My first job was in long term care I really like my patients. The place I work has had 3 DON's in 6 months. Is this a common occurrance? The new DON has now hired her daughter and a bunch of friends. She is also friends with the administrator. Is'nt this a conflict of interest? I am not sure I want to continue working in such an enviroment. The new DON and her daughter and friends are very rude to staff and patients. They have forced out many fulltime people. What to Do ?

I think this is a common practice now. I also work in a facility with a DON hiring friends, and treating the other staff with rudeness.
