Hum....I had an interview at an Assisted Living Facility that has 2 50-bed units for long term residents and also a 20-bed SubAcute floor....I was asked the basic questions like:

An example of when you needed to change your care for someone during the shift due to a change in their status.

An example on when a pt was upset about the care he recieved and what you said/did.

Honestly they only asked a few questions like that for me and the rest was talking about the facility.

Hope it goes well for you....Good Luck

Ask what type of pts they normally see. What the long term rate and short term rate far as length of stays.

They might ask you do discribe how you would deal with certain situations with staff or family complaints. The basics...what are your strengths? Weaknesses?

I think we should not think of it a failing when we do not get the job. Maybe the interview went very well but it's just that they had 5 good applicants to pick through and only one position :)
