Working alone if I get real real sick I need to call 911 for myself. I call my program manager to let her or him know what’s going on. paramedics come for me before my pm or who ever is coming to cover my shift. Do I just leave With the paramedics? The individuals left alone. Heavy pressure in my chest.

No cost of living increases for the true professional positions. Hourly paid positions have had salary increases but salaried employees who are expected to be available to receive calls 24 @ 5 days a week and have vital roles and responsibility received lower than 50 cents increase in four years! But then their friends-favorites recieve increases and bonuses including those that are inexperienced with no education it or degrees but rub their noses!

The individuals are amazing! However, the turn-around staff is extremely high which leads to stress. No one is accountable for their actions and there is a lot of finger pointing from DSP’s and Management.

The most stressful part about working at Bethesda is watching the individual being neglected. The managers hire people that are not fit to work in the home and put them to work with the individual.

Management are unprofessional. They gossip about staff. They didn’t care about the individual that we support. They hardly visited the homes to check on the individual. They treat you badly if you are not one of their clicks. The Regional Administrator engaged the Q as her playmates and keep them in the office all day instead of checking on their assigned homes.
