I worked there for 4 years and in the 4 years their was 4 different DON's. The administrator is a witch. No kind of loyalty in that place. They use you up and spit you out!! The staff other then those 2 are great. The pay sucks and we barely got a raise. In that place the family members are in charge. If you want to be treated like a slave then that's the place for you.

Short staffed new grads get 4 days orientation unsafe working environment tooooo many changes in administration. Current ad.inistration is worst ever. Nonsupportive, demeaning toward staff, morale is at rock bottom. Guess corporate doesnt care either.
Plan of care is professional and directly linked to patient needs. It is important also to include all shifts in plan of care.
x 134 Tonya Walker Nurse staffing (Former Employee) – Maywood, NJ – May 10, 2013
My start of the day after change of report and initial assessment of residents begins with my residents who are always on top of events on the unit. They are ready to meet, greet and let you know how their day went whether happy or sad. I promise I will give them a lending ear after I collect information to structure my shift and their care. You are always trying to manage medication pass with meals Insulin coverage, phone call demands for patient care to outside sources and/or family,staff needs for assistance, required documentation, observe residents continually and behavior monitoring. I have learned that sometimes I need to re-evaluate my time management based on needs of each resident's critical condition and not emotion of residents behavior with safety as always part of the measure while protecting my residents and our license. I learned to be the Nurse in charge at all times and delegate to the staff as required of their job whether it is the CNA, house keeping, engineering etc.accordingly. I have been exposed to learning how to use different feeding pumps, GT pumps, Inhalation/Oxygen set ups and skin care treatment regimen. I have learned to realize my strengths and weaknesses when addressing concerns for plan of care and management. .I've learned when to step back and hand off to the appropriate person in command when it is required on behalf of the facility and issue at hand. Co-workers and management usually are putting or have placed things to have continuity in care ongoing and communication is vital Our staff being familiar with one another personality'smore... can sometimes see where to chime in with the help on the unit. It is nice to see when management may have heard staffs concerns and you can see it. The hardest part of my job is when we are short staffed with CNAS, unfamiliar faces to residents which may cause non-compliance and they need reassurance, meds not on hand, mis- communication among est staff which at times lead to indirectly not meeting the needs of the unit, The hardest part of the job is when my patients health is failing and my energy lessens because I can't seem to make a difference while yet focused on the plan of care for all. When over- time seems to be a part of not being enough hours in the day to feel you have done a satisfactory job regarding the residents. The most enjoyable part is my residents engaging with the staff and being their usual self which identifies them as that individual!. Residents returning from the hospital in better shape then when they left. A smile, moment of a thank you, a nod from family, co-workers or management for pulling it together for the team. Also allowing a patient to pass on with dignity and as they wanted. less
