Implemented much needed morale building programs such as B-Safe Bingo, Employee of the Month, and annual well-organized Christmas Parties

Was able to convince previous DON (who spent 25 years with previous company) to come help me; of which I believe shows both loyalty and leadership values I possess

Day before I was to officially take over Desert Springs (68 bed facility in Indio, CA) CDPH would have issued 2 IJ’s had I not accomplished what they required before leaving that day; however, building was decertified, and we worked hard to have that lifted on first revisit

I continue to work well with CDPH and have earned their trust as an administrator in Riverside county

Won the resident “Make-a-Wish” reward during Christmas the past 2 years by submitting the chosen wish

Implemented morale building programs such as B-Safe Bingo, Employee of the Month, and annual well-organized Christmas Parties

I have built good relationships with licensing personnel, including the Director and Supervisor

Effectively managed staffing, costs, case management, and morale, going from 30-40 admission/discharges a month to over 100/month

We have one of the, if not the, lowest hospital readmission rates in the desert

Established loyalty and respect from staff, most of which, have been at PSHC for more than 10 years, with several surpassing 20 years

Was persistent in getting corporate to enclose facility for patient safety and other compliance issues

Am proud to say that I have heard from a number of staff, resident’s, and resident’s family members things like: “I have never had an administrator say hi to me” or “we have never had an administrator work the hours you work” or “you are the most down-to-earth, genuine, understanding, and accommodating administrator we have ever had” and “we have never had an administrator as involved with the staff, resident’s, and resident’s families as you”
