    Pros

    Floor staff is dedicated, provide awesome care to patients,trustworthy, dependable and long suffering.
    Floor staff desires to follow leadership and do well.

    Cons

    Management appreciates nothing. Only continue to pile on more work and change processes constantly, then are angry when deadlines are not met. Impossible to keep from drowning or burning out. Management vs Floor staff mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Look at management at the faculty level. If turn over is high, look at DON for reason.... Regional teams are out of touch with reality at facility level. Huge disconnect between each level...

    Pros

    Pay sucks, insurance REALLY SUCKS, Expectations are funny because its unrealistic. Some people are helpful but they are pulled in 20 different ways they don't have time to focus on their job duties
     "True Blue" Code is a joke......Change actually starts at the top (owners) and then work your way down, not.in the middle.

    Cons

    Hell in a hand basket, always running in circles to clean up the staffs mess, when its basic 101 nursing. Anywhere else they would be fired on the spot.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to recognize the employees that do a good job, fire the ones that don't want to be there and are incompetent. Have real exceptions for your facilities specially your always under staff, staff is pulled so thin that burn out is going to happen or you will lose the staff that can actually benefit your company.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your staff equally. Favoritism is poor practice. You cannot treat your staff poorly on a daily basis and expect hotdog lunch every few months to raise employee moral

    I worked at Communicare Health Services (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Facility level management tries within the limitations of corporate, it says I have to write 20 words of positive feed back but I have none

    Cons

    Horrible benefits, upwards of 800$ a month for a family plan. Poor staff to patient ratios. They say they value employees but there is no follow up with concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through with True Blue, if you are going to preach it, practice it. Upper non facility management is not as supportive as they would like to think they are. Another report fixes nothing

    I worked at Communicare Health Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with the residents (if you can make any time for it after being overwhelmed with responsibilities). Salary is reasonable. Paid holidays off.

    Cons

    No room for promotions, incentives, or bonuses. Management team is not cohesive (i.e. power struggles), profit-driven vs. client centered, unethical practices, understaffed, poor resident care.

    Advice to Management

    Praise your workers when they do well. Don't focus so much on criticizing and demeaning them. Make them feel like they are appreciated and you will get better results. Make sure your 90-day reviews are accurate and not on hear-say. Allow your whole team to participate in decision-making and allow them to speak their professional ideas and opinions. Give incentives. Hire more STNA's and Nurses, and make sure you have properly trained and certified staff for your locked Mental Health and Alzheimer's/Dementia units. Care for your residents, not just your pocket book.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits and never down time

    Cons

    As the supervisor you are the only go to nurse in the two facilities and you have your own floor to work if not two due to a call off. There is no consideration for issues that arise in many people's lives like a family member being hospitalized, you still get points for absence even with documentation. Snow storms do not get consideration.

    I worked at Communicare Health Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It is a very clean nursing home.

    Cons

    The resident to nurse ratio is way too high. The demands that are placed on nurses are not realistic. We work eight hour shifts and are expected to complete a 12 hour workload plus take a 30 minute break and get out on time. Many of the STNA's are disrespectful and have low work ethics.

    Advice to Management

    Higher more nurses! There should be 6 nurses on 1st and 2nd shifts. On one side there are 76 resident and only two nurses. The residents have dementia and require extensive care. On the afternoon shift families visit and call, physicians write orders and there are two heavy med passes. Residents have behaviors and fall. This requires extra nursing care and reports to be filled out. Departments have been eliminated and the work falls to the nurses. How can you expect your nurses to take a break and get out on time AND deliver quality care with this workload? I have heard several poor reviews from people in the community about this nursing home from those who have removed their loved ones and placed them in another facility.

    Pros

    While it varies greatly on your manager, corporate employees enjoy a great deal of flexibility in their schedules. The vision of the CEO - while never fulfilled - is inspiring.

    Cons

    Management is incompetent and forever reinventing the wheel to address the most recent problem. Politics is the name of the game with most of the big corporate players.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO needs to pay closer attention to what his other senior leadership is up to. If they had the heart of Mr. Rosedale, the company would be a success regardless of the economic environment.
