    The hospital itself is very nice, however, the management was hard to work for.

    Pros

    The people I worked with were great.

    Cons

    Management put me in positions where I had to choose whether or not to compromise my integrity.

    Advice to Management

    Do not lie to your employees.

    I worked at Communicare Health Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Taking care of the residents and the appreciations you received for your hard work.

    Cons

    The coworkers were lazy and rude, management doesn't care about their employees, and if you resigned or was terminated in one of their facilities, don't bother applying to another facility owned by them because they don't want you, period.

    Advice to Management

    When their is a problem between coworkers, listen to both sides instead of firing the one who hasn't been their longer than the other. Also, if someone doesn't work for one of your facilities anymore because they were terminated or resigned, give them another chance if they apply to another facility that you own and let them prove to you how hard-working they are.

    Pros

    staffing was increased which is always a good thing but they cut the staff when census changes

    Cons

    rules apply only to those management wants them to apply to. Regional staff state they want to treat everyone with respect and not "crucify" people for making a mistake yet they don't tell the employees where they stand and they talk out of both sides of their mouth.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good strong look at the regional teams and make sure they are fair and consistent with facility staff. Listen to the facility staff and recognize that your reputation is a result of the poor decisions made my management. respect those that have worked hard for your company and if someone does something wrong, have enough respect for them to actually tell them what they did wrong so they have an opportunity to correct the mistake as opposed to asking good staff to leave without even knowing why they are asked to leave. Take accountability for the decisions you make as regional and corporate staff as opposed to having others pay the price

    I worked at Communicare Health Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    good benefits, immediate supervisor knowledgeable, some corporate employees were assets and helpful, able to work fairly indepently with some latitudes in objectives and goals. Able to change protocols and assess issues to be dealt with in timely manner.

    Cons

    office culture was weird , too many "bosses" wanting to many priorities jobs done, insufficient resources to do th job well.

    Looks nice on the outside until you work on the inside. Be careful if you want to keep your licensure.

    I worked at Communicare Health Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with the residents (if you can make any time for it after being overwhelmed with responsibilities). Salary is reasonable. Paid holidays off.

    Cons

    No room for promotions, incentives, or bonuses. Management team is not cohesive (i.e. power struggles), profit-driven vs. client centered, unethical practices, understaffed, poor resident care.

    Advice to Management

    Praise your workers when they do well. Don't focus so much on criticizing and demeaning them. Make them feel like they are appreciated and you will get better results. Make sure your 90-day reviews are accurate and not on hear-say. Allow your whole team to participate in decision-making and allow them to speak their professional ideas and opinions. Give incentives. Hire more STNA's and Nurses, and make sure you have properly trained and certified staff for your locked Mental Health and Alzheimer's/Dementia units. Care for your residents, not just your pocket book.

    Pros

    You have the opprotunity to impact the lives of others daily.

    Cons

    There is a huge disconnect between the corporate office and field employees. It seems as if its all about the all mighty dollar. Sad.

    Advice to Management

    Re-connect!

    Pros

    Pay and benefits and never down time

    Cons

    As the supervisor you are the only go to nurse in the two facilities and you have your own floor to work if not two due to a call off. There is no consideration for issues that arise in many people's lives like a family member being hospitalized, you still get points for absence even with documentation. Snow storms do not get consideration.

    Pros

    It is a very clean nursing home.

    Cons

    The resident to nurse ratio is way too high. The demands that are placed on nurses are not realistic. We work eight hour shifts and are expected to complete a 12 hour workload plus take a 30 minute break and get out on time. Many of the STNA's are disrespectful and have low work ethics.

    Advice to Management

    Higher more nurses! There should be 6 nurses on 1st and 2nd shifts. On one side there are 76 resident and only two nurses. The residents have dementia and require extensive care. On the afternoon shift families visit and call, physicians write orders and there are two heavy med passes. Residents have behaviors and fall. This requires extra nursing care and reports to be filled out. Departments have been eliminated and the work falls to the nurses. How can you expect your nurses to take a break and get out on time AND deliver quality care with this workload? I have heard several poor reviews from people in the community about this nursing home from those who have removed their loved ones and placed them in another facility.
