In a Skilled Nursing Facility the rehabilitation of the patient is very important to keep in mind. Not only administering medications in a timely manner is a daily goal, but providing compassionate care for the resident.
A typical day at a SNF is a fast pace environment were multitasking is a tool needed to provide attention and service, to multiple patients, in order to accomplish a job well done.
Team work is another needed feature. Encouraging staff members to work together for the benefit of residents and coworkers is not easy due to the lack of staff available in the daily operations of the SNF.
The most enjoyable part of the job was been able to leave on time at the end of the day, knowing that your patients/residents had been taken care appropriately and with care and dignity.
