Uncertainty

Thursday, February 13, 2014

Well, the state is currently at my place of employment investigating the residential facility to determine if they are unlawfully secluding clients. The secretary for the place is convinced that they are going to be shut down because of improper paperwork. She says the files are missing key components. She was almost in tears this morning because she couldn't get help from anyone to take care of the paperwork. Everyone is supposed to be adding their paperwork to the files. Instead, they place it on her desk for her to file away. She is overburdened and burned out. They have decreased her hours in the last 6 months and increased her responsibilities. The new supervisor will not do anything within his power or responsibility to help her. He expects her to do everything.

If the residential facility shuts down, I will still have my job. I am employed by the school district, not the residential facility. However, I will have to bump another teacher in order to have a job. I really hope the facility is not shut down. This is not the way I wanted to get another job. Granted, this alarm is just the speculation of one person. I do not know what is going to happen. But, I know the State is combing through every record and every file that the residential facility has. They will be looking at restraint forms and paperwork for when clients are placed on observation. They will be looking to see if staff are blocking doors to prevent clients from leaving a specific, designated area. They will be looking at individual behavior plans to deal with unwanted and unhealthy behaviors as well. This could be a long investigation. They started about 10:00 this morning.

That was the same time that I had my second IEP meeting this week. This meeting went really well. It is the last IEP meeting I have to do until either I get a new client with an outdated or due IEP or May, when my last IEP is due.

    Unfortunately sometimes things need to be shaken up before they can get better. I pray that it will come out God's will in the end.

  Bekah, Sounds like a very stressful situation there. That poor woman who is getting dumped on! That's so unfair. I hope she will be okay. It seems the one lowest on the scale gets the brunt of everything. I hope you will be okay with your job. It could be a good thing in the end. Just kind of stressful going through. We are praying for you. Keep us all posted. Eileen

    I once worked with a DR who passed all paperwork on for others except his own personal toilet paper job! lol that was the joke of the hospital staff! I am praying for the poor secretary. They seem to get stuck with the 'stuff' no one wants to do, as a rule.
Praying most of all for you! I know God has it all worked out, Bekah. Glad the meeting went well for you! della
