Memphis questions


Hi -

Considering a move to Memphis area, from rural South Mississippi.

I have 3 questions:

Does your facility pay extra for a certified geriatric nurse?

Do any Memphis area hospitals have geri-psych units?

What Nursing Home has the best reputation in the area, best management, pt. care, and employee morale?

I work for a facility called the Memphis Jewish Home. It is a five star facility located in Cordova and it is one of the BEST for nursing home employment. Check it out.

I am not from Memphis, but my boss is. He is our administrator now at our nursing home, but he used to be administrator at a huge home in Memphis. I asked him your question, and he said the Jewish home was known to be the best on all levels.

Delta Medical Center has a Geriatric-Psych Unit and I believe St. Francis does too.

I agree with the above poster...Memphis Jewish Home is top notch. I work in an ER, and while there are some nursing homes that I wouldn't send my dog to, I actually don't mind getting patients from MJH at all. The residents and staff all seem very content, and the patients appear to be extremely well cared for.

St. Francis has a geri-psych floor, I know. But I think they are on a hiring freeze right now...the staff is all very uneasy concerning the 'state of the union' so to speak.
