I assess every morrning. I manage a skilled unit, 38 beds, and examine every resident during breakfast. I don't necessarily do much more than say good morning and see if they're at baseline, but if anything seems off we are right on it.
There's a difference within the facility, between units. Mine is now the one everyone wants their loved one to get and I'm very proud of that. My charge is an LPN with 15 years more experience than I have and is my right arm. The aides, once they learn that you respect them and listen to them, will reward you and, more importantly, the residents, with quality care.
