Human Resources Director in Davenport, IA
Making a difference at all levels
I have been in healthcare for over 12 years and a part of the Kahl home for two years now. I truly enjoy my career here because of the residents and our amazing staff. The love, care, and compassion that they show our residents is warm and endearing. It leaves a good feeling knowing that you have made a difference in someone’s life, even on those tougher days.
We have a growing and changing culture here at the Kahl Home. We promote diversity and inclusivity in the workplace culture by welcoming individuals from all backgrounds and celebrating their differences.
The work culture is full of love and humor and hard work. We want the best for our residents. Truly at the Kahl Home, “The Difference is Love.”
Consider a career with us and grow with an organization that believes in an individual, holistic approach to caring for our residents. Long-term care and skilled nursing are unique career specialties. You get to know your residents up close and personal while gaining knowledge about the aging process. You also have the opportunity to work with other caring professionals and build a strong community.
Management = Bully’s
Never enough supplies, never feel appreciated, they will always find something you did wrong even if you work your hardest and try your best, always short staffed then blame the staff when things go wrong, unachievable tasks, too heavy of a work load and little pay, management sits in their offices all day and only come out to bark out orders, if your not friends with management then you’re dirt on their shoes, they let certain people pick and choose when they want to work and the others get the short end of the stick, you can put in a PTO day but you probably won’t get it because they don’t have staff so much for vacation time, they talk to their cnas like they’re incapable and under educated. It is a beautiful building, but they care more about the building than their staff. If it weren’t for my residents I wouldn’t have stuck around this long. It’s sad when the residents SEE you struggling and working short staffed so they tell you how they appreciate you, but management can’t. Not to mention they brought in new management and forced all the old Kahl home management out or made their job so difficult they had to quit or got fired for not getting stuff done. I wouldn’t take my family member here if it was the last place left on earth for them to go to.
CMA/Rehabilitation/CNA in Davenport, IA
Looks can be deceiving. Nice building, horrible employer.
Working full time at KH it took a year of first shift for the administrator to show her face on 3rd floor. You would think they would want to know what’s going on. They got a J tag from someone choking. The nurses are rude and sit in the nursing station on their phones. They don’t show appreciation for the CNA’s. You often work short handed. Especially if you work on a Alzheimer’s & dementia floor. They have stated, “they can’t call state on us for working their floor short because they have dementia” They are all about money at this place and it shows. Things are much different since the original Kahl home building and it’s like their values went out the window. I would rather put my family member anywhere but this mess of a facility. The only way I would ever work here again is if it was the last healthcare facility left in the whole quad cities.
LPN Charge Nurse in Davenport, IA
Religious facility with strict administration.
Administration does put the residents needs first. Administration does not care about the employees. Expected to falsify documentation reprimanded if refuses.
