    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

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

    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

    There is nothing good here.

    Cons

    The culture is terrible. Management comes out with a list of rules every week; all they wanna do is stand by and watch everyone burn. They have moved adult residents into the peds building because of money, which was detrimental to the residents' health and against their family's wishes. They treat their employees like children. If you do something good you get a piece of candy, if you make a mistake you get written up. Well it's hard not to make mistakes when you are given the work of three people and there's only one of you. If you call off you are yelled at for it. If you don't get your work done, you will be written up, but there is usually not enough time to get it done in eight hours. So you must work through lunch (off the clock-illegal); and oftentimes you must work after hours- again off the clock because OT is not allowed, but if you don't get it done you'll get in trouble. I once stayed on the clock an extra half hour to finish my work because other coworkers put me behind, and the next day I was forced to sign an adjustment sheet saying that I punched out on time. If I were paid for all the time I worked off the clock I would have a substantial savings account. Equipment in the kitchen is faulty and frequently catches on fire. Myself and several co-workers have been electrocuted. No one cares. They are so cheap they won't replace anything. A fridge in the kitchen went down last Christmas, still is not fixed. Probably never will be. All they care about is money, to the detriment of their employees and residents. If you are fortunate enough to get a raise the highest you can get is 2%. Not worth the paper it's printed on. Prison camp like conditions. Also you must work every weekend unless you request one off, and even then it's no guarantee. But management does whatever they want.

    Advice to Management

    Quit.
