I have been in LTC since 1991 started out as an aide, LPN, and have been an RN since 2010. I have been head of MDS department since 1998. I recently took an ADON position, I absolutely love my new job and the people I work with right along with the ancillary departments. However I feel like I am not doing enough to help the DON. She says I am fine but after all of these years in LTC I can honestly say I have never felt so inadequate at my job. I did not get much training which is alright. Can someone give me some ideas of what you expect of your ADON ?? Mine says I am doing fine but I really want to do a good job for her, she is a great DON.
