    I have been working at Cantex Continuing Care Network full-time

    Pros

    Pays well. Nice and clean facilities.

    Cons

    Management has little to no concern for patient care. They seem to only be driven by the bottom line. Love to attempt to keep up appearances. They love to manage with fear to motivate staff.

    Advice to Management

    Start actually having concern for patients and genuinely good employees.

    I have been working at Cantex Continuing Care Network full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Love the residents and families. Competitive pay, nice buildings, co-workers, shift availability. It’s hard to find a positive that makes Cantex stand out above others.

    Cons

    Upper management simply doesn’t care. The floor staff, are the ones working hardest to provide quality care, while being blamed for the building’s short comings. There never seems to be a budget for anything, except CEO salaries. Turnover is a nightmare. The health insurance is expensive and has a high deductible. Floor staff work short handed more often than not. Management inconsistent with how they address issues and adhere to policies. Management bends policies to suit their needs and agendas. The pharmacy has limited hours of operation. There is after hours available, but nurses are reprimanded for using the service because of cost. Most facilities use 24 hour pharmacies that make multiple deliveries and immediately process new admissions. No additional cost as it’s included in the contract. Cantex supposedly owns the pharmacy, but there’s been little benefit facility staff can see.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your floor employees. Invest in them. That would help the turnover. People don’t like starting new jobs, and are often left with no other choice. And pharmacy... there’s got to be a better way.

    I worked at Cantex Continuing Care Network full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is difficult to find any pros, but I do appreciate my current employer so much more for having worked at a Cantex facility. I also learned that it is sometimes worth it to take a significant pay cut to leave a bad situation. PTO is generous, but it is difficult to use the PTO one has accrued because all departments are constantly short staffed, so PTO is frequently not approved. Pay is above average industry standard.

    Cons

    Long hours, constantly understaffed, expectations beyond anything humanly possible, management is condescending and actually uses profane language towards staff in patient areas. The electronic documentation is not nursing friendly and requires double and triple documentation. If you truly care about patient care this is not the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the nurses, they are leaving in droves for a reason. I am a previous employee of the Lufkin location, and it was the worst job experience I have ever had. When I gave notice, I was offered more money to stay and I turned it down, taking a pay cut from my current wages to go to a different facility. It ultimately hurts the bottom line to disregard the dissatisfaction and high turnover of staff. If your staff is unhappy, then your patients will also be unhappy. I could write 10 pages on things that the management could improve on, but you didn't listen then and you won't listen now. Overall, listen to the nurses or continue to experience the level of staff turn over that you currently experience.
