Paducah LCCA do not have competitive wages...infact new hires get more money then those who work there for a hire. I see LCCa pat LPN 19.28hr Paducah starting pay is 17.00. Unless your a new hire. They don't give raises or incentives. They worry about their quarterly bonus. Under staff no CNA always shirt but on paper looks fully staff. Star rating went from a 4 to a 2!! Even resident are tired of not having enough help. They may offer a bonus for picking up an extra shift but if you call in sick they take ALL your bonus time away for that pay period that you have worked already worked.
They have the Flu quarantine just April and May and had close each section down any nurses that were diagnosed with flu and couldn't come to work they make you pick those days up as mandatory for missing?
Building is always clutter. Unprofessional in management staff. They only time they worry about team work is when state comes in then they allcome out of their offices to pass meal trays. They never thank you personally for your help...in fact the DON or Administrator never walk on the floor smiling or talking to staff unless of course your in their cliche group. They make promises to resident and family member just to get them in the doors only to find they have lied. They hire CNA to work in let position without having the experience or credentials that qualify them except to kiss their butts. They have dropped in censuses and they are planning to build a new facility. Building is unprofessionally dirty. They gave black mold and a asbestos. Resident may share bath room between 4 residents. Aids do not work as a team. The disrespect the nurses. They been know to come to work under the influence as well as nurses. Medications are always made and they continue to employee or rehire those that they have previously fired. They serve the same snacks to the resident each day. They show favoritism to only the upper crust by choosing them for monthly awards for whatever it takes. Never have supplies or equipment that is needed. They hire husband and wife to work together. They always want to blame corporate for anything that they say no to. Their fall ratio is high due to being under staff. They have a few nurses the care. Others that are burnt out and never get reprimanded for their unprofessional conduct. Nurses and aids that uses foul languages as well as management. Corporate and state needs to review and audit fictitious records. Management is aware of under staffing but doesn't care. Do your own personal tour before interviewing see for yourself how management and staff are dealing with residents family members or treating each other. It's really ashamed that the have allowed a 4 star rating decline to 2 stars. It's again falls back on management not taking accountability for the facility and resident care. Cna only stay a day or two in orientation then don't return why? That a good questions. Why do they rehire those they have fired previously? Do your own research first. Why do they blame Corporate? Why are they paying hires mire than those who been employed longer or gave just recently hired? Why does the DON and Administrator never seen or interacting with staff members? Why are things different in policy and procedures not reflecting throughout the facility? Why is there others a high turnover rate? ? Why did they go from a 4 star facility to 2 stars? Who is corporate? Why do they hire a sitting service that sleeps all night instead of watch the resident they are sitting with or help with the needs of the Resident? Why does the nursing team seem drained and tired? Why are the census down? Why do they accept behavior problematic residents? Why isn't the facility not cleaned thoroughly? Why is dietary, laundry, and maintenance not fully staffed and working fulltime? Why is management not being held accountable? Why are equipment and supplies not being maintained and purchased as required? Why are the doors at night not being locked? Why are employees being caught stealing, being under the influenced, and BULLYING one smothered allowed? Why does management not keep whistle blowers confidential but instead say thus is what your co-workers think about you and show them the list of names that reported them? Why is payroll never right? Differential time is never correct? Why are bonus taken away? Where is management support? Why is disrespect and cursing allowed from every spectrum? Why us it difficult to get doctors to return calls within the same day? Why is BULLYING acceptable between the resident tolerated? Why is BULLYING accepted from nursing staff among each other? Why are promises made that are misleading from admissions, residents, and nursing? Why us night shift given recognition as the day shift? Why isn't yearly evaluations done? Why doesnt unit managers have an open door policy? Never take things for face value at Parkview.

Report answer

Toxic work environment due to understaffing and employees treated horribly. There are hardly any CNAs to help with proper resident care as well as being understaffed. Morale is low and physical- mental exhaustion is a daily problem.

Very diverse and work environment depends on the numbers of people we had in the facility. Some days are slow but can pick up at anytime.
