certified nursing assistant (Former Employee) – League City, TX – January 12, 2016
I loved my job... AT FIRST. When I realized the political side of it, if you were cool with management you basically could half a** your job, show up whenever you wanted, or worse not show up at all, and still keep your job, I realized that this wasnt the place for me. When I continually made complaints I was told "Well if you want to leave, you're a dime a dozen, I can always hire another CNA." That showed me that they really didn't care about their employees.
Receptionist (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – December 3, 2015
Awesome work place with understanding and supportive management! They really care about their residents/patients which means a lot to me. I learned a lot from my co-workers as well which is great because Regent Care is a teaching facility!
Regent was a great place to work. I enjoyed the staff. I really enjoyed the patients.I miss my patients.The hardest part of the job was when a patient passes away.You really get close to a lot of the patients and thier families.
CNA (Current Employee) – League City, TX – September 8, 2015
Poor management, and too many law suits. loved working there at first, then started hating due to too much drama and management not knowing how to handle it and also way too many people were doing no call no shows and were still be allowed to keep there jobs.
CNA/PCA (Former Employee) – Houston,TX – May 31, 2015
My typical day at work provides patients' personal hygiene by giving bedpans, urinals, baths, backrubs, shampoos, and shaves; assisting with travel to the bathroom; helping with showers and baths. Provides for activities of daily living by assisting with serving meals, feeding patients as necessary; ambulating, turning, and positioning patients; providing fresh water and nourishment between meals. Management was very cordial about issue with patients but firm.
not enough pay of travel to client, no health benefits
Patient Care Assistant (Current Employee) – The Woodlands, TX – May 21, 2015
The moment I walk in as an employee is a disaster. LVN's don't know how to mange the schedule for CNA's. LVN's don't know how to distribute work appropriately. There is constant disagreements and arguments between fellow employees or co-workers. Constant shouting and screaming at other fellow employees in front of their face. The pay is horrible. I cannot make my payments for my basic needs as a human being because the pay is so horrible. The only good thing I can say about this place is there are a few residents I really enjoy taking care of when I go to work and they appreciate the work I do for them. They express their sincere gratitude with their kind words.
Certified Nurse Assistant (Current Employee) – el paso , Texas – May 21, 2015
a typical day at work would be; assisting residents with their daily routine. which is grooming , oral care, dressings, assisting with wound cares, assisting with toileting. etc. working at regent care Ive learned to be a team player , to work together as a team to get stuff done , and to multi- task, Ive also learned how to speak a little bit of Spanish working here at regent care center. the management here at regent care are strict , and nice and the facility runs very smooth with them. the hardest part of my job is dealing with seeing my residents depressed and sad. and them not being able to do for themselves. the most enjoyable part of my job is to help others and be there eyes and voice.
Dedicated to delivering excellence in health care for short term rehab and long term care.
Director, Social Services (Current Employee) – San Marcos, TX – July 26, 2014
My day includes doing assigned room rounds, seeing that residents have what they need and that there is nothing that could be harmful in their environment. Morning meeting and PPD review for discharges and MDS assessments. In the morning I see residents and family members who need assistance. I provide optometry, dental and podiatry appointments, document and investigate issues of missing property and other grievances. Discharge planning is a large part of my responsibilities, also providing hospice care and counsel for grieving families and staff. Losing residents I have been close to is probably the most difficult. I must stay strong and be there for family members and staff who are grieving that loss. The most enjoyable part of my job is advocating for a resident or family and having it turn out to be successful.
Social Work Volunteer (Current Employee) – San Marcos, Texas – June 5, 2014
Volunteering at Regent Care Center allowed me to learn what goes into managing a facility such as this. I helped with day to day administrative duties, however I was taught a lot about how to manage people and the rules and regulations of managing such an establishment.
Full Time Employee (Former Employee) – Reno, NV – March 5, 2014
The hardest part of the job is having to do with the residents privacy care but I enjoyed talking with them and getting to know them more, it interest me a lot. The Co-workers are friendly, most of them, and I enjoyed their company also. The management is great and neat, at least to me. I learned a lot from my previous supervisors and the co-workers too.
