CNA (Current Employee), Oklahoma City, OK – November 13, 2014
Pros: no matter what you do you will not lose your job!!! which is ridiculous!!
Cons: absolutely everything!!!! especially management!!!!
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 – more... 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!!! – less
It was a nice place to work and I enjoyed taking care of my clients.

nurse (Former Employee), jenks Oklahoma – August 4, 2014
Cons: no breaks, bullying, working staff to exhaustion
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 – more... 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. – less
The most enjoyable part of my job were the residents. Being in a long term facility it was as if the residents were part of your family.

Pros: paid holidays.
Cons: there weren't very many cons to the job. overall i really enjoyed my job, the residents, and my coworkers.
As a long term care facility the residents become a part of your family. You really get to know your residents, A typical day at work was for me to check on my skilled and VA residents to see how they were doing and see if there were any issues that needed to be addressed. I would meet with the therapists each morning to talk about progress with the – more... skilled residents, also to determine if they planned to stay at facility long term or if they planned on going home. If they planned on going home, I made sure Home Health was in place for the date and time that was convenient for the resident, make a follow up appointment with residents primary physician, help resident with any equipment such as oxygen, bedside commode, etc. was in place before returning home. I balanced doing MDS assessment with care plans. At lunch, I helped with the residents that could not feed themselves and helped supervise all residents. – less

CNA/HHA (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OK – April 15, 2014
I'm a people person, so working in corrections was a good experience for me. Everyday was something different. Supervising inmates was very easy for me to do because of my strong personality.
