Leadership Management in Nursing

Case Study:

Carrie is an associate degree prepared nurse who is orienting to her responsibilities as a charge nurse at a skilled nursing facility. After only 10 days on the job, she is appalled by the interactions she observes between the nursing supervisor and several of the charge nurses and LPN’s and nurses’ aides. It’s not uncommon for an aide to be reamed out publicly in the hall for not having all her residents into the dining hall on time or some other transgression. Additionally, the nursing leadership frequently gossip and complain about staff they have to work with. Having worked as an aide in a nursing home several summers Carrie knows that staff workloads are heavy, and a little bit of encouragement can go a long way in lightning the load. She can see how the sniping and put downs coming from leadership affect morale. Ironically nursing leadership has high expectations that all frontline caregivers will demonstrate great compassion and respect for residents of the facility and their families. Remember residents are our number one priority is their motto. She is surprised that leadership does not understand that you cannot give what you do not have period if staff do not experience compassion and respect, it is difficult to dish it out day in and day out shift by shift. She is wondering if she should accept the challenge of remaining in this job.
