    I have been working at HCR ManorCare full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I really like some of my coworkers and most of the patients there. It has a homey feel to it. The activities workers and physical therapy staff are great!

    Cons

    The nurses seem to be responsible for everything. As a nurse you can be answering phones, admitting new patients, caring for 20-26 patients and because we are almost always short Nursing Assistants, we do some of the duties they are hired to do too. Nurses hardly ever get their breaks here. This is not really a safe situation for patients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should put out the extra money to have an extra nurse as a team leader who can help out the nurses and do admissions when needed. It is not safe for our patients as it is now.

    Pros

    Wonderful co workers who dedicate so much time to the patients. Team effort amongst coworkers.

    Cons

    Poorly trained DOR. Organizational paperwork comes before all, including pts. V. Poor raises. Embarrassing 1-2%. High turnover between OT, PT and ST.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't cut nursing, CNA and therapy hours ; look at middle management and see that you don't need 4 nursing managers to get the same poor results.

    Pros

    The pay is ok for someone who just got their cna license.

    Cons

    There are too many clicks. New people get treated poorly and the upper management does not seem to care for the lower workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach the older employees to show respect to the new ones.

    Pros

    Loved my patients. Fast paced environment.

    Cons

    Hope you like working by yourself because you WILL NOT receive help from anyone on the staff. Favoritism is key and getting in with the smoking crew to get a decent shift. You get roped in with a fast hiring process only to realize that you wont receive a pay raise FOR 15 MONTHS and even after that it will only be a 0.12% increase yearly...HA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They wont listen anyways.
