Ashamed. They were anxious to hire me (a little too anxious in retrospect) right out of nursing school. The nursing management don't care about your professional development, so long as they have a warm body to fill the slot. The facility is in dire need of a complete overhaul, upgrade. It hasn't been remodeled in what looks like 50 years. Several of the call lights wouldn't work for the residents while I worked there, so this was embarrassing when families would bring in a new admit, and their loved one couldn't call for help. Nursing helped serve in dining room, and I had several complaints from residents about the food being cold, or tasting terrible. I felt bad for them. A couple did leave for greener pastures, stating: "This place is a dump" and such n such facility is so much nicer." When I would hear this I'd hang my head thinking, yeah it would be nice to work someplace in which I could take pride, and not be ashamed to tell family and friends who are nurses too, that I work there. I wish I had taken more time to look around for a job. I feel sorry for the residents who remain there. There are a few decent nurses there, that treat each other well, night shift is a good team. However, I was hazed and bullied by the other shifts. A couple of them even stalked me on social media.

Mostly embarrassed. The Hutchinson location is a total dump. Mold, crumbling drywall, bugs, water leaks galore, It's beyond shabby. For what they charge the residents you'd think they could at least have heat and A/C that works, walls that aren't literally disintegrating, and a hot meal.
Additionally, management is hostile and incompetent as are most of the nurses and aides. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. To live there or work there.
