My ED when I first started was very friendly, personable, and professional. After a while, her personality began to change. She began to have personal vendettas against some of the care team. She would cut hours of people just because she didn't like them - without any reason to. She played favorites with others, and when she did, it was quite obvious.
The last straw for me was when I had two incidences within two days of stalking by a residents family member, and when I complained about it, I was told that because it was off property, they would not do anything about it. I was told to report it to the police, and when I did that, I was told I was fired for supposedly violating HIPAA, even though legally it was not a violation at all. I walked out, but then got not one, but two harassing phone calls at home asking me to give a statement. I was placed on administrative leave and after two days, quit because of the drama. I won't work for such an unprofessional company, and have since found a new employer and trying to convince close friends to leave and join me also.
