    I have been working at Diversicare Healthcare Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Staff is always friendly and the company values people who are willing to work as a team. As one person said management hangs do not disturb signs on doors. I’ve not seen this but it goes against company expectations for management to be available.

    Cons

    Benefits could be better, such as 401k match and vacation time. I’ve had a better package in the past but there are other reasons I chose to work here vs other organizations.

    Pros

    You get to help people that can't do for themselves. You talk to them just being there for someone is a blessing.

    Cons

    You see things that you want to quit. Some of them get depressed because they have no family visiting then. That's hard to watch.

    Advice to Management

    Need to do better with the employees that they hire.

    I have been working at Diversicare Healthcare Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They do have a few nurses, and 1 CNA that worth their weight

    Cons

    Management is very poor with nurses that are horribly inept and have had multiple infractions against their licenses. Gross amount of negligence and wrongdoing by both both licensed staff and unlicensed staff. The facility has had consistent issues with abuse infractions that do not ever get reported due to site management and site supervisors covering up issues. Consistent isolation of alzheimer and dementia patients...

    Advice to Management

    You CANNOT be charged with 9 immediate jeopardy infractions from the state and only terminate 2 employees and make a difference. While you can teach nurses how to make a nurses note, you CANNOT make nurses chart notes that are untrue and/or against that nurses good judgement. This is a right given to her by the state through her license. And that is true in every single state in this country, and true of every other...

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Diversicare Healthcare Services

    Pros

    The pay is ok. Some of the nurses are nice.

    Cons

    You work short. The nurses have favorite and If you aren't one of those favorites just expect to be piled with extra work. Only a select few nurses will help you other than that you are on your own. The building smells like urine majority of the time. No one ever stay there because it's either full of drama or short staffed
