Personal Support Worker in Long Term Care (Former Employee) – Englehart Ontario – 31 March 2018
I began working here with high expectations of trying to provide the best personal care for individuals in this nursing home. After about a month I realized that the organization does not assist it's staff or the seniors by insuring there is adequate staffing at all times . Working in this environment with no air conditioning the temperatures reached very uncomfortable conditions in the summer and the staff were at most times physically ill from heat exhaustion. Most individuals in our care were in frail condition or suffered dementia /mental health with aggressive disorders in which many staff did not receive either adequate training or support to handle the situations at hand as they were working short staffed.
couldn't think of any.
short staffing on most shifts; lack of management support.
