I used to work here. Never did have the best management. Nurses get blamed for everything, no morale, always in fear of losing your job, etc. Have not worked under the new DON as DON but did when she was an RN supervisor. I would have thought she would be good in this position, but according to my friends who still work here, she doesn't do much. She does have the capability to put a stop to this LPN getting away with what he gets away with, but for whatever reason she allows it to continue. I agree with cnalpnrn, she needs to do something.

Hmmmm...I wonder what his super religious, super conservative parents think of him screwing his married boss and stealing patches? Yes he is an "adult," but he's really still a mama's boy.

Isn't there someone above this DON, or does she run the whole joint?

I believe it is called the administrator.

Neither the administrator or DON will do anything about it. They don't do anything about any of the problems there which is why there is such a huge issue! Now, they say they want to change the place and make it better. Yet, they keep worthless employees. I say start an overhaul with the staff. Too many complaints, write ups, or issues and your out I don't care who you are, who your related to, or what your excuse is. If you don't provide quality care get the hell out! Of course, that would terminate about 85% of the employees (including administrations!)

That's a shame, fire all those people...would there be a pool of people in town that could fill in the empty positions? Is it a double sword, that allows employees to do as they please because there's no one to fill their position? I guess a little sex in the back room at work makes it all worth it to keep the employees happy. Well some of them.

I would like to know what happened to the mandated trainings that were needed to work on A wing. I do believe there were only two training sessions held. The first was done by an outside source and lasted 8 hours. The second was done by Mt. Laurel staff and was condensed to 4 hours. Supposedly, you needed this training in order to work on A wing according to the state. However, I am sure that there are people working there that had not recieved the training. What about the latest group from the CNA class? At the time of the incident staff was told that everyone, even if they did not regularly work on A wing would have to go to the training but I don't think many went. So now that state isn't down their throats about the issue they gave up the trainings? Even so the CNA that caused all the trouble by not wiping correctly and allowing someone to lay in feces while she went to break had been reported before for being rough and all the things state caught her doing. Why was more training not given? She worked there for a year! Results of that wonderful CNA class!!
I have read this forum and I can say that there is a lot of truth to what is being said. However, there is some false information and some that is only partially accurate. It will not change though. The best thing you can do is not send your family there if you believe what is being said in this forum. If you do send your family there take proactive steps so that they can receive good care (that does not mean bitching at nurses and CNAs as it has been pointed out a lot of the problem stems from administration). And, if you work there and are unhappy then find a new job.

Yes, it is the administrator. However, she does not handle any issues either. Go to corporate? LMFAO....they don't do anything either. They only care about filling the beds.

You must have alot of time on your hands to bring up this old post. This is a nice place to work and you should probaly do your research somewhere other than Topix.

Why would you ask such a question unless you were in trouble for something? I think a bit more info is needed if you want some advice or answers.

I tried to get in there to take the CNA training and when I met with the DON, she made it very clear that she does not like my piercings. All I have is my ears pierced 3 times and had tiny studs in! Didn't even ask me if I would be willing to take them out if need be, which I would of if she asked. I understand first impressions say a lot, but I was also dressed very nice and presentable. Guess not in her eyes, which is a shame because I have always wanted to get into medical.

People if you think that nursing home conditions are bad now wait until 78 million post WW2 baby boomers start pouring into those places. The entire system will be completely overwhelmed and the issue of doctor assisted suicide will by that time be not only a settled matter but it will be a practice that will be welcomed and embraced
