I was an LVN Case Manager for "Talbert" at the Anaheim office and was treated very well, however, a lot of work but backup with Utilization and LCSW. I wanted to come back and work as a case manager, but they won't "allow" lvns which I don't understand having the background that I do. I left California for two years and back looking for work. I'm sorry you are having so much trouble there now that it is Healthcare Partners and maybe I'm lucky they won't hire Lvns after reading this!

My wife was just "terminated" for apparently not knowing how to finish "tasks" and not knowing what to do once one was completed. She came to HCP with over 10 years of medical assistant experience. Her immediate supervisor at the Pasadena, CA location did the same thing. Never in the 8 years that I have been married to my wife did she ever come crying about the way her immediate supervisor bullied her, initimidated, and took advantage of her. She received a write up stating she was not performing her tasks correctly because she was misspelling words. They never trained her properly, according to them, training her meant she had to follow people around and learn that way and when she would ask for help her supervisor would tell her "why are you asking too many questions...you should know this by now..." So apparently after working their 4 weeks of no formal training she was expected to know everything. She was told she would be trained on software check in of patients but it never happened according to the way they described it would happen. Supervisor retaliated against my wife and because she went to director to discuss the intimidation. My wife was thrown into working with Dr.'s 2 weeks into her being there with no help and no training. She had to sink or swim. Note, she was great with patients, no complaints there. It was a coincidence that when a pregnant girl came back from leave, my wife was terminated a week later.

Speaking from experience of working within the management of HCP - one cannot entrust them as far as you can throw a stick! Management thrives on crushing "subordinates" and is willing to destroy reputations to uphold their positions. You are not valued here, you are slowly destroyed. I am sure not all HCP sites have hostile work environments, but some do - and this seems to be an encouraged type of behavior. Recommend finding a place where you will be respected, trusted, and treated as a team member rather than crushed.
