Pros: great residents
Cons: bad management
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 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.
