Receptionist (Former Employee) – Utica, NY – June 21, 2017
As a receptionist all eyes are on you, as long as you're nice and don't talk down to people, the job is easy and goes by pretty well. Can't stress enough to keep an open and clear mind emergencies happen at a nursing home, and every one will look at you for guidance, even those who are higher than you position wise.
Holiday dinners weren't bad, maintain good relationships with the different departments and you'll get free food all the time.
Long boring hours, working all day Christmas and new years or even thanksgiving can be taxing on your personal life
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Globe, AZ – July 27, 2016
Monitored, assessed and performed nursing interventions for 20 assigned patients every shift. Managed coordination of patient assignments and staffing needs. Experienced in delegation of appropriate tasks to LPN’s, CNA’s and unlicensed employees.
Not a good experience. I was underpaid in comparison to other Healthcare facilities. Very under appreciated as a professional and zero chance for pay raise. Atmosphere was not at all a healthy place to work. Steer clear.
consultant (Current Employee) – utica, ny – February 13, 2016
I work here frequently as a consultant, and am always pleased when I see assignment here come up on my agenda. I would gladly relocate here if I didn't have two teenagers; once my son graduates, I will consider it seriously. Any local talent who are considering working for Heritage healthcare, please don't let the historical reputation of the past administrations and nursing leadership sway you; this is a bright new day for Heritage.

This company is a great company to work for. a lot of room for advancement with this company. Every one is great to work with and a very good learning experience for anyone that is in an entry level position with the company.
Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Utica, NY – November 17, 2014
A very diverse job with many challenges that make it interesting and a learning experience. The individuals were able to care for themselves, or up to total care. It was hot in the summer and cold in the winter, due to an old building. There was a shortage of staff and no permanent staff on the unit I worked on. Inservice was poor- I had 3 days training before being on my own. The first day was someone who floated and couldn't answer the unit questions I had, the second day was a agency nurse who had never been there before, and the third day was the nurse I would work opposite of- he couldn't answer my questions due to limited understanding of the English language, or didn't know the answers
resident's very friendly ;easy to get along with staff, learned alot on care of resident's and on customer care of clients.needs alot of improvement on management as they dont get along with the staff to well.The hardest part of the job was trying to get along with the other staff from different parts of facility.I really enjoyed working woth the elderly clients they were fun to talk to.
no lunches;short breaks or no breaks, poor managament
The atmosphere was that of a family with co-workers and residents.
Staff nurse/charge nurse (Former Employee) – Globe, AZ – October 31, 2012
I often would teach 4-8 hours a day, and otherwise I was upgrading teaching material, gathering information on infection control, assisting the floor nurses with IVs, blood draws and so forth. I got to know some residents very well, bacause they were there for years and that was very rewarding. I got along well with my management and felt I could talk to them whenever necessary. For the most part, we have long-term, dedicated staff and all respect each other and the importance of each others' jobs. The hardest part of the job was sometimes not having enough time to update classes and get reports ready for monthly meetings due to cuts in hours of work depending on number of patients that day or week. I loved the residents and getting to know them and working somewhere long enough to really have good relationships with co-workers.
working for a company with good business ethics.
working for a company that burdened us with redundant paperwork, and regulations above and beyond what the state and federal government requires.
