Unit Manager (Current Employee), St. Louis, MO – June 3, 2014
Pros: coming in a little later
Cons: having to stay to make sure things were done .
Finding out what when on while I was off. Going to morning meetings. Checking lab and medical orders to make sure they were implemented and reported. Going over nursing charting and medicine charting. Dealing with complaints from residents and co-workers. Making sure units were running smoothly by making sure all nursing jobs were done. I learned to – more... check for yourself when someone said a job was done. My co-workers were pleasant for the most part. hardest part of the job was keeping up with all the paper work. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing a smile on a resident face. – less
Go to work team meeting at every start of shift except for weekends. Verbal reports, first rounds on residents, dinner, second rounds, visiting time, last rounds bed time, making sure residents are happy at all times. What I learned was how to enjoy the small things people take for granted. Management was not confidential or professional. Coworker understood – more... the meaning of teamwork but it was a hit or miss if this was carried out. The hardest part was working with the hospice residents knowing not to get to attached. The most enjoyable part of my job was when it was slow I was able to get to know my residents and hear their life stories and at the end of the day have them say thank you and that they'd seem me the next day. – less

Cons: work place chaos
Company based on who you know not what you know. One of the worst jobs I ever had when it comes to confidentality. Co- Workers were nice for the most part. Hardest part of the job was walking through the door. Thanks but no thanks type of job.
