I worked at Evergreen Nursing & Rehabilitation full-time (more than an year)Pros
Easy hiring process. Unlimited double shifts/overtime. CNAs show excellent team work and very friendly (at times). CNAs are emotionally loving to their residents.Cons
Ever since the company was taken over by new ownership it has dropped way down. If they don't care about a business and its employees then why should the employees?
Firstly, it's disgusting and infection protocol is out the window.
Residents are left soiled for long periods of time. Wounds are left unattended and ignored until they're severely infected.
RN/LVN staff lack a professional level of attitude amongst each other and indefinitely with their CNA's.
I remember my first week working there at the start of my shift I got a write up because a CNA one shift prior to mine left a resident in a dirty urine filled bed. I was unlucky to find the mess and I do not believe she got a write up. I feel she was just angry at the situation and power hungry.
They are constantly yelling at CNAs in the halls regardless of who is nearby. It's very degrading and demeaning but they see it as letting all know who the alpha dog is.
The CNAs are left to free roam acting how they please.
If you don't smoke like they do. Drink and party like they do. Or socialize as they do. You are outcasted. I learned more about my coworker's personal lives more than I did my classmates in high school. Much like the RNs and LVNs they lacked a professional work attitude and would play while working. Resident care is a second priority to fun.
Upper management (DSDs/Staffing manager) encouraged working off the clock to prevent overtime they saw was unnecessary.
Unless you accepted a double shift you can not take over time to finish your charting. If you do, expect a warning and a write up then threats to be terminated. I've caught the management telling employees to clock out then return to their charting if they feel they will not leave on time. The ridiculous part? People listened! Reenforcement of this behavior is what led me to quit.
If I continued I could write a book on how terrible this place is. It's amazing how they pass the state exams every year as they do.Advice to ManagementAdvice
