The pace is super fast because they are so under staffed, alot of the shifts are one caregiver because people call out all the time, so the pace you have 60+ people to care for.
Agree with reply posted on June 2, 2017, except I didn't see residents doing drugs or selling meds to other residents. Nurses watch residents take their prescribed meds.
It is at a very quick pace but friendly overall

Oh my,that sounds just like Manor care where I worked,I am looking for work but I do not want to work in that type of enviroment..Too bad,our seniors deserve more and workers would surely feel bad when they go home and tired from staying over late,at mc the nurses clock out and then come up to finish there charting,incident reports,etc.There would be at least50 percent less incidents if staffing was what is needed.Wonder if the state has looked into how sick these folks are these days and what they need,,acuity of patients should matter
Not a good place to put your loved one.
One of the WORST SNFs I've worked for in 22 years. 34 patients per nurse- on day shift!!! No charge nurse. Expect to stay AT LEAST 2-3 hours after the end of your shift to complete orders, charting, incident reports, etc.. No on-call staff to cover excessive call- in. Verbally and sometimes physically abusive patients ABOUND. Patients found doing drugs and/ or selling their meds to other patients. No boundaries/ limits set on pt's abusive behaviors. No support WHATSOEVER from mgmt. No supplies. HORRIBLE PLACE FOR ANYONE, BE THEY PATIENT OR STAFF . Demoralizing, depressing, incredibly stressful. You worked hard to earn your license. DON'T lose it by working here!!
Put on your roller skates!!!
