    I worked at Baywood Court part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    When working here, you gain insight to how nurses work and the feel of working on a "floor" environment. Most employees are easy to talk to and are willing to help out at all times, especially when issue is concerning a patient. Environment is clean and well put together.

    Cons

    Most of the employees chat poorly about each other, some of the higher ranked managers aren't willing to help when pertaining to growth, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage goals to be set for employees (RNs, LVNs, CNAs, etc.) to be met each quarter. Encourage outside training or other activities that will help those who wish to grow in the nursing environment do so. Encourage employees to branch out with each other to learn more about each other.

    Pros

    Payroll is usually timely and professional
    Good benefits
    Plenty of hours available (see why under 'Cons')

    Cons

    Understaffing is an everyday occurrence
    Administrative Director frequently tries to exercise authority and talks down to employees
    Extremely high turnover of staff
    Rarely (and by 'rarely' I mean never) told of the good job we do
    However, always reminded of where we've failed and criticized daily

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use your authority to encourage your employees, not belittle them and threaten them with suspension/termination every other week. In the time I worked at your facility, you lost a ton of great employees due to your stubbornness to staff the right amount of nurses. Instead you decided to keep admitting patients to increase revenue while patient-care was suffering due to unrealistic expectations for the conditions in which we worked. The initial DON, who built this place up from the ground-up, was pressured into leaving by administration. Two interim DON's later and a new-grad DON later and the place looked like it was ready to be shut own by the state because of its inability to contain the Rotavirus as well as staff enough employees to give good patient care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please reward hardworking individuals with raises that are more than nominal and listen when employees file grievances. This will lead to cohesion between supervisors/management and employees.
