Beware of your Managing Directors. Beware of your resources. They’re toxic. You assumed a group of companies that allegedly weren’t being managed right but the way the AL’s are being run now is a tradgedy. It’s only a matter of time before a resident gets hurt. Especially in your largest AL where things are spiraling out of control due to an uncaring inexperienced ED and managing director that talks more than he gets anything done. You have closed door management until it’s time for a smoke break then the entire management team can be found puffing it up. Awesome professionalism. Fix it. You promised you would when you took over.

Hire ED’s with experience! Walk the talk. Actually put your so called values in place. Set communities up with the proper tools to succeed. keep a better eye on your regional directors regional sales teams and who they are hiring to run your communities. Visit the Rochester communities before it’s too late.

Hire people that know how to staff appropriately and safely. Hire on call staff for coverage when you have call offs and no shows. Put all cna’s, lpn’s and RNs o/c for shifts/ for patients and overwhelmed staff.

Come visit watermark communities and get better management who actually care for the staff and residents who listen and make a real difference. Don’t just bring in residents who are not acceptable for the community. Bring in better care staff along with nursing staff. Don’t let staff do other positions who are not qualified for that position in facility. Give raises to hard working staff and recognize the good employees who go above and beyond there job duties and get more help so we can work less stressed please.

Your communities might meet their financial planning goals if you could be bothered to pay attention, or a at the very least not doze off during budget meetings. The disengagement of the CEO from his own company is baffling.

Listen to the employees at each community instead of taking the word of regionals. You may not be getting the full picture.
