    I worked at Communicare Health Services full-time

    Pros

    The staff was nice and welcoming despite working short staffed majority of the time

    Cons

    Dirty building, worthless management that will lie during interview to get you to make the mistake of taking the job only to come to work your 1st shift and see the truth. Always understaffed and unfortunately the residents don't get all the care they deserve. Would not let a loved one go to this facility. Building is so old and needs renovation but mostly CLEANED....so filthy, would see bugs crawling around.

    Advice to Management

    Hire ALL NEW Management and get people that actually come out of the office and care

    Pros

    I wish I could think of one

    Cons

    I am disgusted with this place. Their motto should be "Money first, patient second." I have seen them lie to state about staffing. They won't report when a patient has shingles, they'll try to sweep it under the rug. Administration can't be bothered to come in when we are short staffed. I've seen good nurses become run down. And their time off is a joke, Work one full year before you get anything, no sick time whatsoever. They won't even make exceptions for severe illnesses like the flu. I'm sure families would love to hear that their nurses and aides are forced to come in with the flu or risk being fired. And it's not like they pay their nurses well to begin with or give decent insurance. I left for a job that had better pay, common sense call off policies, and overall better care for the patients. They couldn't pay me to return.

    Advice to Management

    Administration: get yourselves to work when you know you will be understaffed.
    Offer better time off for workers and have special considerations for those who are taking time off due to illness

    Pros

    None that come to mind.

    Cons

    CommuniCare Health Services recently bought out the Essex Healthcare subsidiary of Atrium Living Centers (Columbus, OH). 13 buildings were added to their already sub-par repertoire of nursing homes. My building, Canton Healthcare Center was purchased on 2/15/18 with an official take-over date of 3/1/18. Our Administrator assured us that all of our positions were secure and it would just be a simple transfer one CommuniCare officially took us over. I should have know it was a lie. I was contacted by phone on the evening of 2/27/18 at 7PM (having dinner with my family) and was told CommuniCare decided not to bring me on with the take-over. I was not offered 30 days notice (which would have been the professional thing to do since I was a director) nor was I even approached about renegotiating my salary. I wasn't even allowed two weeks to close out my cases and outstanding investigations.

    Advice to Management

    For a company who talks about transparency and taking care of their employees, you may want to reassess what your company culture represents! Terrible company to work for....maybe...since I was never given the chance. Getting rid of exemplary employees who never had corrective counseling and all outstanding performance evaluations is a travesty, yet keeping staff (Administrator) who has zero people skills and lies to her employees on a daily basis is quite pathetic.
