Admissions Coordinator (Former Employee) – Dedham, MA – August 31, 2017
I had a good experience with the team of people I worked with. Training was always available and being updated for the employees. There was a great deal of support with one another. My manager was very approachable and willing to help with any situations that arose.
Director of Dining Services (Current Employee) – Wilkes-Barre, PA – August 30, 2017
Here at golden living, we have been bought out by priority health care. Since then, my job duties have changed. I was doing a lot of clinical work and less operations. The new company laid off my assistant and put me primarily in the kitchen. This left me to cook a lot of shifts and weekends. I have not received any additional compensation since working here and its been almost 4 years. My benefit expense has increased tremendously. My administrator is the reason I am still here. I would love to get out of the healthcare atmosphere and branch out.
RN (Former Employee) – Henning, MN – August 29, 2017
Again a place that feels threatened when an RN comes to work when the normal has been LPNs mainly work there. A lot of cut throat atmosphere for a long time. Given time people learn you are there to be a service to the residents and not take jobs away from people.
Rated number one of all the Nursing Homes in Missouri
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Malden, MO – August 27, 2017
Golden Living Facility was at the time number one against all of the Nursing Homes in Missouri. They gave each residents choices to make regarding their needs and wants. Excellent Nurses and CNAs worked their hardest to give the best care for all of the residents.
Nice place to work but had alot of turnover with upper management.
Business Office Manager (Former Employee) – Oak Hill, MA – August 27, 2017
I worked at this company for many years and was pretty happy there. There were a lot of changes in the staff and management but everyone tried to work together to help each other through it all.
Working to help the residents and families was the most enjoyable part of my job. Seeing them enjoy themselves in an activity or after coming back from an outing and the smiles on their faces was the best. The hardest part was watching the decline of the residents' mental and physical capabilities and not being able to do much about it.
I learned a lot at this company and would work there again if I was to move back to my former state.
Charge Nurse & Supervisor (Former Employee) – Decatur, GA – August 21, 2017
Charge Nurse & Supervisor for 24 - 28 patients. A typical day begins with getting report from the out going Nurse, making CNA assignments and delegating nursing assignments when Nurse on duty did not show up without notification. Making sure the immediate needs of the patient who are in distress are taken care of first. Administering medication per Physician's order, ensuring CNA duties are performed including breakfast, bath etc. Follow-up with critical labs, calling Physician for new orders and carrying them out with the Pharmacy, scheduling follow-up appointments, performing wound care and doing admissions and discharges. The hardest part of the job is working short staff and when patient's families visited, and complained their love ones (patient) is neglected, especially when care is not performed in a timely manner. This is a poor reflection of the Nurse-supervisor. The most enjoyable and rewarding part of the job is, when you are satisfied you have done your best by making a difference in the life of the patient and he/she is appreciative.
Certified Nurse Assistant (Former Employee) – Rapid City, SD – August 20, 2017
I did not like working there as a CNA. Patient ratios were unrealistic, which in turn effected patient care. Management did not care about their employees, had my manager tell me that the only way I would get an excused absence from work is if I was "admitted into the hospital and dying". Started at $10/hr and received no raise for over two years. Differentials were not worth it. Only reason I stayed there was because I felt bad for the residents.
I did my clinical rotations here and the place is completely FILTHY!! The smell of urine and feces when you walk in the door is terrible. If you want your loved one to lay in bed all day and do nothing, then this is the place for you.
CNA/Caregiver (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – August 17, 2017
Golden Living Center is a fast-paced environment with highly unique/lovely people who are perfect to interact with. Golden Living specializes in the care of your loved ones -- management 'chips' in wherever they can to help clients/staff ... ongoing training is focused on heavily [they want to be the best!].
Golden Living is much more peaceful than other facilities.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – August 15, 2017
Work as a CNA in this facility is a great way to gain experience, though it could be fast-paced to the point of being overwhelming. This, though, can be true of many medical facilities. The management was very supportive of the staff, including being hands on with help.
The best part of my time and job there were the patients. They really light up your shift.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Fullerton, NE – August 13, 2017
I greatly enjoyed the residents I took care of. I learned how to be patient when I was working in the behavioral unit. I learned about time management and how to chart thoroughly. The workplace at times was less then desirable. Management could stand to be revamped.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Cottonwood Falls, KS – August 12, 2017
It was a normal nursing home.. However, it was a very hostile work environment, and I will never go work for them again. There was a incident that happened, and they only listened to e side, not the whole story. Then to top it all off, I got laid off.
