I did not have a typical day within this position. I was scheduled for night shift (my favorite shift) but I often worked 3pm till 7am. My coverage was often late, staff to patient ratio was low, staff was very over worked and I feel the patients deserved much more. Management needed a complete overall. I enjoyed my residents the most. In fact, I would often go there on my days off to visit with them. I would take them to the Casino's, and Dinner and for the one's who were not ambulatory, I would sit in there rooms watching TV or playing cards. The hardest part was watching those residents without family members to visit. The ones who were dropped off and ignored until the call of their death.
