highly demotivated staff in an unproductive work environment
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – 5000 Nannie Helen Burroughs Ave NE Washington, DC – August 7, 2018
Not a productive place to work, management staff lack soft skills and staff development is limited to punishment and job threat. Hence, there is a high staff turnover rate and a highly demotivated staff who do not like being there.
When I first started at this place, I was very excited to meet new people from all over. By the end of my race, I was drained, overworked, unappreciated, and just disgusted how the most dedicated workers are treated, not to mention the residents. Deanwood is not a clean place at all. We were short staffed just about every other day if not everyday. Although you’re there to do a job, at the end of your shift you were worn out like a dog. Sometime working 2 on a floor to 36 patients. Management could care less as long as they make it out the door on time it didn’t matter. They also don’t respect that you have a family outside of work, so to take off a day for your kids appointments or any personal reason of that matter would never be a smooth process. Its a no majority of the time unless you call out. The residents are not treated as they should be either. Just not a professional or good place to start a nursing career.

I typically enjoy my day in the workplace, what I enjoy the most is being productive and meeting deadlines. I enjoy my co-workers and the residents at Deanwood. I learn something almost everyday, whether its related to work duties or the residents. I appreciate the atmosphere and the diverse culture at Deanwood, it makes the job more interesting with managing the department. Learning what the supplies are used for along with what is productive. The hardest part of the job is not having the freedom to order quality supplies.

Deanwood Rehabilitation is a great facility. Management consistently teaches and inservices their employees. Patient care is their MAIN focus. Deanwood's Administration is constantly focused on their employees needs to better care for our residents. The Administration team recognizes it's outstanding employees monthly.

Certified Geriatric Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – August 10, 2017
Working here was a fun. I thoroughly enjoyed the diverse atmosphere. The hardest part of the job was getting attached to the residents and watching them either past on, or go home. The easiest part was taking care of them, although at times they had their bad days. Management was different from most other places I worked at, but fair.

I love my coworkers and my residents at Deanwood. Most of the staff is passionate about their work. The only problem is management is very unorganized. The good thing is the facility will employ you even with little or no experience. I have enjoyed my time at Deanwood.
