:chuckle I have work in assisted living centers in the past. It was similiar to working in a skilled nursing facility. The difference was that you didn't do much medical stuff. If they are sick they are sent to the hospital. They didn't have IV's or tube feeders at the assisted living centers. Usually the med pass took a long time. Patients had falls and incident reports had to be done just like in a LTC facility. We had residents who needed skilled nursing facilities but because they were private pay they were allowed to stay at the assisted living center instead.
