I organize my week by department. On Monday I always focus on the nursing department, which includes reviewing forgotten files, meeting with the Director, and putting my brain on paper for that department. Other things come up, but this weekly focus has kept me more evenly grounded between disciplines. It also helps me step away from projects and avoiding burnout; time management technique if you will. I am going to begin posting here in a similar fashion:
Monday: Improving Your Clinical Skills
Tuesday: Human Resources
Thursday: New Administrators
Friday: Ancillary Departments
Saturday: Industry NewsI hope that "One Nursing Home Administrator's Take On the Industry" will benefit from this approach by giving me more time to consider the topics I post on and lend direction to the choices. Many of the searchers on this site are people interested in becoming a Nursing Home Administrator, so I will include a weekly advice column for them.
Have a great week.
