You'd do better working at Tops or WalMart in Lockport
LPN (Current Employee) –  Newfane, NYOctober 22, 2018
There is no joy working at Newfane. There is peace and no hope of ever advancing here. Newfane Rehab is a dead end job. Owners care only about the bottom line. As long as they're squeezing every nickle they can from this place, they're content. Don't expect any acknowledgment for any good work you do. Administration and upper management will squeeze you like a lemon.

The morale is rock bottom. No one wants to come to work. There's numerous call outs, walk outs, and quitting. If a patient throws urine, feces, or hits you, you're expected to take it quietly. The management's attitude is it's part of your job and if you don't like it, you can be replaced. They get away with it because Newfane is the middle of nowhere Children of the Corn town of 10 thousand. McDonald's is a better place to work.

You really don't want to work or do an internship here. Google this place. Go to Yelp. if you work here, you'll end up so stressed you might drink a cup of bleach.
Pros
If you call making a few cents anhour more than WalMart a "pro" who am I to argue?
Cons
Everything.

not good
Other Experience (Former Employee) –  Newfane, NYJanuary 17, 2019
It is unfortunate that this place is still open. There are many good staff that are there to care for the residents who love their profession and dedicated to caring for their residents. But the environment is sad, depressing and dirty. Upper management was not supportive or offered guidance. No discipline for those who didn't do their job and no recognition for a job well done or those staff members that went above and beyond. If you want a quality job at a quality facility, this is not the place.

If you have not been there forever, forget about sticking around.
Nurse (Former Employee) –  Newfane, NYJuly 21, 2018
The horrible management, including some people that do not have the proper titles to be in those positions or the degrees are running the facility. If you are killing yourself helping pick up hours, for them.... They only will stab you in the back in the long run. Worked there for over 6 years. Will never go back, and do not recommend anyone else waste their time. They do not care about anything but money and themselves. I feel sad for the patients there. They do not deserve this place. No one does.
Pros
Patients
Cons
The lack of teamwork between the entire facility.

Physical/Occupational Therapy Department within a long term healthcare facility. I am the secretary/transport aid/CNA part time position.
Secretary/CNA PT/OT Dept (Current Employee) –  Newfane, NYAugust 17, 2013
Arrive at work, clean up a few things and arrange papers and things in order. Get report of people we will be working with and their status. Bring patients to pt/ot dept. for therapy after making sure they have their medication and ok from the nurse. Assist therapists with patients as needed. Organize, copy, file paperwork as necessary. Management and coworkers and helpful. The hardest part of the job is when people can not get better. The most enjoyable part is when patients can get better and are happy with their progress.
Pros
Learn about health problems and ways to improve them & active on the job
Cons
Emotionally/physically draining at times, some losses

Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) –  Newfane, NYApril 12, 2013
The typical day at Newfane was, you where always busy.

I learned Not to make the same mistake twice.go on with your day.

Management -- Management needs to learn how to communicate. better.

The hardest part of the job is when a resident dies and, you where close to them..

The most enjoyabe part of the job is when you go home and know you did a great job. Made Residents Happy..You did your best at the end of the day...
Pros
taking care of the residents. making them happy.
Cons
management. some of the girls took longer brakes nothing said to them..

the management can be rude
Dietary aide (Current Employee) –  Newfane New YorkSeptember 4, 2017
Since the new owners have taken over the place has gone down. They are more worried about their money and treat employees like garbage. Keep adding more work for us and sometimes we don't get a break. New company is taking over dietary September 10th and we are afraid of what's going to happen. Stressful place to work. Need something new.

Timed breaks. get treated like garbage

needs improvement
LPN Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Newfane, NYJuly 26, 2017
Overall needs improvement. Staff is caring. Facility outdated, needs work. Slow moving renovations. Rules for staff needs to be enforced more such as reprimands for call ins, etc. Has good potential.
