I highly recommend The House of The Good Shepherd.
Pros: high standards of patient care. job security.
Cons: an uncooperative nurse's aide, which was usually resolved.
I worked at The House of The Good Shepherd for 32 years. I was a Certified Nurse Aide for 18 years, then attended nursing school, and became an LPN for the remaining 14 years.
I was a staff nurse on the night shift in Assisted Living, where I was responsible for 60 residents, and also residents in Independent Living. I worked with one Certified Nurse – more... Aide, answering call bells, meeting the needs of the residents, and administering medications in the A.M. I collected urine specimen for the lab, charted /documented, completed the monthly turnover of the medication administration record, and responded to emergency situations efficiently.
I valued my good relationship with my nursing supervisor and all staff, from nursing to housekeeping.
The hardest part of the job was finishing the med pass as planned, as a resident might have concerns that required more listening time, or the occurrence of an emergency.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the satisfaction of knowing that I was serving others, and encouraging them. – less
