Marc Walker administrator has ruined the place. Lies to family members and staff. Makes promises he has no intentions of following through with. Under pays CNAs who always work short. Friends with certain staff outside work, crossing professional boundaries. Very smooth talker nothing more

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

Your administrative staff should be HELPING the floor staff, not harassing and underminding them. the favoritism is ridiculous on GI, and it is very frustrating to work for a company whom doesn't take the patients best interest to heart

Stop cutting corners and trying to save money. Provide your nursing staff with an improved wage....like you said you would...and treat them like they are valuable members of the facility. Not like they are know nothing buffoons.
