RN (Former Employee) – Orchard Park, NY – May 6, 2014
I started my day at 2:00 pm. We did walking rounds where the previous nurse and myself would go to each of the patients rooms and she would tell me about each patient. Father Baker was a sub-acute rehab facility so we would get surgical patients and also reconditioned patients. Next I would finish any assessments that happened to needed completed, hang IV's and pass meds if necessary. Next I would admit new patients order medications from the pharmacy. The hardest part of the job was time management. But I did learn alot there with me being a relatively new nurse

Walk down the halls and everyone smiles and greets you. There is a friendly atmosphere that is contagious. As a nurse my day is very busy, however, the patients usually brighten my day. My coworkers are fun and helpful.
someone is always cleaning something
only vending machines for food, in the middle of no where.
Work consists of taking care of residents and their daily needs. The management isnt always willing to help or work with you. The co workers change therefore its not easy to rely on anyone cause you never know who you are going to be working with.

Taking care of the elder doing everything you would do to get ready for the day. Learned tons of things from the stories they tell you. Management was not that great. Wasn't always fully staffed and sometimes they don't work together that well.

The policy of not accepting doctors notes and for them to count as calls off which is how I lost my job is so strange and this is the first place I've ever seen have this policy. I personally don't think its fair and its not fair for them either but I don't think you should lose your job over things you cant help. Also I can never work for Catholic Health ever again how rude is that. So many people are looking for jobs out there and once you're let go you cant work for any of them. I loved working there an wish I still did because the patients an co workers were fantastic and there is always going to be drama and people who don't like you even though they don't know you but I do miss it there, an you have to think of it as you're not there to make friends you're there to take care and/ or guide those who cant do things themselves. No one is your friend you should never take shortcuts because there will be that one person who will fib because you don't do something right. Everybody takes shortcuts no matter how much people deny it.
