Company did not care for staff concerns or the safety of their residents.It was all about the almighty dollar.Started as a floor nurse then building supervisor and finally nurse educator in my 17 years with Genesis.EverythingI earned was partially if not permanently taken back.Four weeks vacation taken back to threeYearly raises capped till you were no longer eligible for a raise just a review. Forced to donate to company employee relief fund or be ridiculed in morning meeting by administrator and DON. Also told that it was expected you would freely give extra hours every week without compensation or face reprisal.When there was call outs no replacements allowed and you would be told it was the fault of your peers that you were short staffed so deal with it. That is just a few things ga I could go on forever

Because management is the worst! You will get whiplash with all the inconsistencies! The real issues and/or staff were never addressed- usually due to playing favorites, for I don't know what reason, while the ones who work hard and ethically, and are told a different thing by each supervisor/unit manager/ADON/DON & then do that "something" the way one of them said to do--most likely will get you written up. I guess if you don't kiss their bums or have the same hair cut and 4th grade level humor and maturity- ya might get unrightfully targeted! Oh, and lastly, the biggest reason I left is because when you find yourself constantly in fear about having your own license on the line- PLUS- feeling like every single ethical bone in your body is tested on a daily basis due to poor equipment, poor staffing, and really just all around poor priority of all things involving the patient; their care,& their safety- it is time to run!!! I wish I could have taken all the residents with me, they certainly deserve much better.
