Stay away from Monarch Parmly on the Lake!
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Chisago City, MN – March 7, 2018
As an employee, I have to say that I am very disappointed with Monarch's management of Parmly in Chisago City. The management team, including the DON, HR employees, and scheduler treat the nursing staff with no respect. Because of this lack of respect, this facility can not keep their CNAs or nurses. Many staff members have left because they do not feel valued as employees. The remaining staff members are burnt out, mainly because of Parmly's ridiculous mandation policy. Many CNA's, especially on evening and night shift, are forced to work 16 hour days, and could have their employment terminated if they refuse. Management also picks favorites and will change company policy day to day in order to fulfill their needs. I would steer clear from working for this company, and I would also not recommend anyone to send their loved one to this facility. Monarch has changed all hygiene products over to the cheapest product they can find, and this negatively impacts the health of the residents. Though this issue has been brought up many times to management, employees are told to "deal with it". Parmly does not care about their employees or residents. Stay away!!
