Productive and very interactive
Training/HR Associate (Former Employee), Brockton, MANovember 4, 2013
The Managers are interactive with all the associates on a friendly basis and a a teaching basis, The hours work with life perfectly 9am to 5pm. Co-workers are very generous to each other, in the work area an outside the work area. The hardest part would be the beginning of the fiscal month where all the paper work come in at once. The most enjoyable – more... part is the work itself because all the associates help each other in need. – less

Keep looking
Licensed Nurse (Former Employee), Broccton, MAApril 13, 2013
Pros: plenty of one-on-one time with patients.
Cons: everything else.
While able to spend plenty of time with PATIENTS (I refuse to call them clients, which BAMSI expects), I don't recommend working for this company. I have been a nurse for almost 10 years, and was treated like any other worker there, with no degree and no clue of what is supposed to occur when dealing with medical care. If a patient was suspected by – more... me of having a UTI or any other sickness and I reported this to a superior, it fell on deaf ears. They practically all but removed my ability to assess a patient's needs, and when I was scolded for not giving a patient a shower when they flat out refused to take one, I knew I had to look for something else. (Nursing 101: if a patient refuses ANYTHING, it is their choice to do so, and to MAKE them is called abuse of their human rights.) The laymen they hire are required to take a simple class, then given the keys to the med cabinet - AND are allowed to take and transcribe orders - rather than insisting qualified medical professionals take charge of this. There are thousands of meds out there, and these people they train do NOT know most of the time WHAT they are for, but more importantly, what can go wrong when they are taken incorrectly, or with another med they should not be taken with. If I, as a nurse, do not know what a med is for and what its side effects or drug interactions are, and I administer to a patient, it is a med error and the ramifications of this can be pretty serious. I found BAMSI to be trying very hard to re-write the definition of nursing and healthcare, and poorly at that - which made me scared for my license that I worked to hard to earn. I do have to say that being able to take patients to the mall or something during your shift is a big plus, and a refreshing change from being on a nursing unit for 12 hours or more. The entirety of the company is at least half immigrants, which for some reason I never figured out is so important to this outfit... I only mention because when you can't understand a co-worker whenever they speak, it can be a LONG shift. (families of the patients dislike this as well - if they cannot understand them, HOW could their family member who is disabled or compromised??) – less

on-call relief
Residential Counselor (Current Employee), Brockton, MASeptember 18, 2012
My job as an on-call direct care personnel is very hands-on. My days are anything but typical. There is always an activity or a learning opportunity. I work in a group home setting, which I truly enjoy. The clients I serve have a variety of physical and mental disabilities. They are very very special people that I've grown very attached to over the – more... years. I've learned time management and how to function in high crisis situations. My coworkers are seasoned experts who always have a little story or a lesson to share with me. The hardest part of the job is not having a set schedule. Sometimes, the clients lash out towards staff in anger and it can be a little difficult to give care to a client who is agitated because they are medically unstable. However, the overall experience is a positive life-changing one. The best part of the job is improving the quality of others' lives. – less

Not a bad place to work. Workload is pretty easy.
Licensed Practice Nurse - Per Diem (Former Employee), Brockton, MAAugust 23, 2012
Pros: decent per diem rate
Cons: not enough hours that you can book early, always calling a the last hours
Not a bad place to work. Only 5 residents to care for, med passes are fairly straightfoward. Most staff seem to be very invested in the care of the residents.

worst job I've had in 30 years of working
LPN (Former Employee), Brockton, MAJune 27, 2012
This company had just opened a group home for developmentally disabled and was having a hard time keeping it staffed, so I got hired without a lot of experience, I was fresh out of nursing school. This particular site has the highest job turnover I've ever seen. Within three weeks of hire, the head nurse who trained me quit and the program director – more... above her was fired for embezzlement. As I was orienting, I was told not to discuss my schedule with the other nurses because one of them did not know they were getting fired and replaced by me. Enough said? Do I need to discuss how they took on patients far too complex for a group home environment staffed by a single nurse (two completely vent-dependent residents, four G-tubes, one slowly dying, pretty much everyone a seizure risk, one that seized almost every day) Thoroughly unprofessional at all levels, they hired a house manager with no social services or health care background who actually was responsible for managing nurses, CNAs who sleep on overnights and who try to get each other and nurses fired. Then after they fired me, they managed to ruin my COBRA claim by losing checks that were sent to them by certified mail. Enough said? – less

fun work environment
residential counselor (Current Employee), Carver, MaMay 24, 2012
i love working with people. Ive been told i have a gift to make people laugh and happy and caring for people is a talent i have. Im very good at cooking and extremely patient when it comes to washing clients who need that kind of care. After dinner i usually did a little art therapy with those clients interested which they absolutely loved. Hardest – more... part of the job is dealing with the verbal abuse at some of the houses but you just have to remember that they are there for a reason and so are we. Everyone has there good and bad days but staff can not because those people need all the love they can get. If staff has a bad day leave it at the door. Most clients have lived tough lives and dont need extra stress. – less
