Scheduled patient's appointments, also retrieved documents from patient charts to send to doctor's office. Put schedules out on the different floors of the patients for doctors and nurses. Made doctors aware of patient appointments and follow ups.
I had 10 yrs experience as a CNA and they still gave me the starting pay.They are always low on staff, so you will have to stay over rather you have family responsibilities or not, meanwhile they are almost never hiring. The nurses treat their CNAs with little respect and they play favorites. As soon as you learn what is expected of you they will change it, so yeah, your license is always at risk. People will always try to find anything to make you get fired or in trouble which I will never understand due to the lack of help. Too much drama for sure.
Starter Job not Forever Job, Beautiful waiting Area
Biller (Current Employee) – Norcross, GA – September 28, 2017
This company's policies are not with the employees but with the dollars you can bring in. There's never any money in the budget to give raises not even a cost of living increase. Each year the cost of living goes up, your health insurance costs go up but your pay remains the same, a few pennies more at best. You get no paid holidays except for christmas day and that's if it falls on a week day. Whenever they decide to close the office you have to use YOUR PTO hours. Upper management seperates themselves from their subordinates as if they are lower class. This is an everyperson for themself type of place. I must say however, there are a fistful of caring managers.
High healthcare, low pay, non matching 401k, No paid holidays
LPN charge nurse (Former Employee) – Augusta, GA – August 31, 2017
I enjoyed working at pruitt. I have relocated to continue my education in nursing and had to leave my job in Augusta GA.The work environment at Pruitt is fast paced and a lot of responsibility, multi-tasking and time management are a necessity.
Senior Systems Analyst (Former Employee) – Norcross, GA – August 13, 2017
The pay was competitive if it was a 40 hour a week job. However when working 50 to 60 hours a week on top of being on call daily the salary should have been much higher. Poor vendors made the job harder than it should have been.
Friendly department environment.
Software Vendors were not easily available to contact. Company changed rules on the fly
I ended my job there in 2007 so I hope a lot of changes have been made. However, during that time there was a hostile workplace full of discontentment; which directly affected the well being of the residents who totally depended on the staff for the care. The company's other buildings did not have the same dark shadows over it, as a matter of fact I love the company; however the building in Columbia, SC has always had issues, in spite of the company doing well in many other facets.
Care Manager (Former Employee) – Norcross, GA – July 13, 2017
There are things this company does really well, but the Atlanta home health branch could never seem to get it together during the more than five years I worked there. We would get assurances that it would get better, but it never did. Staffing was continuously an issue and the clinicians who were faithful were stretched thin. Clinician can feel pressured to admit patients even if there doesn't seem to be a plan for who will be able to carry out the plan of care.
Unit Manager, RN (Current Employee) – Durham, NC – July 10, 2017
Having worked at Pruitt Healthcare, I can see there is potential. Like all Skilled Nursing Facilities there is room for improvement. The corporate edict is one that promotes that the customer is always rights, but is is tight with the purse strings. I work in a multi level facility, but my floor has no scale. I have asked the EA for one for 4 months with the response" I'm working on it" and still no scale. As a member of management, I do fight for my and promote/fight for my staff, but feel I have let them down down due to "budgetary concerns". I would stop short of steering dedicated healthcare providers away, but I would advocate doing your homework on the facility you are considering.
CNA (Current Employee) – Athens, GA – July 8, 2017
I enjoyed the job for months but now I feel there is not family feeling seems as if Its not the place I want to be they don't care for there workers and it makes me feel you can't feel secure on your job after all you do.
DHS (Former Employee) – Greenville, GA – June 28, 2017
The company does no practice their mission statement. They talk the talk but does not walk the walk. There is discrimination and harrassment on the job. Critical short staffing that puts licensed staff at risk as well as resident safety at risk. Resident activities is non existent! Bullying from management and corporate staff happens daily. No training centered for DHS
