High Standards
CNA (Former Employee), arizonaAugust 25, 2014
Pros: reasonable pay, work atmosphere
Cons: short staff at times
This was my first nursing home job as a CNA and I was thoroughly impressed with the high standards the facility held towards the residents and work ethics. The director of nursing and management were very professional and worked with you in everything you needed help with. The nursing staff I worked with were amazing. The only problem I found when I – more... started working for this company were some of the employees thinking they were better than you. Of course every company is going to have those kind of employees, but I never let it affect me. I was there to do what I loved to do to help assist the elderly and also to provide for my family. The hardest part of the job was making sure that everyone was safe. Usually there were only two CNA's out on the floor on NOC shift so it was very had to keep an eye on 13 to 20 residents. The most enjoyable part of my job was giving my all and time for the residents. It was a very rewarding feeling for me because I know I am there to help them at a time in their life when they need help the most. – less

Working in Nursing Home environment
CNA (Current Employee), Atwood, KSJuly 29, 2014
Pros: able to work any shift that works great with your at home schedule
Cons: short breaks
My day working on a 2200-0600 shift (currently) is we usually do chores which consist of changing out hand towels, vitals signs being taking, and new water pitchers taken in to residents room. We will occasionally be putting a few residents to bed. I have learned in the past 5 years that some shifts do not get along at all but team work is always in – more... the works no matter what shift you are on. My coworkers are always hard at work and usually keeping a close eye on what is new on residents. The hardest part of my job is dealing with the elderly passing for I have gotten attached to them as well as their families and it is so hard to see their families going through such a hard time. The most enjoyable part of my job is changing the lives of residents. Reassuring the residents that their lives are in excellent hands as I take care of them on a daily basis. – less

Nursing staff made more of a mess than residents, issue was never addressed. Direct supervisor was caring and understanding. Usually short staffed due to people quitting because of low pay.

a wonderful team
Medical social worker (Former Employee), Omaha NEJuly 8, 2014
A typical day would be compeleting psychosocial assessment with residents, discharges, admissions and completing paper work. But there was nothing typical in this setting because everyday came with its own challenges from working with families and residents that need different support and resources, to working with long term residents and rehab that – more... makes the facility unique. My co workers were great, good team work and timely execution of tasks. The hardest part was having to leave such a wonderful team and the residents that i was already getting attached to. The most enjoyable part of my job as a medial social worker was the constant adrenaline due to changes. No dull moment. – less

a day in the life of
Certified Nurse Assistant (Current Employee), Gresham, ORJune 2, 2014
Pros: experience
Cons: not enough pay
*start of the day with change in report from prior shift; check for daily showers; prepare for those showers; assist the residents with dressing, toileting, bathing, transfers, OT/PT appointments,
*Assist in the dining room, or assist in the hall with all meals
*answer all call lights, report any changes with any resident to the nurse, i.e. vitals, – more... symptoms, etc.
* assist the nurse
* end of day change of report to the next shift coming in Chart all ADL's

Management is average. They are able to answer questions, provide answers and assist with any personal problems.

My co- workers are great to work with and very enjoyable.

The hardest part of the job is the fact that I care too much and want the best for everyone that is there. Caring too much is hard.

The most enjoyable is the fact that I can always put a smile on their faces with my personality. I love having fun, singing and making them smile. – less

I liked working with others on a team and being responsible for the staff in my supervision
Director of Environmental Services (Former Employee), Bismarck, NDMay 26, 2014
Pros: working with people in a professional environment and being a part of the team
Cons: expensive healthcare, on call 24-7
My typical day would start with checking my e-mails and job list for the day. I would have a small meeting with my staff to plan our day. I was the manager of my department and would work with the managers of other departments. During my employment I learned to use my computer for communication with other departments and the central campus. I also learned – more... to order online. I learned to work with my co workers in theirs positions. The hardest part of my job was staying under budget in such an unpredictable field. The most enjoyable part was working with the residents, learning about their lives, and creating a clean and comfortable environment for the residents and staff. – less

Clean floors, clean resident rooms, maintain building
Maintenance (Former Employee), Pipestone, MNMay 10, 2014
I would use cleaning supplies to clean the residents floors. I would also vacuum and use a carpet cleaner on all the carpeted areas including hallways and dining rooms. I would mop and polish the tile and hardwood areas. I'd clean up any messes either from residents or from occurring problems.
