometimes triple documentation because there is no organization throughout the facility and I can't tell you how badly the staff turns over!!! The pay is decent I guess considering-- as a new grad I make 16+ an hour but I truly understand now why they gave me a 2000 sign on bonus to stay for a year!! I dont know that every Golden Living facility runs like mine, maybe it doesn't--but I would do some investigating first--ask LOTS of questions, ask for references from current staff---these are truly things I wish I had done. Hope that helps!!!
