This is a wonderful company with good ethics, morals, and administration. I had many opportunities to learn outside of the scope of my job description and embraced them wholeheartedly. This is a great like-minded company.
RN (Former Employee) – KSR, La Grange KY – March 30, 2015
Ratio on weekend in infirmary? 60:1 Management will say 60:2 but the other nurse in largely unavailable. And that also describes the spin management puts on things. CCS La Grange is dangerously under-staffed, and no clinical training (except for CPR) is provided. Your RN co-worker may not have any knowledge of acute adult interventions. There is often only 1 CNA on this unit, and they do REQUIRE RNs TO WORK AS CNAs. Only about 4 hydraulic beds rise on the unit, the rest are 24 inches from the ground. Inmates are under-medicated for their pain, even as they die. Supplies routinely run short. In addition to your nursing duties, you'll be expected to change out oxygen tanks (6-10 per shift), restraint checks, Q 1-2 hours turns on total care (nursing home level), admits, out-patient discharges, measured wound assessments, and of course your actual assigned work.
LPN (Former Employee) – Cape May Courthouse, NJ – July 12, 2014
Very poor management; lack of communication. very demanding and grueling work environment without much thanks, or even appreciation. No time to take a break. Impossible work load. I wish someone had warned me beforehand.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – July 1, 2014
This was an enjoyable job in a fast-paced working environment. The majority of the staff is helpful and supportive. The management, while good at their jobs, were lacking in communication skills. Policy changes and expectations were not clearly communicated across the separate facilities within the organization.
