This was a wonderful opportunity for me. It was very challenging as I was responsible for each and every thing in the building as the Administrator was not on sight. I came in to the job during a time that the company was facing some big struggles. On a typical day I oversaw the entire medical responsibilities, ensured that 35 elderly residents were given proper nutrition, medical care, and treated ethically. I collected rent, negotiated contracts with various vendors, supervised medical, kitchen, and maintenance staff, fielded complaints to the proper department or solved myself. It was not unusual for me to begin my day at 3am so that I could check in on and supervise the night shift staff.
