Ensure that management nurse team is more involved with floor staff and promotes team work. My experience was they want the title and the paycheck but don’t want to earn it. Like to sit in offices and look at food menus most of the day and plan their social life while gossiping about their co-workers

Attempt to work with the ancillary staff instead of insulting them continuously. Not Allowing management team to degrade staff infront of residents and other staff. New management team at Brookale Antelope Valley would sure improve the enviornment. .

More training for the Executive Directors on how to handle all situations including employees and how to build teams withing the community. Regionals doing a complete investigation into employee complaints and not ignoring employees with serious situations going on in the community. Bottom line is the employees need to be heard and taken serious so that they dont feel unappreciated so that they can make the environment around them for the clients and peers less stressfull. When employees feel heard and appreciated they will do whatever it takes to make the place they work for succeed. Brookdale needs to stop making it about numbers out loud. With the understanding that numbers do matter but keep that private and show the employees that brookdale does care and appreciate them as well. After all the employees are what keeps the business successful. Miserable employees bad for business happy employees happy business.

Management needs to focus on what the rules are. For instance don’t tell me I’m mandated 5 minutes before my shift is over. Employee should be given at least and hours notice if not the employee calling in should be wrote up. Pay is just about the lowest given in this field.
