CNA/CMA (Former Employee) – Woodward, OK – August 11, 2017
Show up on time to get report from the prior shift. Start by getting residents up and ready for their day, help with daily activities as need, document and report abnormalities to the charge nurse. provide saftey for resident and yourself, communicate with co workers and residents and their families, show compassion. You deal with different cultures. Very rewarding experience
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK 73139 – July 11, 2017
An uncontrolled work force with little care for its residents. Management are not supportive of their CNA's. CNA's can be expected to be taking on the responsibility of up to 9 residents at at time or more if someone calls in. There is no rotation to help preserve your physical well being and it is possible to be helping full assist residents for months before switching halls to more able residents. Many CNAs are clicky and rude. It is a hateful environment and no pay growth. The bathrooms are not modern and make resident care difficult. The rooms are not private and have roommate issues where they are confrontational with each other. The rooms are not modern and the CNA on duty can be expected to be doing a lot of unnecessary lifting and bending in the rooms. Find a more modern and well funded nursing home to work at because this one is grossly un-proficient and un-supportive to the idea of supporting a better state of living for its residents and a healthy environment for its employees.
pay, ability to work, ability to care, facilities are outdated, management are inept, nurses are unproductive, CNAs are ill equipped.

Good place to work but they can be short handed and that can be stressful. If fully staffed its a good place to work. Due to being short staffed sometimes its hard to get a lunch. Most of the employees are good and very helpful.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Jenks, OK – May 18, 2017
The facility in Jenks is horrible. The nurses are rude to residents, threaten them with staying in bed if they have behaviors, and are CONSTANTLY outside smoking. The CNAs are too busy gossiping, talking on the phones, etc to do quality work. During last state inspection they had numerous writeups for safety and health of residents. The unit managers are less than professional, but put on the necessary facade. I would think more than twice about accepting employment here.

My experience working at grace living center was rather stressful. Yes, the overtime was nice to have to an extent. However, they will ask you to work everyday- sixteen hour shifts even. Knowing you have children and a family at home and then get mad when you tell them no. They are more concerned with getting by if state comes through the door then they are providing the proper care for the residents.
You get overtime and the satisfaction of being able to care for someone

Very nice place to work. Residents are nice at times. I enjoy seeing the smiles on their faces and when the residents compliment me on my cooking. Workplace is very positive at times and dietary get along very well.
