Director of Elder Behavioral Services
Director/Nurse Manager (Current Employee) – Taunton, MA – May 26, 2012
My day starts at 7:30 am. I review the past 24 hours, summarize census,critical issues, attend ER huddle, plan bed flow. Coordinate unit admissions, inspect unit coordinate staffing. I have learned how to be outcomes oriented and financially driven, along with a character that values the importance of integrity and transparency. My co- workers are a fabulous asset. We work well as a team, accomplish a lot and have a strong bond and a sense of trust amongst each other. The hardest part of my job is when I am so busy and 'in the moment" and cannot respond to two isses as the same time. For example, run a meeting or do a presentation and respond to a code. I work for a great company Horizon Health Care from Dallas Texas. They have been strong in my professional foundation. I also have an amazing CNO. There is so much to learn every day. The sky is the limit on opportunities for professional growth.
