Slave (Former Employee) – Central VT – June 27, 2014
Place was a crapshoot when I left. They hire anybody that'll fill a slot so don't feel to special. Prepare to be understaffed a lot and overwhelmed with lists of 14 people minimum, normally have to split another list because lack of staffing. Then get yelled at by nurses and residents for taking too long. Management is a joke and come and go as fast as brief changes. Bad bad bad...
Get right to work on getting my team together. Working out a plan on what needs to get accomplished for the day. The managers are all friendly and outgoing. The hardest part of my job is leaving at the end of the day. The most enjoyable part is interacting with the residents and seeing their rooms clean. I've learned from this job I've learned that these residents depend on us my team to make sure they have healthy, clean and safe living conditions.
I have a great group of employees, the managers lead very well.
I work with great people, but there is no advancement or job security
Revenue Cycle Field Analyst (Current Employee) – Middletown, CT – January 12, 2014
I travel to a different location every day. I didnt know skilled nursing billing when I started here so I leared a lot. I have had 4 Managers in the last almost 6 years. I work with great people, everyone is hard working and very cooperative. The hardest part of my job is motivating people. I am not their Manager, yet I need to lead them. The most enjoyable part of my job is the people I work with. I value them and appreciate everything they do.
Regional Partner Development Coordinator (Former Employee) – NJ – November 16, 2013
I enjoyed developing programs for the skilled nursing facilities. I partnered successfully with many hospital systems. My co-workers were very supportive and inspiring as we shared ideas and challenges daily. The most difficult part of the experience was the constant turnover of management. We endured with the changes until financial decisions eliminated our role.
Relationships I have made.
The facilities not being able to support the programs developed. ie. staffing issues.
This is the only place that I have ever worked where you can be hired fulltime, but having some of your days canceled and they would have a per diem rn cover your spot! Or you would report for work and would get pulled and again a per diem rn would be put in your place. If you should happen to be canceled, in order to be paid for that time you would need to use your personal time. If you take initiative as far as problem solving you get reprimanded because you are "not an rn" and "its not your job". Lpn's get relegated to passing meds and treatments. No room for advancement unless an rn. And they don't pay for experience, you get paid the same if your a new nurse or someone with many years experience.
worker (Former Employee) – surrey – September 9, 2013
management is bad, and upper management supports lower management. typical day is having bullying staff to deal with , and management supporting them. I learnt the staff have no sophistication. co-workers will do anything to intimidate an co-worker. Hardest part is dealing with the lack of support. most enjoyable is going home at end of day.
Manager (Current Employee) – Connecticut – September 18, 2012
Run by inappropriate management who have no compassion or know what they are doing. "Clique" run by top management in the facility make all the "good " workers fear for their jobs. Residents won't complain because they know their care will get worse. You can advertise anyway you want, but do you think you will change a bad reputation. Your problem is within and until you change the people that work for you running your facility with lie's and cover-ups, your Mission statement will not be honored or even used. It could be a great investment if the right people are hired to run the way it should be. Maybe you should look at some of the people who no longer work their and here their side of the story. The truth may astonish Canada,and the truth will eventually be known. Open up your eyes before its to late for the staff and more importantly the Residents. They ALL deserve better!!
if you join the clique because "they" allowed you to..your good to go
if you don't join the clique because you know its not good.. your done
Horrible place to work unless the INSIDE gets changed!!
manager (Current Employee) – connecticut – September 14, 2012
It could be a very nice place to work, but changes need to be done inside the facility. They can advertise anyway they want but when your inside workers are horrible,mainly at the "top" level, it won't work. Many of the staff are excellent yet scared of the "clique" which includes some of the upper management who run the place. Alot of good ppl have left or fired and for some it was a unwarranted dismissal. Maybe Canada should contact these ppl and get the truth!! What you are told on paper or by a phone conversation isn't always how it went down! You want to make money then start running your facilities right. Whats pretty on the outside should be the same on the inside not covered up. The hardest part of the job is the Residents. They are the ones who suffer getting poor care, uncompassionate ppl working on them, and cannot fight for themselves. Canada start checking your homes out! Start standing by your Mission Statement!!!!!!
there are good workers, all levels, who really care.
to much dishonest and rotteness inside that does not get seen.

RN (Current Employee) – Waterbury, CT – June 21, 2012
Very cliquey and if your not a part of it you will be gone. A good cleaning out would be a big help if the top corp would listen. It starts from the top to the bottom. The good people walk around scared. Some of the nsg is very good but not enough. some cna's are good but not enough. The top needs to go. The care is horrible and yet the state allows it yet if they were unannounced maybe they would see what really goes on. If the top corp were more involved maybe their statement of care, integrity would be true.
Worked for skilled nursing facility where there is a rapid turnover of staff nurses. The quality of care is poor & I can't imagine how the state allows this facility to continue. RNs are harrassed by this core group of LNAs. They take no direction & give the least amt of care that they can get away with. They run the facility and are like a pack of wolves. Management is inexperienced & unsupportive to nurses. They come & go like a revolving door. Administration arrives periodically & eliminates anyone who is competent. Patients are terrorized by LNAs & administration.
