In this Manorcare location, if you've reached your 90 days on the job, you are already considered senior staff. Problem here is that the staffing ratios ( 30 to 1) are set up so that you will never, ever leave on time because of the volume of work, or leave at the end of your shift with your license hanging in the wind. Absolute chaos on all shifts and on all floors. Physically impossible med passes written by doctors who could never actually perform what they sign. There was one pateint there receiving over 50 meds per day. On top of that you could easily spend 8 hours just on the treatments and vital signs alone because just short of going to a pharmacy yourself to buy the supplies, you will be hunting for them in the building, spending more time to find them, than to complete the tasks. Their subacute unit receives ICU patients from across the street, yet this ratio of 20 to 1 basically guarantees loss of licensure. Not worth any amount of money. Start staffing your units according to volume of work, and you will keep staff.
this company will never learn
