Hello! I have an interview for a Unit Manager position at a SNF next week, afternoon shift. I'm kinda curious as to what all this job entails...I didn't get a ver good description when I was on the phone with the woman. I currently am a home health case manager. I'd appreciate any insight!

This will vary from facility to facility and depend of the size of the place too.

UM in my smaller LTC, is the "desk nurse". We take care of rounding with the MD, taking orders, calling MDs and families, dealing with labs, new admissions and discharges, care plan meetings, wound rounds, infection control monitoring, setting up dr appts and transportation and generally overseeing the LPNs and CNAs.
