    I worked at Extendicare full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Comforted to have had hard working CENAS. Work with the elderly is so personally rewarding. It was like I gained a bunch of grandparents.

    Cons

    Unless you have a PRN Xanax order, think twice. State is constantly in the building, management is constantly looking for someone else to blame for problems they may have been able to prevent if they bid to the beckoning of the overwhelmed floor staff. Constantly created more busy work to do that took away from the already slim time nurses have with the residents at their bedsides. Threats from management were a daily occurance. Consistency doesn't exist at Extendicare facilities. They love to hire new nurses but hate dealing with new nurse learning curves. They often admit residents that the facility is not equipt to handle, so the frustrated families often take their anger out on the floor staff. I wouldn't wish my year long nightmare on any other nurse, nor would I even consider recommending my worst enemy become a resident at an Extendicare facility. My favorite part of the job was discharging residents home so they were no longer in harms way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach. Simply answering call lights doesn't qualify as helping us out on the floor. When more than half of your assigned residents are dependant lifts and you have one CENA responsible for each hall, the nurse becomes a CENA in addition to their role as the nurse. I've been a CENA, I'm not afraid to get knee deep in a code brown with those CENAs who are overworked. Instead of looking for staff to blame, please look for staff to strengthen! Be proactive instead of reactive. "you need better prioritizing skills" should never come out of your mouth unless it's followed by here I am to teach you how.
