Charge Nurse (Current Employee) – Jackson Heights, NY – June 27, 2018
Not for someone looking to further their career. Understaffed. No benefits. No support. Overworked. Underpaid. Not paid for missed breaks. Not paid for extra hours of work. Overwhelming patient to nurse ratio.
Unit Manager (Former Employee) – Hockessin, DE – June 26, 2018
I worked here years ago, so things may have changed. But, while I was employed there, I felt as though management did not care about the employees and there was a lot of "favorites". Some of the nursing staff was questionable. Most of the CNAs were great, while others sat on their phones in patient's rooms. Some had no respect for the nurses. Overall, I loved the patients and some of my coworkers
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Hockessin, DE – April 25, 2018
Run, don’t walk from this place they care more about numbers rather than adequate care of people. Management got there little click that they favor. Those are the ones that are cutting corners and stealing time.
Short of help, nurses think wiping butt is beneath them.
The workplace is very nice but it is very stressful due to lack of staff.
wound Care Nurse (Current Employee) – Jackson Heights, NY – September 4, 2014
If there are more staff, the work load would be better and the quality of care given to residents would be great. Most of our residents complain of lack of staff. I learned that in this case, we still have to value our residents and their needs are our priority. The management is good, they listen to your suggestions and comments. The most enjoyable part of this job is the people you are working with.
The facility was a great learning environment for me
Social Work Intern (Former Employee) – Jackson Heights, NY – May 21, 2012
As an intern I had the opportunity to learn and ask as many questions as necessary. Our supervisor had high expectations and that motivated me to work harder and better each day. I worked with mostly elderly residents and was exposed to their views on life, their hardships and their wisdom. I completed daily psycho-social interviews with residents, ran a weekly spanish-speaking support group and met for supervision with a licensed clinical social worker each week. The most challenging part of working with this population was setting boundaries and trying my best to not become emotionally involved with residents. Overall, it was an excellent experience.
