Float Nurse (Former Employee) – Front Royal, VA – June 4, 2017
you get it all here from pediatrics to geriatrics on their multi special unit, typical work days averaged 12-14 hours due to the volume of patients/ workload daily, management great to support staff and always looking for ways to keep staff happy, the charting could be hardest part of the day if things were hopping
Team Lead (Former Employee) – Front Royal, VA – August 9, 2013
Work day consisted of filing paper work, setting up patients breakfast, lunch, and dinner trays. Team Leads were also responsible for changing patients diet orders and ensuring proper safety and sanitation was being practiced in the kitchen. We also set up the cafeteria for breakfast and lunch service as well as set up and closed down the registers. Management was somewhat unorganized and had little resolve for working conditions. The hardest part of the job would be sitting for long periods of time and trying to understand the filing system/paper work. The most enjoyable parts were the interactions amongst patients.

Small comfortable environment, don't have that big company feel eventhough part of a larger health system. Can get to know everyone quickly and everyone works well as a team and cares about each other and their patients.
Southwest Airlines type of culture where individuals can easily make a big difference in the lives of patients and Residents of Friend Manor LTC
CEO (Current Employee) – Friend, NE – April 10, 2012
Each day brings an opportunity to interact with people from all walks of life. Management has an open door policy and roll up their sleeves to assist in any way needed. The hardest part of the job is finding financial resources to keep improving the facility, but visitors always comment about how clean the environment is. The most enjoyable part of the job include random acts of kindness and helpfulness to our elders who live among us and to patients stressed due to accidents and illness.
