    I worked at PruittHealth full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The patients. Some of the co-workers.

    Cons

    The workload - I've worked all shifts. First shift or second shift I would get 12-18 patients; on a third shift I would get from 22 - 35 patients... I worked a long term care floor, so many of the patients were completely dependent. While the facility claims they are a "no lift" facility - the hoyer lift availability was a joke (2 for 48 patients; IF they weren't in need of maintenance?). Not only that, when you have 15 patients to get up, wash up, feed, change - within an 8 hour period - hooking up a patient to a hoyer takes away valuable time. Overall the patient/CNA ratio is not only dangerous for everyone, but frankly - illegal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hope you seriously consider improving your patient to staff ratio. For the amount you charge the patients per month (some of them have told me), it's a crime you don't have a better plan. The only reason I'm rating the company 3 stars instead of 1 is because the pay is competitive for the area and because I love the patients (which you really have nothing to do with).

    I have been working at PruittHealth full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Our team of RN's, LPN,s and CNA's are absolutely the best. Very team oriented, PCC, OC, and TA are great. Office staff/management is exceptional in what they do, back up field personnel, work hard with staff, and are there when you need them.

    Cons

    Corporate is disconnected from work force, no overtime allowed and director gets an earful if OT does happen. To many patients to staff in a day, especially with the distances many RN's, LPN,s, OT, PT, and CNA,s have to drive. Awarded raises that are later reneged on, to much computer time without getting payed for work done at home. Most workers are on their computers 7 days a week due to load, no boundaries for work and off work time. Expect workers to open computers any time they are called. To much Pruitt U and tenets are a TOTAL waste of time. Only reason I stay is patients and team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some advice from your field workers and quit being so cocooned up inside your little corporate bubble. Mr. Pruitt is either totally blind or a non-caring narcissist.

    I have been working at PruittHealth as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    -The same facility administration for almost two decades. Our managers care about their employees and clients...this facility has retained many of its same staff for years; more like a family.
    -Clients receive quality care!

    Cons

    The building is over thirty years old and terribly outdated!! Requests to update are denied while newer buildings are built, which makes attracting new clients difficult at times, thus causing lost opportunities to generate revenue. Company has began removing benefits such as short-term disability and option to cash in PTO time.

    Pros

    Some wonderful caring people that I work with despite the non-caring attitude of management

    Cons

    No orientation for new employees, left it to the offices that are already understaffed. No exit interviews of employees to determine reason for leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corp should read their own Tenets and live by them

    Pros

    Office culture, kind management, good hours

    Cons

    Lack of structure and formalized project planning

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Speaking only for corporate (non patient care) employment.... The best and worst part of working at PruittHealth is that it is run like the family business that it is. If you prefer traditional structure of a fortune 500 company with meetings, committees, formal project planning, etc., then you will not like PruittHealth. If you prefer a more relaxed atmosphere with direct interaction with other teams so things can be done more quickly, but without the safety blanket (or scapegoat) of a defined process for everything, then you'll like working at PruittHealth.

    Pros

    Shared misery between employees which brings staff close! The patients are the only thing that brings you back!

    Cons

    No matter how hard you work its never enough! Leadership/management do not care about the hard working honest staff and will work you to the bone with no appreciation. They give less than mediocre training then blame the employee for not "knowing" how to do their job. Raises are laughable, no PTO on holidays, no overtime...even when you work overtime...they find a way to take your hours from you. Work days are long and grueling for the pay you receive. Its very sad because the office I worked had a great staff who wanted the best for the company, however, management obviously did not feel the same! The job made for a miserable life and if you are a reputable hardworking nurse I would think before you take a job here. There are many other places to work that will appreciate and care about their employees. It looks like its not just our branch but a shared belief of employees on a whole that this place stinks! I could list cons for days but I think this says enough!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none....they wouldn't listen if I wrote it here.

    I have been working at PruittHealth

    Pros

    To be honest I really can't think of a good reason, aside from thanking God for a job.Being able to know that when I was on shift I did my very best to give excellent care to the residents.The patients/residents kept me going.

    Cons

    Not having enough staff to provide efficient care on a consistent basis.The facility is always short of staff, so in turn it would cause the nurses to be behind with their medication pass because help was needed to toilet,feed,transfer and prevent falls of patients more than with in reason.The equipment does not work properly and their are Blood pressure machines that have been needing to be replaced for a couple of years literally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop telling staff members its not in the budget and do something about getting more help so the nurses are not overwhelmed with extra duties.Other wise the patients along with the staff that continues to work there will suffer.Start making an effort to care about the employees work setting.Stop being more concerned with how much money management/owner will have in their pockets and invest more in keeping a safe,clean,healthy work environment.
