During a 10 year period of time there were seven different directors of our geri-psych unit. There was little continunity of care. No clear direction, I often felt as if I were "winging it." There was little support from the administrative body, many employees were unaware the was a geri-psych at the hospital.
I loved working with the families and helping them find the best situation for their family member. The patients were very dear to my heart and actually a joy to work with.
