Hire cnas that are respectful and have capabilities for their position night staff cnas are horrible. They dont care about patients they just want a job that pays them to sleep
I would take a closer look at management and figure out why there is such a huge turn-over and I'm not talking about night shift nursing staff either. In payroll alone in a group of 5 there have been 11 people that have left in the last 3 years. People leave managers not jobs! I am #12 and today is my last day. My co-worker #13 last day May 25, 2018. I have worked for 30 years and the payroll manager is the worst I have ever seen! Don't be surprised if the rest of payroll quits soon because of the manager. We all love what Brooks does as a company, but Corporate is the backbone of everything else. I've also heard bad things about IT and HR management. Get the right people in the right positions and it will be a great company to work for!
The CEO and COO make, at least, annual on-site visits to have open dialogue with all staff through our Town Hall process. In addition, the SVP Hospital Administrator is available every 2 weeks to listen to and speak with staff in our unit embedded in Halifax Hospital. Recently, the Employee Engagement results were shared and acted upon.
Show your employees compassion by instituting beareavement time off.
I would check in on the Daytona location more then once a year for your town hall meeting and realize that there is a huge problem with the management after loosing so many staff members. It is crazy that after all of the human capital you have lost and onboarding costs to orient these employees you wouldn't make a change to the leadership. Most of the staff have quit or resigned due to Rebeca Nave and her incompetence and Judy Edmond lack of ability to operate in a leadership position. In addition a majority of the staff feel that there is unpresidented favoritism throught these units.
So if I were you Doug Bear, I would create more of a corporate presence and not just rely on Astrid to do it all for you, as she has not been able to curb the staffing crisis as of yet.
