Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Lackawanna, NY – December 10, 2015
I worked as an LPN in a nursing home. The job was rewarding and heartbreaking at the same time. I got to know the residents at a personal level and loved to come to work and care for them. They gave me a reason to come to work and a purpose to be fulfilled at my workplace.
Home Health Aide (Current Employee) – Farmingdale, NY – October 25, 2015
a typical day at work is very challenging. I have learned lots of patients working for this company. The hardest part of my job is traveling where I have to drive to five or four different homes in a day which can be very tiring. The most enjoyable part of the job is working on my own and not have to have a boss watching over my shoulder.
I loved working here. The people were a fun group of people. My day consisted of coding and entering invoices from 2 nursing homes, 2 rehab hospitals, the corporate office and a special needs school. The hardest part of the job was month end and getting all the invoices from the facilities to be able to do a good accrual. The enjoyable part was doing something that is hard to do and it coming out well. The health bill was 3 spreadsheets that had to be downloaded and converted to a usable spreadsheet for entering into the a/p system.
First extremely disorganized, Admission RN department and management do not care about patients only about the numbers, name of this company Catholic is supposed to be compationed with the patients, BUT IS NOT, is only numbers!!!, Well now THE BENEFITS package, is JOKE, more than 800 usd, every month only health insurance, for a family of 4, So if you go to the interview be sure to ask all question, although they could lie to you That happen to me, So ladies and gen you are advise.

As a geriatric resident, a typical day included treating a variety of geriatric patients with rehab, SNF, and outpatient settings. I had times of mentoring as well to improve my expertise in the treatment of patients within the given setting. I worked in 3 different clinics during the year rotation. Management and co-workers varied based on the setting I was in at the time. The hardest part of the job was completing the paper and projects I had to do outside of the work day. The most enjoyable part was getting to work with some excellent and inspiring patients along the way.
free parking, plenty of mentoring available, overall nice managers and staff
length notetaking, time needed for extra preparation outside of work, long hours in outpatient

IT Nurse (Former Employee) – Villa Maria - St. Catherine's – March 27, 2013
Proceed with caution - Not a true nursing informatics position. Expectations of this job are not clearly defined and the people in charge do not give you proper guidance. Location staff are welcoming and great. Enjoyed learning new systems. All (but two people) were open and supportive. Harderst part of the job was the driving to the various location. Training for what you need to do the job is hap-hazard.
wonderful staff and coworkers
no true guidance or defined expectations from senior - always changed from day to day
Due to the heavy volume my day started as early as 7am. The office personnel spent so much time talking that they did not spend enough time working. The supervisors spent too much time trying to placate everyone. The best part of this job was the abliity to work without direct supervision. Much of my work was done alone. We had deadlines everyday and check runs for different hospitals daily. I learned how to use Exel which enabled me to compete my work faster. I also learned not to work for a company with 25 people in Accounts Payable
