I know this a business to make money but it should always be about the patient’s and residents. Make sure there is enough staff to care for them and make it mandstory for all RN’s to be on call for pt. Care when CNA staffing is to low.

If you want to know why your liverpool facility has such a high turnover take a look at your management team. They are a team that I intimidates workers talks about workers and critisize you never any positive feedback always negative. It's a horrible facility that is full of negativity and it will never change until you change your management team in the front office. They know about the situations and do nothing they care only for their fat paychecks.

I have worked at the Brockport home before Elderwood bought it. I loved the close knit family feel among staff and managment, but now it is cold, punitive, awful benefits that leave you paying hundreds of dollars in bills if you go to a Dr. . In total I have worked here for seven years, before and after being bought and the new hires, even without experience, make more then i do. I was told pretty much to take it or leave. I need this job but the job I loved is now the job I hate.

Listen to the employees. The ones that count.nthe ones that are treating the residents which are for the most part CNA's and Activities Assistants. They get the brunt of everything and the less in pay. Th nurses do just what they are told to do and there are just a few who step up to the plate and help out

Pay your employees what they are worth. Pay is horrible but I am sure that's because management gets all the benefits.

Listen to the employees without them you wouldn't have a building DON and administrator and supervisor cannot make you money it's the people doing the hard work at the bottom. GI has had a turnover of at least a hundred people in a year start listening to the staff and get rid of the bullies in management we're supposed to work as a team not get in trouble every time we turn around and get fired for the smallest things I used to work there I love the place the way it used to be we are no longer a family we have no say and we definitely are not paid and appreciated
