Mixed feelings.

Licensed Practical Nurse Charge (Former Employee)
West Reading, PA

I worked at Extendicare full-time for more than a year

ProsThere are some truly wonderful teamplayers in all departments.

ConsOne or two of the Management members are out of touch. CNA work load was excessive and though I didn't work overnite I think expectations were unrealistic.

Advice to Senior ManagementStaff more than one CNA to the floor on overnite when there are 30 patients. Hire nursing management who have done the job. Do an annual competency check to ensure that the staff knows their jobs. On one occasion one of the CNAs came to me with blood pressures far above normal limits for all of their assignment then explained that she had not really taken them because she can't hear through a stethescope. The pay is good but you will really ezrn your check and then some!

it's a job

Cna (Current Employee)

I have been working at Extendicare

Prosyou can often get extra hours, if you want them
some of the people are nice to work with
some of the residents are very sweet, and appreciate the care that you give
benefits are available

Consyou may get extra hours even if you don't want them, and work a lot of weekends...or you may be sent home early to save hours.
some of the people are not nice to work with, especially to someone who is new, and have been so mean to some new people that they quit rather than tolerate the abuse
sometimes there are not enough materials to work with-no clean washcloths, no soap or shampoo available to wash residents with, hair dryer has gone missing, etc.
doesn't pay very well compared to some other nursing facilities

Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest about the salary offered for the position-no one likes to be told that they will be employed at a certain rate, only to find out later that they will be making far less
Stop tolerating bullying of new employees by certain members of existing staff, and you might reduce your employee turnover
Ensure that resident's needs are adequately supplied-it' hard to clean and dry someone withou the proper supplies
