    I have been working at Lexington Health Care part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Once I am giving a patient I get to make up my own schedule I make out all my own paperwork, I am on a one-to-one basis with my patient unless I am in a independent and or assisted living facility but still there's no need for me to work with the office concerning my patient I handle everything unless there is obviously an issue then I contact my supervisor or my case manager which would be the nurse on that particular case.

    Cons

    I am put down in their system is part time I work full time to be full time at Lexington you have to do 25 visits a week or more I do that and more but then there are some weeks you do less because someone might be discharged because it might be the end of the cert period, or someone got very sick and we had to send them to the hospital so it is impossible to stay at 25 visits or more every single week so that makes it very difficult for me. That is one way they make sure someone does not get insurance or vacation, and I drive everywhere for them I put 26,000 miles on my car in one year, I don't ever say no to a case because I absolutely adore what I do I love my patience I do have some repeats it just comes down to the fact that it gives me extreme joy to serve people, I guess that last part is not a con.

    Advice to Management

    Please please please upper management more communication, less talking about other people behind their backs, Because by the time it actually gets to you the person it was meant it has blown up to a ridiculous story. And upper management I'm not talking about our supervisors upper management respect is earned it's not demanded, you have to give it to get it.

    I worked at Lexington Health Care (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company is well established and for the most part the area I worked in tried to accomondate the employee. The pay is good, there was a point that my pay was lowered for almost a year, but then went back to the appropiate level.

    Cons

    Communication for the "headquaters" to the employee lacks.

    Advice to Management

    Keep things transparent. Your employees are the face of your company.

    Pros

    The company is very organized and clean and thorough with training. Ive been there about 8 weeks and have already had more training in them few weeks then the two years prior elsewhere. Every cna is responsible for their share of people and showers. All work is split evenly and assignments are pre-assigned so no one aid is getting stuck with all the work.

    Cons

    Constantly being asked to work doubles and every weekend because there isn't coverage

    I worked at Lexington Health Care full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Met some nice people. There are nice people working there, unfortunatly they don't get promoted. Helping patients is very rewarding, it's good when you can make someone's day just a little better.

    Cons

    Terrible management team; do as I say not as I do. Your opportunities for promotion are much better if you're Hispanic, competence and people skills are not required. Management hides in their offices and come out occasionally to yell at people while avoiding patients at all costs. If they ever do get caught by a patient they quickly dump them on the first person they see. The understaffing is rediculous and CNAs are far overworked. Nurses are not happy and are regularly frustrated because they're shorthanded too. Nurses also usually don't get a lunch break (yes illegal). The patient is put last; they're in a hurry to admit the next patient, they don't care where patients go or what follow-up they may need. It's all about they money.

    Advice to Management

    Change everything you do. Build your business around the patient, and then make it a place where employees are encouraged and rewarded for doing the right thing. Fire people who lie, especially if they're in management. This would be a great start that would go a very long way.

    Pros

    Staff works well together. Have some of the best nursing managers.

    Cons

    Supplies can be in short supply at times. Patient load can be heavy at times.

    Advice to Management

    A better training program needs to be developed. Also a hotline for employee concerns and suggestions would make a tremendous difference. In services regarding changes in policy needs to be more effective. At times things are changed and then never relayed to staff.
