    Pros

    The staff is great. Their knowledge is good. There are many different areas to utilize your nursing skills.

    Cons

    Their concern for staff overload doesn't exist. Employee turnover is very high. They are frequently short nurses and CNAs, yet they keep accepting patients. Staff is just expected to work overtime to cover the shifts that they don't have enough nurses to cover. It's very easy to burn out. Appreciation is not shown. The more you work, the more you are expected to work. Morale was very low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you have frequent turnovers. investigate! Believe it or not, everyone doesn't like overtime. It's not like it was a temporary thing. I waited two years, hoping for things to level off and they never did....

    I have been working at PruittHealth (more than an year)

    Pros

    Culture of Caring Individuals. People at the facility level really want the best for their patients and families. I am amazed at all of the talented, CNA's, LPN's, Housekeepers, Maintenance, etc. I consider it an honor to work with such great people.

    Cons

    In order to keep up with health care reform we are forced to implement a lot of systems to treat our patients. I hope that that implementing many brand new systems at once slows in the coming years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to strengthen your committed to caring culture. Some folks in the field would like to see more visits from Senior Level Executives to tell us how things are going. More communication.

    Pros

    The place is clean and their tenet in words are excellent

    Cons

    Management at hall level is very poor and does not have a human face.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employ hall managers who have a positive human sense and can combine theory and practice, and not just react as if writing up someone was their most essential duty.

    I have been working at PruittHealth (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The only good thing about working from this company is the relationships that you form with co workers patient and patients families.

    Cons

    To many to list but just to name a few...they treat you like some kind of roblot with zero feelings needs or human functions. I can speak of multiple times thatI have been kept running and half killing myself out in the field to the point that I come home feeling ill late in the evening ( way after 5pm) and then realized that I had not eaten or drank anything all day long not to mention I have not even been to the restroom since I left my home that morning to go to work. I didn't even realize that I could go for 12 to 14 hrs straight without so much as a bathroom break before I began working for this company. In my opinion it's a terrible place to work. They will run you down into the ground without a second thought, smile at you and then say thanks for all you do. If your thinking about working for this company I have one word for you DON'T!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay closer attention to what is going on within each of your offices. What looks one way at a corporate level looks totally different on your employees level. Also there is an individual currently employed in the office that I am employed in that is rude and disrespectful to the entire staff. I don't feel like he should even be allowed to hold a position in the company. He is definetly not "Committed to Caring" about any one other than himself.

    Pros

    Like the flexibility, management staff is great and so are the rest of the team members. Pay is good and mileage pay is above most.

    Cons

    To many patients, sometimes unrealistic expectations. On call can wear you out! They expect you to make a visit for every call received on call

    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).

    Pros

    Meet some nice people. Place to learn how you don't want to be treated

    Cons

    The absolutely biggest moral depleting place I have ever worked! Neil Pruitt doesn't realize why they are Nursing homes it's because of the Nurses, who are valued about as much as quality care in his buildings. Even as the DHS I have never been treated with so little respect. I have had two deficiency free surveys and never once gotten a thank you from my administrator, Area Vice President or Mr Pruitt. I find this extremely offensive considering prior to me coming there they had 10 tags on their last survey and were still under an IJ!!!
