  1. New Wellness Director

    Sleepwalker I feel that way at times trust me. I've been doing it since late Summer. Please elaborate. I've been cleaning up charts, getting POLST forms for all residents with code status, etc. The last survey (which I was there for as the nurse...
  2. New Wellness Director

    Hello... Ling one grab the popcorn! I have not been a nurse very long, just three years. The opportunity fell into my lap last fall to become the director in an AL/memory care. The former director just did not pan out. I'm not sure exactly why...
  3. Hi all. This has probably been covered but bear with me :) I have worked in ALFs as a CNA/med aide before . I've recently moved from nursing home to assisted living as a LPN. Is it me or have they become VERY similar? It seems the ...
  4. CNA's Are Tired Of Laziness

    You are right. Nurses need to help with the care of their residents. I work in a place where the aids aren't responsible for vitals . The nurses get their own vitals. I personally toilet, answer lights, get ice water, pass nourishments and snacks, an...

    You all are so right..it makes us LPNs feel like we are pointless! I'm sorry I know I'm not able to tell the RNs what to do and what I'm not going to do. But for the sake of the residents I just try to brush off the egos but when I see a wrong I feel...
  9. CNAs running the building??!!

    This is a rant- Before I get anyone upset - I was a CNA for almost ten years before becoming a LPN. What I'm noticing is it seems as if the majority of ltcs, the aides run things. I don't know about you all, but I don't remember it being this ...
  10. How much experience for unit manager?

    Hi all! How much experience do you all think an LPN should have in LTC/nursing home to be unit managers? Most job postings require RN but I be have seen ads for LPN/RN. Also, for any current unit managers, what's your day to day responsibilities. ...
