Great place to work with a genuine heart for the elderly.
Director of Quality Management (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – October 4, 2015
I would recommend Grace Living Center to anyone and everyone. I have enjoyed working for this company and plan to continue working for them until I retire. They have treated me and my family very well and without Grace I would not be where I am today.
Opportunities for advancement and to know that the number one goal is always the patient.
LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) (Former Employee) – muskogee, ok – October 20, 2015
Any serious medication errors, missing medications, resident care issues, or Co worker issues are swept under the rug. Anyone can get by with anything. 30-40 residents to one nurse and one cna is dangerous. Especially since this is NOT an assisted living center. No med aid at night too many admits for one nurse in the evening and lots of movement during the day. Anything from IV antibiotics, surgery after care, high fall risks, and dementia residents all mixed in together. Kinda makes you guard your license a bit. Co workers are absolutely not quick to help unless you get the couple of the ones who will stay over even if it is to help with simple things or come in early to help so you can go home on time. Which you will never ever do. Problems taken to administration and don is just tucked away. And they will tell you whatever you want to hear to make you stay. They practically beg the sorry workers that are no call no shows to come back and cause more stress!!! All of this is unfair to the residents. No benefits at all. Just stress. And lots of drama drama drama. Your own health doesn't matter to administration. You want to do so much for the residents but there is too much to do with no help and lazy lazy Co workers.
You stay way busy. The residents are great.
Pay. Administration. No help. Too many residents to one nurse.
Manager (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – May 19, 2016
You will not find a more ethical nursing home organization in Oklahoma. The Owner genuinely cares about the residents as well as the employees. There is room for advancement and they go out of their way with scholarships to help your achieve your dreams!
Nursing (Former Employee) – Stillwater, OK – July 14, 2015
This home just cannot get it together! Grace corporate continually run bad management through, trying to find success. Current DON is NOT what is advertised above. Just like the others, pushes paper around and covers up any issue that will cause a tag and goes home. Turnover is huge and employees are constantly asked to work extra hours. Employees call in alot so when you work the load is extra because there is no help. Also, almost every pay day.......your check will be wrong!!! starting with your pay rate. Whatever you agreed to, it will be less, and they pretend it's a mistake until you try and quit over it before it's fixed! When the next shift doesn't show up you are just stuck until someone gets there. No on-call people to help when people don't show!
Most employees can get away with anything here, make your own schedule
Unreasonably huge workload, long hours, corrupt management
CNA (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – November 13, 2014
The only good thing about this company is the residents! Pay is terrible, scheduling is terrible, and management is terrible!!! Absolutely shortstaffed at all times!!!! There is no room for growth, no pay raises and terrible benefits!!! Management has no respect or appreciation for their employees!!!! Coworkers do not take care of the patients and are only there for a paycheck!!! Management is quick to walk around and tell you everything that you need to do but will not lift a finger to help you do it!!! Employees that don't do their job and no call no show have no consequences!!! Just all-around the worst job i've ever had!!!
no matter what you do you will not lose your job!!! which is ridiculous!!
absolutely everything!!!! especially management!!!!
Long term care administrator (Former Employee) – Stillwater, OK – May 5, 2016
They have a great Mission that they push to replicate on a daily basis. There commitment to Long Term Care is above excellent. They support each community and hold each and every resident to the highest regards.
HOUSEKEEPING,LAUNDRY (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – March 2, 2016
I would work on weekends in laundry and during the week in housekeeping.I had learned alot and got attached to the residents managment was great and co-workers wer awesome..The hardest part was working double weekends while I was pregnant
Charge Nurse (Current Employee) – El Reno, OK – October 1, 2014
Get report and hit the ground running take vitals, finger sticks, collect labs the Physician is requesting. Daily wound dressing changes, skin damage assessments, skin preventatives. Begin daily charting. Report to Physicians and Family of residents status or changes. I have learned time management is very important. I have the best co-workers uplifting, honest, and helpful. Hardest part of the job is when the residents die. Generally when they die there a part of your family. Taking care of the residents is the best part of job. Knowing that your a part of a team that makes there life better.
Quality Manager RN (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – November 4, 2015
My supervisor always made sure I had all the tools necesarily to get the job done. She would not mind to stop by my home and help in any way possible. This made me to see her as a team player more than a boss.
Dietary Aide (Former Employee) – Stillwater, OK – July 23, 2015
Dietary aides have varied responsibilities on the job. Aides prepare meals according to recipes, plan menus and interview patients about their diets. In nursing homes, they often note how much food a patient eats. They help track expenses and control the cost of food service for businesses and other institutions. Other common duties include helping plan special diets and planning or presenting nutrition educational programs for patients.
Horrible Dietary Manager and the nursing staff horrible with residents
Human Resources Director (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – September 8, 2012
A typical day was fast paced and full schedule of work. Co-workers were nice but difficult at times. Not alot of support. I learned alot about the plight of the elderly and disabled in this society. The hardest part of my job was conflict resolution and the easist part was my actual job description of payroll and accounting.
nurse (Former Employee) – jenks Oklahoma – August 4, 2014
Average shift length was 15 hours. Could not staff the facility and the result was impossible amount of responsibility, and all nurses were set up to fail, with disastrous consequences...the combination of long hours, short staff and huge patient load made working here a risk to anyone with a career. On top of all that...all nurses and supporting staff were expected to fill in and cover the staffing shortages. And they threw every employee under the bus that made a mistake in the environment that the administration created.
