    Pros

    If you start here as an RN, can follow directions, have half a brain, and show yourself to be a hard worker, you will be given the opportunity for additional responsibilities and one promotion after another. There are very good bosses here, and even the difficult ones challenge and stretch you into growth by learning. The promotions teach you more and more, and keeping a willingness to learn benefits your chances the most.

    Cons

    Because the CNAs are in a union (as more and more places are), the union forbids writing up CNAs who call in more than 4 hours before their shift & forces bad CNAs to be rehired after their fired. Also once in management, it is too difficult for me to keep regular enough hours to keep a work/life balance and will move on from long term care to a hospital for the better benefits.

  2. Not a good place to work at. CNAS are under paid and under staffed. Sometimes there are 3 CNAS for 150 patients

    Pros

    There are not any pros to work at this place unless you are tight for money and absolutely have to work because i would not want my name associated with a plate that does not follow the law and treats patients and employees so poorly.

    Cons

    No benefits whatsoever. Insurance is just as bad as if you buy it on your own. No night shift differential. Every single rule is to benefit the Employer

    Advice to Management

    Take your job seriously and get out of your office and monitor your staff to do their job. Patients should be treated with respect and not yelled at.b Give better pay to employes sou you actually get staff that will do their job and stay there for a while

  3. Unorganized

    Pros

    Taking care of people who appreciate it. Staff who work together and get the job done. Food in the café

    Cons

    They need more staffing that cares about the patients. Better health insurance, needs friendly nursing staff.
