Social Services Assistant, Saint Petersburg, FL - December 22, 2014
When I started at this company I was told so many things that turned out to be flat out LIES. I was told this was a stable company that took good care of its employees and that it had a patient-centered culture. I was told the corporate management was planning on making many improvements to their facilities. About a month after I started, I realized this company was all about money. They could care less about their residents. First of all, during my time with this company my facility had approximately 8 administrators, 3 DONs, 4 MDS Coordinators, and just about all of the floor staff came and went after a few months. I personally witnessed many nurses walking off of the job and the DON and ADON begging them to stay. I also personally witnessed corporate management yell at our social worker for discharging residents to other facilities when the social worker was only doing their job! They were so mean to the social worker, they ended up walking off of the job. Oh and they hired a replacement while the social worker was on an approved vacation (prior to them walking off the job). Is that even legal? What kind of company does that? Needless to say after doing a simple google search to look up the company I found it has a history of unethical behavior and was ordered to pay nearly $1 million in a Medicare fraud case brought against them and now they are being monitored by the FBI. Unfortunately, this company has not been shut down yet even though it needs to be. I got out as soon as I could. DO NOT WORK FOR THIS SLEAZY COMPANY! YOU WILL REGRET IT! CONSIDER THIS A WARNING!
