lpn nurse (Former Employee) – Oak Ridge, TN – November 12, 2015
Residents and co workers are the best! Your co workers are always ready & willing to help whenever needed but administration leaves a lot to be desired! No consistency and the rules change to fit their needs. They are unprofessional and uncaring of staff. They could care less of your thoughts or concerns unless it boosts them or their egos. They are inexperienced as administration leaders & they love to show just how much power they have over you.
great place to work if u want to break your back!!!

RN (Current Employee) – Alabama – October 13, 2015
I started as a floor nurse, worked as RN supervisor, and was recently promoted to Director of Nursing. This company genuinely cares about the residents and staff, in that order. The culture of Diversicare is to improve every life they touch. Healthcare is a crazy world but with the right support center, you can make a difference in the resident's lives. Thank you Diversicare for taking me in and pushing me to excel!

The most enjoyable part of the job was on my first day back all the residents and my coworkers, all telling me they missed me, and was sure glad I was back. Both would state they didn't like when I was off. It really makes me fill like I'm doing a great job and its noticed.
filling wanted and missed by the residents and coworkers.
working 3-11 full time only one weekend off every six weeks, not being able to see my kids or hel them with home work at time before bed.
Nurse (Former Employee) – Tennessee – July 31, 2015
Staffing issues, very high turnover, too many breaks for smokers, management not approachable and doesn't keep their word, shows favoritism, certain CNAs work their butts off while others don't, love the patients I cared for
I come into work and get report on anything we need to know that happens with the residents and their mood, then I take care of all the residents needs throughout my shift, and at the end of the shift we give report and chart on the progress of each individual resident throughout the shift. My co-workers were wonderful, caring people that I got very close to and the environment was full of laughter and smiles. The hardest part of the job was when residents passed away after you've gotten so close to them. I loved to take care of the residents and listening to the stories they have to tell. It makes your day when they tell you positive feedback about how you do your job and that they care about you, too.
Get close to the residents, lots of hours, and flexible scheduling
Although It's always great helping those in need. The building is always short staffed and the nursing assistants are under appreciated. When the building is short staffed, management doesn't help and at the most, one CNA will approximately be assigned to 30 patients during the 7 and a half hours shift.

The cooperate office does not have a clue to what is going on in their buildings. They usually listen to one or two staff members and that is usually the ones that walk around and do absolutely nothing. They keep the nurses that talk bad to each other and let the ones go that actually care about the patients. There are nurses there that hold the patients medications and make them wait till they get ready to give them. These nurses talk aweful to the patients and they keep them.

Upper management in facilities as well as at corporate level need to take serious look at turnover rate of staff. Increase pay of cna and nurses would be a great start don't let your staff feel unappreciated 1% raise is horrible can't keep up with cost of living and outrageous insurance company offers
I have worked at Hartford Healthcare for 13+ years. This facility is like my family. I enjoy working with all the staff we are a small facility with a big heart and home like environment. Hartford Healthcare is a clean facility. Our mission statement is" Improving every life we touch by providing exceptional health care and exceeding expectation". And we make every effort to achieve those goals.
salary, small facility, professional work evironment, and friendly co workers.
Great employees, terrible corporate team. They micromanage from another state and never keep facility management for longer than a couple of years even if they are doing a good job. Very cut throat mentality. Senior VP'S don't have a clue how to properly run things and don't care about facility reputation. Great place to work if a different corporation would buy them out!
