Loving environment for geriatric care
LPN (Current Employee) – Cumming, GA – March 21, 2014
The residents are cherished at CNR. Without them work really wouldn't be as easy to wake up to 5 days a week. A typical day is very busy, breaks are near impossible and the workload is heavy, with 30+ people per nurse. It's a great environment to sharpen your clinical skills but most of which is not overseen. Having said that, the management dynamic has changed very much in the past year. Unit managers are rarely seen. The director isn't much of a "get your hands dirty" type person. The nurses for the most part all help one another and are around for advice. The hardest part of my job is giving everyone my full attention. As I mentioned, the amount of residents combined with the LARGE med pass and daily
emergencies make it difficult to practice holistic nursing.
