Charge Nurse (Former Employee), Mechanicsville, VA – August 24, 2013
Pros: the bistro deducted meal costs from pay.
Cons: very strict attendance policy/no excused absences even with a physicians note.
I worked the 7-3 shift as charge nurse of the Life care unit full time. I learned that the rich elderly have a much nicer environment and better patient to nurse ratio-only was responsible for 15 residents. – more... Management and co workers had a much easier job here than most places I have worked. The hardest part about this job was being able to always satisfy residents that have had a wealthy lifestyle. The most enjoyable part about this job was the environment was pampering to both the residents and the staff. – less

Pros: free food
Cons: not being paid enough.
I would go to the main kitchen to review orders placed by the residents. I would then prepare my food cart with the wanted food, take my cart to a "pod" and serve those who assigned to eat in that "pod"
