    Pros

    Interacting with geriatric patients, learning how to handle patients with little to no mobility, utilizing documentation skills, learning from the residents, time and a half when working holidays, Hands On, Responsibility.

    Cons

    Facility IS HOT, 2 ND Floor Holmgreen is out dated and is in desperate need of a new AC Unit, Lack of Staff, Not enough of a background check or personality test, Under Staffed over night OR OVER Staffed, No respect towards those with seniority, No assistance with patients considered "dead weight"

    Advice to Management

    DO thorough Personality Tests, Don't lie about what the job entails it's great experience for someone beginning in the medical field, DO prepare Care Assosciates with proper training techniques when it comes to: feces, blood or the inevitable deceased patient. More sample documents on how they are to be filled and laminated protocols. PLEASE FOCUS ON FIXING 2nd floor. DO not openly flirt with employees this does not grant very much respect.

    I have been working at Emeritus Senior Living part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The other nurses you work with are great!
    Able to get supplies quickly.

    Cons

    The charting system is very combersome.
    SN not paid for milage.
    Poor re-embursement for important tasks such as Dr calls, lengthy communication with patient families or extended wound care.
    SN not supplied with INR machines.

    Advice to Management

    Supply nurses with INR machines! This could make the company a lot of money.
    Pay nurses and therapists for all the miles driven, not just those over 40 miles.
    Present charting is strong in getting Dr orders and supplies but is not effecient in actual charting. Check into other charting systems and convert.
