Pros: rare moments of brightening a resident's day
Cons: everything else, no time to perform all nursing duties safely, let alone have a break or grab a granola bar, no time for compassion, staff and residents are seen as less than human due to ceo focus on nothing but profit, ceo not a medical professional, just a businessman playing the profit game
As an RN, I entered the medical field hoping to improve the lives of those I served. That cannot happen at a facility like this. The goal of the CEO of Covenant Dove is to increase profit, nothing more. Both the staff and residents of Covenant Dove get treated poorly due to the horrendous and unethical business model. We were always short-staffed, and I am not exaggerating when I say that I got in trouble by one of my managers for spending 2 minutes listening to a resident confide in me her fears of dying without her son by her side when it happened. 2 minutes. It doesn't profit them for residents or patients to have people pay any attention to them, we are expected to shove a cup full of pills at them and check off the box saying they took them without having any time to evaluate and assess each pt. I will not go into detail about each and every insufficiency of this workplace because I don't have enough room to write them all here, but I urge anyone considering working here to walk away. It is not worth potentially losing your license because of how truly unsafe and understaffed the work environment is. This is not a good employer, and it is certainly not a place of healing. My heart aches for the residents unlucky enough to be stuck behind those walls and locked doors, a building without compassion, hope, or care.
