Suggestions for improvement
Hire an admissions nurse. Way too much to put on second shift nurse to do without help.
If you don't work first shift you get very little support. The culture was just okay, a little cliquish on day shift but if those things don't bother you it's not bad.
Monthly all staff meetings keep everyone on the same page.
Depends on who you are working with. A few other nurses were great with teamwork, but mostly people are out for themselves.
Seemed to be a lot of (repeated) call offs especially for the night shift so there was always an opportunity to pick up more hours. They weren't mean if you couldn't come in but you had to stay over until a replacement was found. It was the LPNs job to call and find a replacement for the nursing assistants and LPNs.
Support from management
If you are having an actual problem, the supervisor will listen and try to offer suggestions. Never had anything over the top come up but I think they would be there to back the nursing staff the best they can.
Freedom to work independently
Not even on their radar.
Inclusive / Diverse
Seems to be a factor of where the facility is located. Not much diversity in the area in general.
Office / Work Environment
Can be extremely stressful but the residents are what made the job worth it.
Housekeeping was amazing here, maint. department was quick to fix anything that needed to be fixed especially if it raised a safety concern.
Little on going training, no CEUs offered.
