I have been working at Supplemental Health Care

Pros

The only reason to work for Supplemental Health Care is for the pay incentive.

Cons

Their is never any shifts available and the benefit will not apply because you never get any work to participate in the benefit packages that are available after six months.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If the company is going to employ CNA's, RN's etc,. Then why the shifts are never.

    I have been working at Supplemental Health Care

    Pros

    Flexible hours/days
    slightly better pay than long-term staff (generally)
    Do not have to compete for vacation time
    can easily leave a facility that is not working for you

    Cons

    Get paid less than long-term staff at SNFs
    Every day, you are called because something bad is going on... WAY overbooked, sudden quit/fire, unexpected sick call, injury... often will see 4-7 evaluations in a day... never a "normal" clinic experience or "easy day"
    Often do not have a desk to use or a place to put your things
    Rarely get orientation >5 minutes, and if you do, get paid at least $5 less per hour of orientation.
    Undependable work load (feast or famine)
    Inconsistent hours (sometimes start at 6:30am, others finish at 8pm, sometimes both in a day)
    No paid time off - if you don't work, you don't get paid
    No assistance or coverage of JCAHO requirements (annual physical, TB tests, CPR recertification)
    Minimal milage reimbursement (only if driving >65 miles one-way and only if you ask specifically)
    Benefits ONLY if you average >32 hours/week for the month... so if you take 1 week (unpaid)vacation or it is slow, expect to be paying for the entirety of your benefits package this month
    If you're contracted for 32 hours/wk, you can depend on your paycheck, but only if you are available any day (including weekends). If you decline a single shift (even a Sunday 6am start), they do not have to pay for 32 hours that week.
    Poor efficiency of office and support staff (often told wrong hours, wrong days, wrong facilities; must call to ensure that fax printed weekly time sheet; frequent errors in pay - wrong rate, wrong hours)
    Support staff will not require (and don't know) appropriate work standards (lunches and breaks) from facilites contracted with (must fight for yourself to have federal labor laws observed)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating your skilled staff as if they matter and you would like to keep them. Increase your wages to compensate for every day walking into an undesirable situation and not having a work "home" or regular coworkers. Cover the little things (like CPR every 2 years and TB tests every year). Offer bonusses or shift differential to non-nursing staff that work late hours (nurses, I assume already get it). Reward employees who receive positive reviews or get request by name for future shifts... they are the reason that you have customers at all.

    I have been working at Supplemental Health Care

    Pros

    The recruiters are very nice and understanding, and easy to work with. TIme off is always, so far, workable to date.

    Cons

    As of now, there seems to be less work, as I am told, in the city I am working in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to receive better truthful information and communication. The recruiters are very easy to get in touch with.
