Knowledge and Skill:
We seek a Facility Maintenance Director who

Duties and is willing and capable of learning and/or improving as needed. A
good candidate might be considered a “Jack of All Trades” – although probably
better at some aspects than others.
A Long Term Care nursing facility has several
departments that together deliver the care to the patients and their families.
The largest is Nursing which comprises about half the total staff. Other
departments are Dietary, Housekeeping, Laundry, Social Services, Activities,
and Maintenance with Administration having oversight over all. There are major
contractors like Therapy that are not employees but are in the building(s) much
of the time and are an important part of the whole operation and as such seem
like a department in a way.
Of course, all departments have to work together
toward a common goal and it is vital that the maintenance department does its
part. The leadership and cooperation of the maintenance assistant is an
essential part of that process. The maintenance assistant has the
responsibility of managing two or more other maintenance staff as well as to
coordinate various vendors or contractors. This takes a degree of interpersonal
skills while simultaneously keeping everyone working toward the same ultimate
Long-Term Care facilities are highly regulated by
various Federal, State, and local governments. Usually, these various entities
have their own areas of regulatory oversight but there is sometimes some
overlap. Fire codes as defined by NFPA (National Fire Protection Association)
and disaster preparedness are of major importance. Some of the rules and
regulations may seem to be mainly aimed at clinical issues but the maintenance
department still has a part to play in successful compliance.
