    I worked at Riverside Healthcare part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Meaningful relationships with staff/residents Earned time Decent pay

    Cons

    Poor management No work/life balance Lack of respect from management Poor patient care Overworking without benefits

    Advice to Management

    Managment needs to be more flexible for their employees at Miller Rehabilitation. The lack of empathy towards staff, overworking/ overscheduling despite their FTE, and just a general disconnection from staff and resident needs has cultivated a toxic work environment. They need to learn how to schedule better so that they utilize their temporary relief staff more and aren't working part time staff 40+ hours a week... without benefits.

    I worked at Riverside Healthcare full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Friendly, supportive ancillary staff who will bend over backward to make your life as pleasant as possible.

    Cons

    Increasingly more bureaucratic work placed on physicians without commensurate compensation & with utter disregard for the presence of only 24 hours in a day. Management does not address physician concerns about physician-well being. Rather, they see stress as a weakness on the part of the physician. Excessive monetary fines for late documentation when workload makes it impossible to meet such demand. Obsessed... with patient survey scores with total disregard for satisfaction of employees. High turnover rate among staff, causing much disruption. A ton of narcissism & sadism within administration.

    I worked at Riverside Healthcare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Community feel; nice employees-- especially the ones caring for patients. There is a lot of heart on the clinician side.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, it's really gone downhill just the last handful of years. Poor and uninformed leadership is driving out some of the most caring physicians, providers and staff because of poor decision making. Growth, unless you're senior leadership, is dismal and, quite frankly, not based on talent but who you know.

    Advice to Management

    Don't get too confident. Your clinicians provide great, award-winning care-- yes. But if you focus only on the dollar, it will only be a matter of time before you drive out your best. Listen to your employees and ask why your talent is seeking better opportunities.

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

    Pros

    Most of the Residents are wonderful. There’s a great treatment team that manages all wound care and treatments. The staff is down to earth and likeable. Great DON, ADON and Administrator! Facility is kept beautiful

    Cons

    For The Charge Nurse...The workload is not always manageable. Often short staffed. Been through 3 Unit Managers in less than 6 months. The Unit Managers have No clue what is going on on their Unit and the burden of all the paperwork, documentation, and communication with the doctor and family is all on the Nurse. That’s On top of supervising the aides, med pass and bedside. Oftentimes it’s the Nurse training the... Unit Manager. Phone is constantly ringing and all calls go directly to the Units instead of being filtered through a call prompt or switchboard. The stress level is beyond crazy and most days you’ll want to quit

    Advice to Management

    Please allow Unit Managers to Manage the Unit. Your Nurses need guidance, support and someone willing to help! Unit Managers should not be in meetings all day and be clueless as to what is happening back on the Unit. Then go off to Lunch without checking in on the team.
