Pros: hours and pay was decent
Cons: communication and lack of leadership
The facility itself is wonderful. The staff was mostly great to work with with the exceptions of a few, but no place is perfect. HR was reasonable, the training was adequate, social services and the therapy dept did good work. The problem with this facility is really 2 or 3 folks who happen to be in areas of power. The director of nursing has never taken the time to learn what the nurses or aides do on a daily basis, is untrained on the computer system so unable to assist when needs would or could arise and rarely has been seen speaking to its residents. His 2nd in command on day shift is equally as ineffective. This person's sole job is to assist the nurses in day to day activities, however this person spends more time creating nonsensical tasks for many employees that there is ever opportunity to assist the nurses with true issues or emergencies. Both are nice people personally but inappropriate for the roles they were given. Communication from leaders to staff is poor at best and the reason many are leaving. A facility is only as good as its leaders and unfortunately at the hands of really 2 or 3 individuals this facility is not up to par. I am grateful for getting to work with wonderful nurses and other staff because they are all truly there for the right reasons, but couldn't work for such unorganized leaders, too dysfunctional for me.
