Registered Nurse who could not wait to leave
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – West Midlands – 17 December 2017
Hard work as often there was not enough staff.
Staff team on unit very clicky, this was not apparent in all the other teams in the home.
Line manager had favourites (and it showed), did not deal with issues, made excuses for certain staff, no compassion for staff team when necessary, very good at blaming wrong person when something was not right, good at belittling people and expecting staff to deal with issues themselves which were line management issues.
Deputy Manager and Home Manager compassionate and good at their role.
Hardest part of the job was lack of proper unit management and unfairness and favouritism on the unit.
Most enjoyable part of the job was the lovely residents and the majority of staff team.
Free lunch on long days, good training opportunities
Not enough staff, not much compassion for staff when needed
