Start at handover from the nurse of the previous shift. Responsible for medication rounds including insulin for Diabetics, IM and Subcutaneous injections as needed and wound care as required, Monitor and report to RN and GM as required. The hardest part of the job was keeping to a time schedule e.g. if there was an incident such as a fall or illness that need to be dealt with.
Meeting new people, making a difference, meaningful career
Frustrating at times, long hours, can be stressful as you carry a lot of responsibility
PCW (Former Employee) – Altona North VIC – 12 May 2019
Bullying, toxic work environment. Lack of support, orientation or training with existing staff showing open resentment towards working with new staff, regardless of their experience, training or competence. Blatant exclusion & isolation based on ethnic groups & identities. Disturbing lack of empathy towards residents who were often belittled & dehumanized when asking for help with everyday needs. Haphazard & unsafe manual handling practices together with a cut & paste manner of completing progress notes to make it appear care plans were being followed. The facility was consistently understaffed with care staff complaing they were "too busy" to take residents to the toilet or residents being left in wet beds until staff change over, and if complaints were made it was dismissed as being just their "behaviour". Many of the staff were just going through the motions & showed very little care or concern for residents.
Free parking & some very competant caring staff but those would number less than 40%
High and unrealistic expectations from management!
RN Div 1 (Former Employee) – Clifton Hill VIC – 15 February 2019
Clifton hill: 10 stories nursing home with new model of care. Environment is nice. Modern technology. However, the workload is toooo heavy for nurses. PCAs administer medications. Medications are in resident’s own room. Nurses are still required to manage all floors’ non packed medications as PCAs are not trained to give loose pack meds. Low nursing staff ratio. You just work like a dog with no appreciation from management. They pick on your little mistakes and make big dramas. They will sack you at anytime. STAY AWAY FROM CLIFTON VIEWS!
