    I have been working at HCR ManorCare

    Pros

    These are my personal views and do not necessarily reflect the views of my employer.

    I've experienced upper management rolling their sleeves up and working side by side with line staff!

    Cons

    It is a customer service field. As the adage says, "you can't please everyone all the time". But we sure try!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being visible and caring.

    Current Employee - Registered Nurse in South Ogden, UT

    I have been working at HCR ManorCare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Likely to hire you if you are just starting out in the medical field as a nursing assistant or physical therapist or dietitian
    - Would recommend for nurses that had a background as nursing assistant or patient care tech or medical assistant
    - Decent pay for everyone except the CNAs
    - The residents are always there to make sure the day is memorable

    Cons

    - Poor working environment for CNAs other than the work experience
    - Poor pay for CNAs
    - Maintenance of water boilers and other building equipment is less than desirable but adequate
    - Apparently upper management positions always need to be filled with people who are more concerned about patient "dignity" rather than their actual safety and wellbeing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - I would recommend filling CNA positions with more part-time and PRN and paying them a competitive wage (at least $12 an hour)
    - Have more PRN and part-time nurses positions available. Commit these people to be on-call at least one shift a week on the schedule which they are given, acknowledge, and commit to in a legally verifiable way.
    - Consider patients' safety, individual physical/mental health, disease management, and overall wellbeing before making decisions that are supposedly based on their "dignity." If you want to have a facility that is "restraint-free," do not accept patients that come with orders from the hospital for scheduled/prn haldol and high dose ativan/xanax. A HUGE STEP in this direction would be requiring A NURSE to be in charge of ADMISSIONS, not some marketing rep that does not understand patient care/drug effects/day-to-day operation of facility.

    I suppose it's like most SNFs; you're understaffed, overworked, and under trained.

    Pros

    Pay wasn't bad, especially for a SNF. Some co-workers were very supportive.

    "Throw you to the wolves" training program.

    I have been working at HCR ManorCare

    Pros

    Great patients who are generally appropriate for this level of rehab. Nice co-workers in rehab and other departments. Competitive pay.

    Cons

    Rehab professionals work very hard in a disorganized/confusing system while being micromanaged and bullied by management. Understaffed with high rehab staff turnover rate. Rehab staff are routinely scheduled to work through paid breaks. Building is currently being renovated and projected end result appears to be unfavorable for some aspects of resident life and the rehab department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your rehab professionals like professionals with respect, trust, communication and autonomy.

    Pros

    Co worker, geriatric population, teamwork to provide care as management is not going to assist

    Cons

    Zero appreciation. Unrealistic expectations. No cares for the persons running the building

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don are nurses too and should share floor responsibilities when in staffing crunches....and utilize MDS nurses as well. If they aren't handicap they should move from their computers every once in a while

    Pros

    If you are motivated, self starter that can add value to the company through operations, marketing or clinical skills.

    Cons

    Even though, woman represent a strong percentage of the work force, the Director level and higher are majority men that produce 1/2 as much as a female worker but get rewarded for bragging about their accomplishments.
