I have accepted a position in a nicer part of town. Staff seemed very friendly when the DON walked me around the place. The facility was set up very resident friendly with a nice open large lounge area with big screen TV for them. They also have the computer charting, which I really, really like! Have high aide to resident ratio, so nurses can focus on our duties, rather than always having to help the aides. They have it set up so the aides are paired and work in teams. Got the call yesterday offering me the position. Explained the trouble, I was having when I interviewed about staff in other facilities always thinking, I am their personal lifting machine while trying to pass meds or trying to chart, to the point I could not get my nursing duties completed. The director of nursing assured me it would not be happening there. So, all turned out well.
