Staff do work with a smile and residents are very appreciative of the care they recieve with plenty of smiles.
Charge Nurse (Current Employee) – Wichita, KS – April 7, 2016
Begin the morning with report and follow up immediately with any resident that there may have been a concern about and inform staff of updates to be aware of. Vital signs and morning medications are administered. Chart on all residents throughout the shift, complete scheduled skin assessments, attend "stand-up" meeting after residents eat breakfast, communicate with APRN and any PT members regarding residents.
Communication is key within any organization to make things flow as smoothly as possible. No organization is not without this flaw.
Management make themselves available for staff with any concerns.
My co-workers make my job easier, they are awesome with the residents.
The most difficult part of my job is when something has not been communicated to me for some reason or another. Communication, communication, communication.
Anyone can have an enjoyable job with the right attitude.
Staff to patient ratio.
