Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Clarence, NY – March 11, 2018
A typical day at Brothers of Mercy was very challenging depending on which assignment you had for that day. It can be very challenging but I adapt to my surroundings and go with the flow. I had to assist residents and patients with daily activities and complete administrative tasks, such as answering phone, taking and recording vitals, as well as observing and monitoring behaviors.
Being able to meet new people and provide them with the quality of care that they deserve.
DIETARY AIDE (Former Employee) – Clarence, NY – March 4, 2018
Started out as a good place to work with flexible hours, however management changes led to being disrespected and not treated fairly. Short staffing made it difficult to keep up with the amount of work.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Clarence, NY – January 26, 2018
They provide great care for patients. Treat their employees terribly. Employees are very unfriendly. I had 3 deaths in my family while I was employed there. The scheduling lady asked me how many deaths are you going to have. Which was very rude of her!

I worked at Brothers for 2 1/2 years. Great benefits, great pay, excellent nurse manager, but the rest of the staff are back stabbers. You can’t trust anybody - they will get you in trouble in a heartbeat anytime they can. The long time employees just don’t take well to new people.
Charge Nurse (Former Employee) – Clarence, NY – October 14, 2017
Work here if you desire: Aides who dont do their job, criticism when you report it, management who are quick to put people on roxanol/ativan, management who castrate you over a missed initial in the mar or tar and then talk about you to other staff, computerless mars and tars (stone age), and employees who are miserable and unhappy. I left this place when I started to see all this. They are a 5 star facility because they dont admit people with large existing wounds or major heath issues, not because of the care they provide.
Certified Nurse's Assistant (Former Employee) – Clarence, NY – February 16, 2017
I started off in the Dietary department and worked my way up to a CNA. lots of room for advancement.. I bathed, toileted, dressed, feed, spent one on one time, did daily reports, etc.. The hardest part was getting attached to residents and watching them pass. It was extremely gratifying getting to know a resident and what they did through out life.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Clarence, NY – December 26, 2016
I like working here, the pace is good and the training is adequate. I like that they are not focused 100% on finances, like some other places. the quality of care is really good and they thank us and reward us more than other places that I have worked.
Good pay for a nursing home, close to home
could be stressful and demanding with the families
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Clarence, NY – August 23, 2016
I did have fun but a lot of the staff did not want to get a long or help others out. I feel like the scheduling was unfair. Once I had a serious family emergency and they did not let me leave and thought they handled it uprofessional.
eye opening look at real life,rewarding to be there to someone in their time of life
