A typical day at work is long hours with no breaks due to the facility running on severe staff shortages. You are not provided competent education on site which places staff and residents at risk. You must be experienced and have excellent clinical and assessment skills, as there is no support for new hires. There is a high turnover of management, very young and inexperienced with long-term care; not only lacking the skills and education to support staff, but have no real desire to do so. The employees are very hard-working, however frustrated with low morale, which leads to many walking of the job, and bullying. There is insidious racism toward indigenous and visible minority employees. The hardest part of the job is going home knowing that residents are not cared for properly. The most enjoyable part of the job is caring for the residents if you like working with the elderly. DO NOT WORK HERE.
Poor management, low morale
