A study from CareerBuilder finds that nearly all nursing professionals (93 percent) are satisfied with being a nurse and 85 percent are unlikely to ever switch careers. Four of the top ten drivers where staff would recommend their own facility are directly correlated to effective supervision and management.
Recently, an 83-year-old assisted living resident allegedly was assaulted by a security guard at the Florida facility and subsequently died from his injuries. The suspect had passed a background check and drug test when he was hired by Atria at Evergreen Woods in Brooksville. The suspect allegedly beat two residents; one died. We can't tolerate this behavior and must toughen our procedures when hiring.
