  1. Love this sample CP -- It is hard to write "I" &/or "me" --when you have been writing Resident will.... ---- The only thing the new CP process is having to be so detailed especially if your facility is large say 130+ residents to attend to -- you are bound to mess up & some residents may slip through the cracks (get over looked)-- Example: Your CP says resident will be infored of food related activites, when new books arrive etc. -- Say I have also CP'ed 20 others for this & still have a entire facility to deal with as far as getting them to & from activites, so MR. B may get lost in the process --The State comes in & discovers that what is CP'ed for MR. B was not done everytime we had a food related activity -- does this make any sense? I know you aren't the person who made the changes but you are the person helping us with understanding the process, just wondering if there is another way to write them without being so detailed???

  10. Hey Diana.. Remember there is always tomarrow.. your hire could have been way worse.. at least it was over quickly compared to some that you dont find out how incapable they are till months later. A good rule of thumb that always worked for me is... I always hired the Assistant that was incredibly busy in her life .. I always asked the questions that let me know that this person had so much going on that she could barely get any sleep... my dad always told me to always ask a busy person to help.. because they didnt get so busy by saying "NO".. and an person that never says no is the type of person that always made the best Assistant... try posting your job in the Job board.. it on the top menu.. some of the jobs are getting plenty of views.. www.activitydrector.net/jobs thanks.. Pennie ad out )
