Overnight shift are understaffed
Night Shift LIMA (Current Employee) – OFallon MO – December 21, 2017
Most nights the aides working 12 plus hours per night are understaffed. Employees call in at the last minute and most of time, management does not answer their phones. The third shift gets blamed for everything and the good workers are treated just as disposable as the awful, unreliable employees. It is hard on your body to work third shift and many of the residents in assisted living should be in nursing homes. Park Place is not a nursing home. Medications are usually provided late due to lack of staffing. The night shift does housekeeping duties and is expected to monitor residents at the same time. It is a stressful job that is not managed well. There is no charge nurse, therefore, nobody is supervised at night. Most aides are not trained CNA's so the more advanced employees are expected to do most of the work while others are allowed to do nothing. Turnover is huge!
