Per Diem RN MDS Coordinator, Pompano Beach, FL - April 4, 2017
Long Term Care and Rehabilitation facilities have become a welcoming environment for both residents and employees. The newest concepts in long term care have been initiated to provide individuals with a comfortable "at home" environment. I have noticed that there is a lot of fluid team work in most facilities. This is particularly special in that many persons working in the environment are from different countries, bringing new customs and tradition. Of course the hardest part of my job is to meet AHCA regulations and complete the MDS 3.0 in a timely manner. This also includes Care Plan development and Utilization Review. The beauty of being a nurse is quite simple. You can look back on every day and realize that you have done something special for someone. It could have been as simple as a small conversation, or assisting an individual to complete a task they could not do by themselves. Education and providing others with valuable information about healthcare is also very rewarding. I enjoy being able to develop teams and management is also a pertinent part of my background. I have learned to have patience, respect, and tolerance toward others. Hence, I am looking to find a full-time position in health care. I am currently Per Diem but my hours are sporadic. Hopefully, I will find something suitable through your network. Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
