Certified Nurse Aide(CNA) (Former Employee) – Hudsonville, MI – November 13, 2018
I was promised compensation for schooling that I had done to become a CNA(also promised to me by the state) however, they took my receipt that they use to verify the schooling sent it to "corporate" and after multiple attempts of me trying to get compensated over the past 18 months now, I have still yet to get paid what I was promised when I began working here. It is a failure in management who fail to properly staff their floor and poor quality equipment that make it more difficult to do the tasks required of the job. They expect to much of their employees who care for people that can't care for themselves. It is a terrible place to work.

They are very neglectful towards residents. The workers there are very rude and not helpful and are basically a mess. They had a worker hung over every day at work ans finally tols him to come back in 6months after he straightens out instead of firing him. This place is a joke!also was suppose to be fulltime and everytime i made the 45min srive i would come in and be sent home because i was a newbee and no one else wanted to lose hours i would be sent home.
Amazing management! You must be a team player to work here. The nursing staff from hospitality aides, cnas, floor nurses, unit managers, ADON,and DON, are the best I've ever worked with! 25+ years on the floor so this says allot.

I enjoyed my time at the Laurels. The DON was easy to work for and if you are a dependable, hard working employee, she was especially easy to work for. One of the downfalls was my pay. The raises were 2% across the board for CNA's. Benefits were really cheap, around $23.00 for a single person bi-weekly. The best part of the job was most of the LPN's and CNA's are amazing people and therapy is in the building everyday and are also pretty awesome. Sadly the Laurels started to take in a lot of drug and alcohol dependent patients, which led to extremely high stress levels. Some of which were homeless and treated the employees like personal servants. They were getting people as young as 20 years old, who would expect to be waited on hand and foot. Leaving some of the elderly patients waiting for care for lengthy times. I had a homeless drunk throw a tray of food at me and I knew my time as an employee was coming to an end once I was treated like that.
pay, some of the shady patiants they brought in (not elderly).

Good company with compassionate workers. Some workers could gain more experiece and pay more attention to what residents really need. But the company and management are good. The hardest part of the job would be seeing the Rehab residents leave, but it was also the best feeling in the world to watch them get better. I enjoyed being able to work with Rehab residents, it was the most honoring part of my job
I was a bad fit, but that isn't the fault of the Laurels.

If you know that being a CNA is for you and you love the work the Laurels is worth your consideration. The people in management and the co-workers are kind and lovely people. I don't feel I'm fit to judge the other aspects of this workplace, because working as an aid in a facility is a poor fit for me.
chronically understaffed, but they are working on that
