LPN in nursing home setting (Former Employee) – Dade City, FL – April 5, 2018
this facility has too many patient to staff ratio. The nurse does wound care, med pass, feedings, as well as qid blood sugar testing. There are no med techs to hep with the heavy med passes. there are no treatment nurses to help with treatments while the floor nurses are giving much needed nursing care.
people "act "to busy to help another person with a resident.
I enjoyed working at heritage Park. There were a lot of good team players that made the shift go by nicely. I always went above what I was supposed to do knowing that some would return the favor. Management listened and did what they could to fix a problem, you never had to go above them to solve something.

Heritage Park is a wonderful place to work if you are in health care. This place was great and the residents and employees were also great. This was a very enjoyable job for me, I have nothing bad to say about it.

I loved the residents. I worked in the locked unit where some of the aids were not nice to staff and made their own rules where management would not intervene. For the most part the weekend supervisor was awesome.

Dietary Aide (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – August 12, 2016
Would be a nice place to work for if the pay increase for a dietary aide. I would reconsider going back if the pay was $10. The hardest part was at night washing dishes other then that the work was typically easy. Good people to be around with good vibes.
RN & Wound Care Nurse (Current Employee) – Roy, UT – April 18, 2016
Heritage Park is a nursing home. You work for 12 hours. You are responsible for 20-40 clients with, usually 2 aides to help you. You are passing medications, all day long. Very rarely do you get a break, due to no down time. Besides passing medications you also are giving tube feedings with PEG tubes. You are also suction ventilator patients. Usually you end up working longer than 12 hours, due to management wanting you to chart at the end of your shift, just in case something happens with a patient.
A place I would enjoy working, if it wasn't the kitchen
Dietary Supervisor, Aide, and Cook (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 5, 2015
I am all for the fast paced, busy environment. However, I am also for strong leadership and good management. We were short staffed and overworked in the kitchen everyday, and most days my boss sat at her desk with her feet up. There were times where she would could out to help, but no one could manage to get everything done. If you did not finish everything you got in trouble, and if you asked to stay late, you would get in trouble again. We were forced to miss breaks, or take shorter breaks during our long shifts just to manage to finish the work of others. While I was there, I was facing a very difficult pregnancy. I would get sick all the time and I could not keep up with the job. The boss played favorites, if you were not one of her favorites, do not expect a chance to sit in the office briefly for a glass of water. I refuse to work over 8 hour shifts and be treated like nothing.
i was terminated because of non, comunication with me and my manager, and the manager of the office, i was very upset that i couldn't explain my self but i have to move on, its was a simple mistake i made that i didn't do on purpose and i regret it.
