How is management perceived at Carolina House?

Pros

The RPA's, therapists, doctors, nurses, dieticians, and culinary staff do an amazing job caring for the patients with increasingly limited resources.

Cons

CH was once a place I was proud to work for and provided excellent care for the patients. When the new CEO started in 2018, everything went down-hill. Staffing of RPA's was cut in half and all staff was stretched to their limits to compensate. Experienced staff gradually left, leaving mostly undertrained staff that don't stay long. When the patient's would ask why we were always understaffed, management's explanation was to blame it on COVID. But, that had nothing to do with it. It was the working conditions. The day-shift nurse is now doing the job of 2 nurses and often RPA duties as well. I was very sad to leave this job.

Advice to Management

Provide adequate staffing and compensation
