Nurse Work From Home
Question by Tater: Nursing Home Administrator?
I am interested in perusing a job of a nursing home administrator. I wanted to know more about the job. Is there any other jobs in the same field that are similar that I can also look into? I want to be involved in more of the paperwork side of nursing. I am 17 now and will be going into my senior year of high school. What can I begin to do to prepare myself for a job in this area? What schooling do I need? And if someone could give me a job description or some personal insight I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks 🙂

A nursing home administrator needs to have many skills related to personnel management. He or she also needs deep knowledge of financial minutiae, to ensure the profitability and sustainability of a nursing home. Lastly, a nursing home administrator needs to know about medical and nursing matters that could come up in assisted living, and how to deal with such. With so many disparate tasks for one person, one can expect the requirements to be licensed as a nursing home administrator to be quite numerous.

Sufia, age 17, lives in the burn unit of the Dhaka Medical College. It has been her home for the last eight months and before that she lived in the district hospital of Narail, about 150 miles north of Dhaka, for five months. She has not known any other home since she was burned.
Here is the story of how she suffered her disabling burns. The rice harvest was done. The men bundled the paddy and threw it in a high heap in the middle of the courtyard. It is the women’s job to process the plants into edible grain – get the grains off the stems, dry it, husk it in the foot pedal and store it. In addition, all the routine cooking and housework of course had to be done. Sufia was at wits end about how to cope with her two sons – the 4-year old did not need much, but the two-month-old son wanted to be breastfed every two hours.
She had a heated quarrel with her 55-year-old husband and went to bed after dinner. As it was Ramadan, she’d have to get up at 3 AM to cook the meal that they would eat before sunrise; nothing to eat is allowed, not even water, during the day.
In the middle of the night, she woke up with a start to find someone sitting on her chest holding her mouth shut. It was her husband – his brother tied her both hands over her head, another brother tied her both feet together. They dragged her off the bed to the corner of the room, poured a cold fluid that smelled like kerosene that was used to fuel the lamps, set her on fire and fled.
Sufia could not scream since her mouth was tied with a piece of rag, and could not run with both feet tied together. But help came when neighbors saw the smoke and fire from the house and started to pour water to put it out. Then they discovered Sufia.
Neighbors hired a vehicle and took her to the nearest treatment facility; they would not take her. Then the neighbors took her to the district hospital and she stayed there for five months. She did not have anyone come visit her or look after her as her parents were dead, and the neighbors lost interest after some time. Only her maternal uncles would come once in a while, but they did not have money enough for her treatment. So she would be with out medicine most of the time, but there was a roof over her head and some food.
She needed a kind-hearted soul to feed her, as both her hands were just stumps. The few fingers that were left in her right arm were so stuck to her hand she could neither move or use them. So on days when she did not find someone willing to feed her, she’d go hungry.
Sometime in March, the kind-hearted doctors transferred her to the Dhaka Medical College Burn Unit. The facilities here were so much superior to those at the district hospital. Her open wounds started to heal, and after a surgery in September, she could stick a spoon between her fingers and feed herself. Now with the Interplast team in the city, she was selected as one of the lucky ones to have the hand surgery in which the team specializes.
One thing that Sufia wants most is to be able to use her hands, to find work, to be able to support herself, and maybe see her two sons again if she is lucky. She knows nothing about them. Her uncles told her that there was no police case against her husband and his relatives, and Sufia’s uncle did not have money to bribe the police to pursue the case.
Even if the hand surgery is a phenomenal success, she will probably have about two or three functioning fingers in the right hand only. All other fingers are gone. Sufia has no home to go back to, no relatives to take care of her and no one to help her with negotiating her way in the world outside her home. She was married at 10 years of age, has no experience outside her home, never been to a bank, a market or inside any office. She had virtually no education or any skills to enable her to earn a living. So the future is frightening and unknown.

She is a beautiful woman. Thank you for sharing such a heart renching story of "mans inhumanity to man" or in this case "womankind"!
I am surprised that there are not more comments.
I will pray that she finds work or a benefactor.
I was so upset when I first read of this a few months ago that I could not comment.
Id there anyway we can find out what has become of her and help her out financially?
Thanks for your concern about Sufia. We asked Dr. Shafquat Khundkar, our surgical outreach director in Dhaka, Bangladesh if he had any further information about her, and he said:
"Have not heard from her for quite a long time.She did come for follow-up for a few months but then has not reported to us since.I shall try to locate her and let you know the follow-up."
Interplast does not currently allow donations to be directed to any particular patient. However, your donation to Interplast will help cover the cost of an operation for one of the thousands of women and children around the world who suffer from similar burn injuries similar to Sufia’s.
Thank you for the update. If the doctor does find her please let me know.
I do realise that Sufia is only one of many but her story has really moved me.
I hadn’t even heard of Interplast before seeing your photos on Flickr. I plan to make regular donations to Interplast because I think it is such a good cause.
FRIGGIN’ INSANITY!!!!!!!! AAAAARGGHHH!!!!! WHY?!?!?!??!?!!!!!! sick… so sick… 🙁
Hate the monsters who would do such a thing, and even more a society that views such horrific crimes with a complete indifference. Oh well, she is just a woman, after all, right? These same people who claim to be oh-so-righteous (obeying Ramadan, after all) are the ones who commit these atrocities. Well, perhaps they are being good Muslims, after all: using violence and torture to show "lesser" beings their place; that’s what that twisted "culture" seems to be about. If hell exists, I hope these bastards burn in it (literally) forever.
I would like to point out that the neighbours that came to her aid were most likely Muslims and they did the right thing. There are good and bad people in all religions.
Some men are such animals. The ones that did this deserve a severe, severe beating.
