Take family complaints with a grain of salt. Staff doesn't need to be called out for every little thing after they have exceeded expectations on every other task. It wears us out and then we leave...

Show your employees that they are appreciated!! Stop acknowledging one mistake versus the 100’s of great things that are being done. Be more involved in the flow of the business from the employees stand point! You don’t know how hard we try to keep the residents happy! Pay more attention to detail!!

Be professional 100% of the time, you have days off to act childish.
Stop listening to the gossip mongers they are the ones you need to be watching closely.
Salaried ED’s need to stop abusing that they are salaried and work a regular 40 hour plus work week as required.
Salaried managers should be the only ones required to be MOD at any given time not a department manager or coordinators.

Patients first not profits. Focus on patient continuity, reasonable assignment time frames and caseloads with less emphasis on daily productivity. Give therapists the ability to reschedule patients as needed instead of bogging down the process with having to contact manager and scheduler. Scheduler needs to contact home health clinician before adding a patient that day.
