I worked direct patient care as a Nursing Care Partner (basically a Nurses Aide with more training and responsibilities)

Nursing Care Partner (Former Employee) Norfolk, VA

ProsExcellent benefits: has a 403b plan versus a 401k, so you can put away about 3x more for retirement; healthcare plan is better than many of the other employers in the area.

ConsDirect patient care works on a "grid system" X# of patients requires Y# of Care Partners and Nurses, unfortunately, whoever came up with this system obviously never worked as a patient care provider because the ratio of patients to providers is too high for safe patient care.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire more NCP's and Nurses, especially LPN's (an LPN gives the same level of care [except for supervisory functions] for a lower cost than an RN).

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
