I uesed to go to this assisted livng place to have Sunday School, cook Breakfast and read. For the last couple of months I notice the aides slipping out the back door leaving me, the honored "Guest" there alone. The 4th or 5th time I called the owner and told her I was not "working there" that I was a guest/visitor and I did not expect to be required to bathe, toilet etc the clients. Usually I ws only there 45 minutes, but had to wait to see if the CNA showed back up. The usually did or I called the owner and told her to get there as I was leaving.
Get this, she said you are a nurse aren't you. Well she had me there, but I said I am not working as a nurse and I don't intend to do your staff's work. I won't be back. (Bad karma cam shooting through the phone lines)
Well that was a couple of months ago and now a 9 client home has opened in my town. It's operated by the former owners sister. Now she's Called ME. Should I take a chance? I remind you there was no compensation and I loved the old people, but for them to think they have an RN under their thumb is just WRONG-right?
