Not all its cracked up to be.
aid (Former Employee) – eugene, or – January 4, 2013
The bottom line is money. I don't think anyone has had more than a 2% raise ever. Management wants to work as little as possible, while still keeping up with OSHA and CARF standards. They charge the residents for every petty little thing, a roll of toilet paper cost $5 for residents. Recently a CNA was fired because she was pregnant. The DNS asked her to directly to perform some heavy lifting knowing she was pregnant, when she asked co-workers for help the DNS called her into her office and told her that if she couldn't perform her job than she couldn't work here. There is also very little advancement especially for lower level employees. This nursing home has chain of hatred were the DNS is mean to the Nurses who are then grouchy and mean to the CNA's, sort of thing that happens at other nursing homes. You also have to clock out for your lunch break, and you rarely get your 15 min breaks.
no advancement and high turnover.
