I am an STNA I applied for assisted living and on my first day of orientation I was shown a video pertaining to memory care, when I questioned this I was told everyone is shown the video even maintenance? On my second day I worked the floor and noticed a few residents that are not assisted living candidates and they required more care, when I questioned this I was told that's how the facility is runned? On my third day I was told I would be working the memory care unit, when I stated again I am not comfortable working a unit that I am not certified for nor properly trained for I was told that assisted living and memory care are considered the same unit?? No they are not the same. Assisted living offers a housing alternative for residents who may need help (assistance)with dressing, bathing, eating, and toileting, but do not require the intensive medical and nursing care provided in nursing homes or memory care units. Although assisted living communities may have memory care units on the premises, the two types of care are not the same. Memory care is a distinct form of long-term skilled nursing that specifically caters to patients with Alzheimer's disease, dementia and other types of memory problems. Nurses must have a 4 year college degree or LPN or RN, at minimum 3 years experience in health care, 1 year experience direct supervision of a dementia unit. You must be certified or licensed in a health care profession. so although I am a STNA I am not certified nor have I worked in memory support so forcing someone to work in a field they are not skilled to work in is not conducive to the residents needs. I spoke to the manager of my concerns and I was told if I did not work that unit my orientation will stop meaning I'll be terminated when I refused to work in that unit I was terminated and now the pay that I should receive for my time there will be minimum wage because according to them I quit which again is false per the managers statement.
