Cook/Dietary Aide (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – August 22, 2017
Meeting the different residents and employees was a great experience. The only thing I didnt like was the lack of communication between management and employees. The lack of hands-on-training was very bad, so bad that new hires was quitting. Management only giving new hires one or two days of training and then telling them your on your own, sink or float.
Culinary Assistant (Former Employee) – Wausau, WI – September 19, 2017
I loved working at Wausau Manor Nursing Home. I have nothing bad to say about the work that I did as a Dietary Aid. However, I worked there two years with awards of doing good work and not ever once got a single raise and the managers were either always busy or not in their office.
Loved the eldery that lived there, co workers, and the work.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Coeur d'Alene, ID – September 12, 2017
They promise all kinds of things to get you in then they take them all awawy. There is bullying in upper management and they couldn't tell the truth to save their souls. I have never worked for such a self distructive facility
LPN Charge Nurse (Former Employee) – Shelton, WA – September 10, 2017
I joined for the sign on bonus and the promise of room to grow, Since working there, I have been threatened and bullied by management when asked for assistance from them. Constantly short staffed, nurses over overloaded with high patients loads and high acuity loads. And management does nothing to ensure staff safety. Sign on bonus only paid in Monthly installments and if you quit, you have to pay it back. So your stuck there in a Nightmare work environment until your year is up unless you can afford to pay the bonus back.

Some helps us and some don't . My coworkers kept me going
LPN Charge Nurse (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – August 27, 2017
I was hired as a full time LPN; and never was able to receive the full time status. They hired me and the employee which was to train me; was allowed to go on vacation. I have been waiting patiently to train on the floor for over 2 weeks. I have never had an employer be so ridiculous in their training. The right hand had no idea about the left hand. Orientation was backwards. Mainly because they called me and wanted me to work with the company in less than a fourteen hour notice. I had to ask questions about where to park, scrub attire, how to swipe into work, etc. It made me feel uncomfortable.
Internet Analyst (Current Employee) – South Milwaukee, WI – August 18, 2017
The day drags on because of lack of work to do. It is very slow paced and gets very boring. When there is work to do the day goes by fast but that is rarely. High turn over rate. Compensation is not good at all.
team leader (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – August 10, 2017
As a team leader I passed meds, charted on resident’s condition or change of condition, transcribed orders, performed wound dressing and treatment changes, blood glucose checks, injections, update physicians and families on resident’s condition or order changes, admissions, discharges, codes, AED, supervision of CNAs on team, and assisting with ADLs as needed
A center that continues to grow and improve..due to our staff!
Manager (Current Employee) – Beloit, WI – July 10, 2017
Many changes have occurred at our Center over the last six months; all have made improvements in the quality of care we are able to provide our residents. Co-workers and management alike work together to make sure our residents needs are met. The hardest part of the job is 'getting it all done', which is normal in healthcare. Upper management is responsive and good about making sure we have the people and supplies to do the best for our residents, and being supportive in doing the right thing every day. We just completed a "Quality Survey"-first time ever! I am proud to work for Fortis, and in particular, Beloit H&R.
Scheduler/Central Supply Clerk (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – June 21, 2017
A typical work day would be to help clients, answer multi phone line assist co-workers as needed. Maintain schedules and spreadsheets. Days are usually very busy assisting clients and guest. Enjoy people and helping it's very fulfilling to assist people in need of different situations. I love the outcome when I can make some one smile or assist them as they were hoping for. I like busy days and helping, there is no such thing as it's not my job, I will help where and when as needed. I take a positive approach on any project, even if it's something I don't much like doing. The outcome of success is greater then the difficult or not so attractive project.
RN (Former Employee) – Sheboygan, WI – June 11, 2017
Understaffed. Rude CNA's, don't do anything the nurses ask them to do. At times they'll cuss the nurses out. Work gets passed from shift to shift. Sometimes physician orders sit over 24 hours before someone actually works on them. Management don't care. You can talk to management 10 x about the same issue and nothing changes.
