The team i worked with was great and everyone helped each other. Fast paced, as any hospital would be, but the day went by quickly and relatively enjoyably. The only thing i would say that is a con is that the pay is pretty low for the staff there.
CNA (Former Employee) – Grafton, WV – October 20, 2017
CNA job entitles providing basic ADL and care. Assisted in any nursing duties within my scope of practice. The most enjoyable part of the job was the one on one care. Curious to see how the new management has changed the facility.
short staffed, excessively long hours, and management would not work with staff with scheduling
This job was a good job for a CNA but again the job had management higher up people that did not do a good job running it. Also scheduling was very messed up you would work 10 days straight then receive maybe 2 days off.
Medical Laboratory Technologist (Former Employee) – Grafton, WV – February 28, 2017
The manager is difficult to work for. He is manipulating and controlling and often dishonest. The environment is hostile as everyone has been lied to and stabbed in the back by manager and others. Everyone is guarded and suspicious.
On a typical day I dispense prescription medication to patients. I care and evaluate patients needs and disease process. I enjoy my co-workers, mentors, because they allow me freedom and assistance in new things that I am not familiar with.
Good co-workers, not enough staffing would be the hardest part of the job, The residents appreciate all that you do for them. The management can be difficult to work with at times. Long hours mandating to cover staffing shortages.
Enjoy working with the elderly. It is fun and learning experience.
LPN (Current Employee) – Grafton, WV – July 7, 2012
I enjoy taking care of people and listening to them. You always learn to be patient and courteous. Helpful to families. A typical day is very busy. Taking care of residents, and laughing and joking with them. Support them as needed. Co-workers-workiing as a team is very important. Hardest part of the job would be trying to redirect several residents at one time when behavior issues occur.
