Short staff. Would write you up if you didn't take a lunch break. Which would be hard to do. Due to not having enough staff. It was so busy we had to wait to the end of our shift to do patient charting. If we stayed over to do charting, we would be threatened that we would be written up. And if we didn't do our charting we would get written up. Some places might feed thier employees, however Brookdale would rather throw food in trash before feeding the staff. Heard the regional yell at the adon for simply calming an lpn during state. Having the same person work the cart for any call in. Could never reach the don at green mountain. Head of pt would always give dirty looks to floor staff and be short with families. Watched state write a complaint on her for a family that the ED ignored. No support, lack of training. Still currently here while looking for jobs since they require you to rotate weekends. When I was hired that was not the schedule agreed upon.

I left because the LVN was friends with the meds tech and letting them give patients the wrong meds and giving meds off the floor. The facility was full of drama they abused their patients by cursing them not feeding them there food saying oh well

I am a veteran RN with 30+ years of critical assessment and interventional experience with patients and families. I left after working 2.5 years for Brookdale. The last straw came when a transient DON in the home health dept slandered and abased me in an e-mail to the new incoming DON - a person I had not even yet had an opportunity to meet. It was made certain by another ‘stand-in’, a clinical manager, that I was cc’d to the degrading email. That event marked the end of a long 2.5 years of witnessing a 400% turnover in home health nurses, unheralded and unrewarded performance above and beyond my job description, countless lies, deception, and bullying. I have made the decision to never work there again, unless it could be proven to me that numerous changes had occurred to (1) reduce the chasms in communication, (2) improve employee satisfaction, (3) improve standards, means, and incentives for maintaining and retaining employees, (5) provide monetary rewards and regular increases in pay for all employees, exempt or hourly, and (6) cease from lying and taking elderly persons’ life savings to line the pockets of those who are at the top of this sham, all under the guise of “Compassion lives here every day” and a mission statement that is farcical.
