    I worked at Life Care Centers of America full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful facility with great patients. The lower staff LOVE the patients and get along quite well with each other (housekeeping, maintenance, CNAs, receptionists, admissions, business office employees, nurses, and PT/OT/ST- basically the in-house staff). The ADON was terrific and supportive to new nurses and CNAs.

    Cons

    Really unorganized. HUGE staff turnover, especially nurses and CNAs. Benefits are TERRIBLE. Expensive insurance with minimal coverage. You only get holiday pay if you've been there three months, and only if you work that holiday (no paid holidays off). You have to work a full year before earning a day of your vacation time. 3 months before earning a day of sick time, and if you call in sick, you need a doctor's note in order to use the sick time you earned. Even with this rule, call offs among nurses and CNAs is out of control. Only 3-4 shifts of orientation before throwing new nurses on the floor, CNAs often get even less. Nurses get written up for not taking a lunch (clocking out) or working more than 30 minutes past their scheduled time off. It's often impossible to take a lunch break (if you're the only nurse on the floor, you can't leave the floor to clock out) or clock out on time due to around the clock admissions and under staffing.

    Advice to Management

    The patient's are the most important thing, not profit. The administrator made a reckless decision to save money and a patient almost died because of it. There is no excuse for this. Think of how you'd want your grandmother treated before looking out for your bonus. Give more orientation to new nurses, especially newly graduated nurses. Four shifts is not enough. Work on employee retention.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn the business. Fantastic training and education.

    Cons

    Difficult to find a good work-life balance. Although not necessarily due to anything related to the company but rather the healthcare industry itself.
