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.

Poor patient continuity. Unrealistic patient caseloads with last minute assignments covering large metropolitan area for home health. Hired to cover northwest part of town paired with 1-2 PT’s. Management changed it to half of Denver, sometimes with no one Physical Therapist responsible for the patient due to staff turnover.
