Beware
RN (Former Employee) –  Lake City, FLMay 21, 2016
Beware of this company. Low pay for Nurses. They always have an ad online because they can't keep anyone. They bypass Nurses with clinical experience only to hire new RNs that run for the hills during the first week. I guess it's a smart business tactic, as new Nurses don't cost 1/2 as much as an experienced RN. Don't waste your time. It's a mean girls network who only hire their friends. Sadly, the patients suffer.

It can be a productive place!
CNA (Former Employee) –  Haines City, FLJune 17, 2015
This place can be a productive place to work but to much gossip. You have a few nurses and cna's that's very lazy and keep up drama along with the DON and ADON and secretary! I love working with the kid's that had medical issues it was an awesome experience for me that's the only thing that kept me there for 2 year. It felt like the kid's are in jail for hours unless we take them outside. No learning only tv if it works that day. This place needs somebody to run it correctly and a person that's not only about money but somebody who really cares about these kids. If you work here just do your job and leave.
Pros
Long lunches, Holidays off, work 1 Saturday a month
Cons
Pay Sucks, no benefits

I would not ever work for this company again.
Pediatric PLN (Former Employee) –  Hammond, LAMarch 23, 2015
Pediatric Health Choice is based in another state where they only seem to be interested in MONEY. I have worked in other Pediatric clinics that have the patients best intrest in mind . This company has the practice of grouping all there patents together in one large room .It is like a zoo, where everything is mayhem and this is dangerous for the more fragile patients . I have witnessed patients pulling out other patients G. Tubes ,and Vent tubing . I have seen management put on a "Dog and Pony Show " (That is what Management called it. ) for prospective patients family. They would have someone reading to a group. Others doing organized physical activities and such ,but the only time I saw this was when " someone was coming to check us out". My Nursing License is very important ,and so are my patients . I will not work somewhere that constantly endangers there patients and does not really care .

horrible place to work.
RN (Former Employee) –  Daytona Beach, FLFebruary 16, 2015
Basically a day care for children with medical problems, but the children are not cared for. When children come in with massive bruising you are told you cannot do anything. I went into this job with such a positive attitude and ran away as fast as I could when I saw what went on there. Horrible place.
Cons
no breaks and horrible corporate office.

This place is nasty and the people in leadership are sneaky. It's all about money. Please do not go to work there if you want to keep your license.
RN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) –  Tampa, FLDecember 8, 2014
Don't waste your time. It's true they do have roaches crawling. They care nothing about the children welfare.
When the aids do not do there job the nurse is responsible. We change crib sheets, we get the kids on and off the bus, we feed them. If the kids leave a item in the center the nurse has to take it to there house. If the parents are not home during the time of drop off they return the kid to the center and the nurse has to stay until the parent picks them up. If it's not enough kids for the day a nurse is sent home without pay. You could have up to eight kids. Paper work, paper work, paper work. There are kids who should be in school and they refuse to move them on and educate the families. All about the Benjamin's.
Cons
you are still working while on lunch.

Stay away
CNA (Current Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FLNovember 26, 2014
this job has the potential to be a great job if only have the right management in place on fortunately the administrator is very unstable and very unprofessional she thrive off rumors and drama, you never know which personality you're going to run into or expect from day to day which makes doing your job and a trusting issues on the job very difficult. The ADON is no better she's very narcissistic and allows her a thority to go to her head she's also very spiteful and petty if you develop a great sweetheart look out she's going to do her best to get you back! As for the CNA's and nurses a lot of the CNA's tensed gossip whisper behind your back and they love to tell every little thing in order to look good in the eyes of the administrator or the nurse manager, I'm a joy to have investors are very lazy and don't want to do anything outside of paperwork. If you choose to work here consider yourself WARNED
you will be you devalued and underappreciated, they will lie to you at a drop of a hat just to suit their own needs they are very self serving
Pros
this place has the potential to be the dream job it's only have to write management
Cons
everything!

Fast-Paced working environment taking care of special needs children
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) –  Ocala, FLNovember 26, 2013
I get to work and immediatly start cooking breakfast for all the children. Feed the ones who do not know how to feed themselves , wash dishes, clean kitchen , then follow up with circle time teaching the children there letters and colors. Then immediatly after cook lunch feed the ones who cannot feed themselves clean up wash dishes put children down for nap. The hardest part of my job is witnessing the needs of the children ages ranging from 1-20 the most enjoyable part is knowing I have a impact on these children and can teach them something.

Not a good company
home health nurse and in the medical day facility (Former Employee) –  tampa, flOctober 9, 2012
Does not pay well. Can make more working in home health taking care of one patient compared to the amount of patients they have you care for. Managment is aweful. Worried more about bringing money in than they are about patient care.
Pros
the children
Cons
the pay is horrible. the managment is aweful.

Staff LPN (Former Employee) –  Daytona Beach, FLOctober 2, 2012
Enjoyed working with disabled children and coworkers. However the observation of management is less than honorable.! The nurse patient ratio is not always state regulated and the manager is skillful to disguise it.
Pros
holidays and weekends off.
Cons
kids who need speech therapy should be reffered out due to speech therapy not available at center.
