  1. Workflow for Falls?

    Hi there! I'm a resident care director in an ALF. We have a licensed nurse in the building from 8a-8p and my RN designee and I rotate on-call responsibilities after hours. I've written a "fall policy" which includes the basics about how to immediatel...
  2. I’m sure it’s been said, the only issue I would have is that you are held ACCOUNTABLE to the highest level of license you possess. CNAs don’t have as much to risk as you do liability-wise. Good luck. And relocate. The east coast has plenty of RN posi...

    Hi there! I'm about to start a new, ill-defined, position in a SNF. The home is in transition and exhibiting all the signs of such! Management is in upheaval. Key positions are vacant. Senior staff are resistant to change. It's frankly, a hot mess. ...
