Corporate Director of Operations (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – December 17, 2017
As the Corporate Director of Operations and Outcomes I was responsible for 38 of the 76 facilities. I would review the portfolio with my divisional nurses and develop plans to improve the outcomes of each center. In this position I learned how to multitask and prioritize the needs from the most severe to the need of assistance. The culture was one where you could make recommendations based on observations and outcomes to the Senior VP of Clinical without any reprisal. The hardest part of the job was turnover in communities that were already struggling. I would with assistance from Corporate create job fairs. The most enjoyable part of my job was when the hard work of the staff paid off.
Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Broadview Heights, OH – November 21, 2017
I felt that the management at this facility pigeon holed you in to a box and left you there. Means of communication was almost non existent. I worked many units. Sometimes 3 in a 12 hour shift. 4 hours on one hall only to move to another and then another did allow for proper care in my opinion.
A few caring team members with longevity
Poorly managed in some areas and micromanaged in others.
Assistant DON and Acting DON (Former Employee) – Bryan, OH – June 29, 2017
Long term care is a difficult field. The patient load is always heavy. Staffing was a huge problem to handle as was employee maintenance and turn over. There was always a constant hiring and termination in this position.
Cook/Prep (Former Employee) – New Heaven, IN – September 22, 2016
I prep and cooked meals 5 to 6 days a week. Management was okay never had an issue with them or any co workers There was nothing really hard about the job it was very routine, was not the best of jobs, but it was a job and it help pay the bills.
Dietary Aide (Former Employee) – Beachwood, OH park east – June 7, 2015
Learned about work moral and how important proper leadership was. Improved organizational skills. The hardest part about the job was the lack of opportunity. Management was very poor , they didn't get along with each other and were constantly fighting with each other.
Social Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Troy, OH – January 11, 2015
Long term care is tricky and can begin to get to staff quickly. Coupled with the fact that the company changed hands and there was new management made things tense. Hours and staff were cut to bare bones and with that benefits were cut. This was the basis for leaving.
I learned so much at harborside as I was a new nurse in 2003. I worked on the Dementia unit and loved the management, the residents, co-workers. I received so much satisfaction for caring of the elderly. My typical work day was the medication pass, wound care, charting, and helping the LNA's in any way I could.
Accounts Payable Clerk (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – December 27, 2013
it was a fun place to work my whole team was a team player and the management trained good. the hardest part of the job was month ending each one of the accounts payable coordinators had over 200 batches to key in with in the 3 days time frame for month ending. the most enjoyable part is when we have short days on fridays.
State Tested Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Defiance, OH – June 11, 2013
I worked all 3-shifts. I learned to management my time. To take my job seriously. I learned to be a woman of my word. I learned team work, instead of complaining about what was not done to just do it and do it to the best of my ability. The hardest part of my job was seeing a few of my residents pass on. Having such a bond with them and they pass on was hard. I worked under some great nurses and they taught me all that I know today as with compassion, being a woman of my word, and dong the right thing when someone is watching or when they are not watching.
CNA (Former Employee) – Florence, KY – March 22, 2013
This place is all about money, and nothing else. No one, not even the management cared about any of the patients, aside from doing your daily duties, there was no actual person there, just another patient. No help from any of the nurses either. you are the CNA, do it all yourself.
Staff Educator/Assistant Director of Nursing (Former Employee) – Mashpee, MA – September 29, 2012
A typical day would begin with a daily management meeting with a clinical review, I did learn a lot about long term care processes. The management team was not cohesive and there was a lot of negative energy. I really did not make any significant relationships with co-workers as the administrator discouraged a friendly work environment, The hardest part of this job was going in every day and facing a negative environment. The most enjoyable part of my job were the off site meetings with the corporate team who were knowledgeable and friendly.
working monday thru friday, no weekends, no holidays.
Maternal child care and homemaker hiatus/LPN (Former Employee) – Rocky Hill, CT – June 20, 2012
