CNA I (Former Employee), Eugene, OR – September 25, 2013
Pros: pool and workout facility that was accessable for employees to use during certain hours of the day.
Cons: they do not care about their employees
This is a continuing care facility, but is private pay and does not accept insurance. It is a pacific retirement services (PRS) facility that the employees are in a constant feeling that they are completely expendable and replaceable. They did provide excellent care for their patients in the long-term care facility area of the establishment.
aid (Former Employee), eugene, or – January 4, 2013
Pros: wealthy residents
Cons: no advancement and high turnover.
The bottom line is money. I don't think anyone has had more than a 2% raise ever. Management wants to work as little as possible, while still keeping up with OSHA and CARF standards. They charge the residents for every petty little thing, a roll of toilet paper cost $5 for residents. Recently a CNA was fired because she was pregnant. The DNS asked her – more... to directly to perform some heavy lifting knowing she was pregnant, when she asked co-workers for help the DNS called her into her office and told her that if she couldn't perform her job than she couldn't work here. There is also very little advancement especially for lower level employees. This nursing home has chain of hatred were the DNS is mean to the Nurses who are then grouchy and mean to the CNA's, sort of thing that happens at other nursing homes. You also have to clock out for your lunch break, and you rarely get your 15 min breaks. – less
