At one nursing home, management decisions created a domino effect.
Nurses do very valuable work every day to keep their patients healthy and cared for. Doctors get a lot of the credit, but nurses help patients just as much. Shifts are usually at least 12 hours, but if you’re working with great people who also care about their patients and the staff members, time will fly by.
This nurse, u/Tinawebmom, writes that she really enjoyed working at one facility. She writes that the staffers were so close with their patients that they’d make time to eat lunch with them. This was thanks to the management at the time, who were easily-approachable bosses. However, their board decided it was time to hire an outside management company to save a few dollars. That’s often a sign for employees to run the other way as fast as possible. These management companies might save money, but they don’t care how ruthless they have to be to achieve their goals. A lot of their decisions only make sense in the most short-term ways. How will you run a nursing home without staff? Would this plan work for longer than like, a week? It’s pretty baffling, and it’s a shame that the OP had to go through such a bad experience.
