Cook/cna (Former Employee) – North Manchester, IN – February 7, 2017
The nursing management goes behind your back in order to satisfy their own needs. They have no care in the world for your personal life. Labor laws are not strictly enforced which should be a violation in itself. They force PRN employees to work beyond their mandatory days which defeats the purpose. They only follow their hand book during the "window" of time state officials can show up to survey the premises. Every staff member is trained to take their job seriously during this time but is very lienently watched throughout the rest of the year. The residents receives awesome care and awesome food, but behind the scenes of every other aspect is a joke. Avoid being employed here by all means.

coworkers was good. I kept busy with my pacients helping them bet ready for supper and bed. help with showers. Management was aweful at time they are working on improvement. the hardest part of the job was working with the dementia pacients. the enjoyable part is knowing each pacient personally
I worked at Peabody for over a year and loved my job
CNA (Former Employee) – north Manchester, IN – September 7, 2015
Even though I loved my job the constant headache of being short staffed and moved around to different units takes a toll. It doesn't matter if you are an awesome aid and loved by your nurses, and coworkers there seems to be no job security. In my opinion they are too quick to fire or run off the "good" help for minimal things but keep the terrible, lazy aides that have been there for a long time. They will work you to death but not ever want to work with you when it comes to your schedule. Horrible turnover rate. Fails to drug screen and needs to be more picky about who they hire. But like I said despite all this I did love my job at Peabody and especially loved my residents and coworkers.
Beautiful place:good standard of resident care
Terrible management, short staffing, no job security
Cook & CNA (Former Employee) – North Manchester, IN – January 28, 2015
I loved working here. I started out cooking, then I became weekend charge staff (Asst. Manager/weekends) and then I received my CNA certification. I was also head/chairperson of the Safety Committee. I felt so needed and appreciated when I worked here. I received a lot of awards and recognition for working so hard. I would get there at 5:15am and make breakfast for the residents, then I would clean up and get lunch started, I would then serve lunch, clean up and sometimes I would do CNA work until 10pm or so. The Safety meetings were once a month. Management was awesome from the CEO, Administrator to housekeeping .I had amazing coworkers as well. The hardest part of the job was falling in love with the residents and them getting sick or passing away. The most enjoyable part of the job was taking care of the residents.
good benefits, meeting people taking care of the residents

I worked for Peabody for 2 years. The management was awful and most of the staff was also. Resident care was the end of their list all that seemed to matter was how the building looked and money. I would never advise anyone to work for Peabody.
Clinical Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – North Manchester IN – September 27, 2013
I worked at Peabody for many years and had more CEO's, directors of Nursing, Administrators and other management than I can count. They are so focused on the look of the building that they forget about taking care of all of the Residents there. They are also very poor at drug screening and back ground checks....two things that should be a requirement for the healthcare field.
Clinical Nurse Educator (Former Employee) – North Manchester, Indiana – April 28, 2013
a day began with our jump start meeting to review residents. Throughout the day I walked throughout the facility monitoring, educating and assisting staff with resident care as well as proper techniques and proper infection control practices. When opportunities arose, I educated staff on IV insertion, phlebotomy and PICC line maintenance. I met with orientees and administered 1st and 2nd step Mantoux as well as completed physicals. I monitored for expiring TB and CPR certifications and held classes as needed. I reviewed pretty much daily the CDC and ISDH web sites for updates on flu viruses when in season and educated staff accordingly. The hardest part of the job was juggling all of the different responsibilities and ensuring all tasks were completed. The most enjoyable part of the job was the fact that I was challenged to do so. I also greatly enjoyed watching the staff learn and accomplish their goals they had set for themselves
CNA/Caregiver (Former Employee) – North Manchester, IN – April 19, 2013
My shift would start by checking with previous shift to see if there were any changes or concerns with any of the residents. Then go in to the dining room to assist with tray pass and feedings. Then it was time for residents to get comfy for the night so I would assist with showering, dressing, and transferring resident to their rooms and or bed. I would document using the Caretracker system. Then till morning I would answer and assist residents using a call pager. In the morning I would assist the residents that were ready to get up with showering, dressing, and transferring to wheelchair if needed. Ending my shift by speaking to the in coming shift about any changes or concerns with residents. As well as completing any needed documentation before going home. The hardest part of the job was all the management changes which made it difficult for the team to know who to turn to with concerns. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping my wonderful residents and the team I was working with.
wonderful residents, great nurses
very short breaks, under staffing, and management changes
