First off as a LNHA (Licensed Nursing Home Administrator) I would assure my staff that I was there to help them in any way possible. I would renew my CNA license- how Can I expect to have a geat well working staff if I myself am not willing to make it work? I would renew my SafeServe certification, cause again, as a leader I am there to lead by the campus. I know that most all call in’s ovcur In CNA’s and dietary- been there worked in both and know that it is a HARD job. So by bro g willing and available to my staff, there should be no reason that we could not complete the duties assigned through out the day. I am not above throwing on scrubs and climbing in the shower to help out when needed- I’m not above picking the mop to her that spill up- I’m not above coming in at 5:00 am to get breakfast started because the cooks baby is sick and she needs to tend to him- that is how I would work within a facility. 😊
Pay dietary aids more than minimum wage. They have a lot of liability with different diets and thickened liquids. Why would a "floor tech" with no liability get paid more than a dietary aide? Makes no sense.
I wold make the schedule for working mothers more flexible. Great pay
First, I will take time to get to know the people and the process. I will let staff know I am will to work with them and it take a team to do the work we do. It is important to listen to residents, families. If the request is resonate and with thee guide line corporate and state I will honor their request. However, there are times when may have to explain what their request can't be honored.
I would make sure that every employee is getting treated equally.
