Welcome to Long Term Care! I have worked in camp settings and now with LTC for 3 years. Hang in there! It will come together since you administration is moving for Culture Change. It will indeed be a culture change for many! Try to set aside time weekly where you can help other departments and make it an activity such as: doing hair for residents as soon as they are ready in the morning. It will be a little TLC for the res and show nursing how activities can benefit them. Another "Camp" reminder is "pick up as you go". I go past soo much stuff on the floor - grab a glove, pop it on and scoop it up as you go past. It will be less Housekeeping has to do and keep floors clear/reduce falls.
Keep your smile on...let them wonder.
