CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Hamburg, NY – January 9, 2019
I was excited to earn my CNA. However, once I started working here I realized how bad this employer truly is. Elderwood at Hamburg is understaffed and treats the staff very poorly. Staff are only paid minimum wage and their raise only includes the new minimum wage. CNA to patient ratio is 1:20 on a good day.

Elderwood of Hamburg , was a great exsperence for my first time in working in the nursing home setting.Some of the nurses where amazing and treated you like a team player , and other nurses treated you like you where beneath them. We where always short staffed on 2-10 shift , and some of the aids where disrespectful to each other and some where just plain lazy at times.Management was very political at times .
Home Health Aide (HHA) (Former Employee) – Hamburg, NY – August 6, 2017
The best part of the job was working with the residents of the assisted living facility and watching them be discharged to home. The hardest part of the job was watching the deterioration of residents, their admission into a nursing facility or their death.

Very good company to work for. They are very on hand with patient care, staff. Very good team work. Management is excellent. It is a very fast paced enviroment, however with the team players you work with it makes it all for a good day.
LPN (Former Employee) – Hamburg, NY – April 3, 2017
Productive place with high standards. Work with qualified personel that enjoys their work and interacts with their work mate. Very busy all day time goes by fast, I have learned how to interact with the residents and to assess their needs. Management is helpful with the tasks at hand and has classes for needed information on new tasks. The most enjoyable part of the job is making every one's day more enjoyable. When starting your day the last shift will inform you of what is needed to be done first in case a resident became ill on their shift so you know what you should focus on first. Teamwork is very important and that is what is expected for a good day at work. I have learned how to work with the staff to make the job more productive
Perks like free lunches when you go over and above job duty
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Hamburg, NY – May 15, 2017
Unprofessional, lack of individual attention to the needs the residents. Lack of reporting accidents and incidents in a timely matter where it wouldn't impact the overall health of the resident themself.
