High workloads
Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee), Rancho Cucamonga, CAOctober 8, 2014
Not a well respected department. Overloaded with 16 hours of work or more. No registry allowed so if someone calls off you pick up their load.

poor managment, understaffed cna, rude nurses
CNA (Former Employee), virginia beach, VaOctober 2, 2014
Pros: you get your 30min break....
Cons: everything!
Management is horrible!!! Managers will look down on you and white you up for no reason. Most of management will not try to help you. They basically look down on you and try to get you fired.
They are understaffed with cna's. They expect you to take on 20 patients a night and if you don't do everything expected they will write you up.
The nurses are – more... stuck up. When they need some they will come and get you and tell you to do something to make there jobs easier. The nurses will give you dirty looks if you are not a nurse. They disrespect there cna's.
DRAMA- there are always drama going around. If someone doesn't like you they will spread a rumor about you. When the DON hears about it you will be questioned. Even if you didn't do anything wrong they will try and fire you if she does not like you. – less

Dietary Aide (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NVSeptember 30, 2014
Pros: free lunch
Cons: health care
When I used to work Kindred Hospital. Always looked at the diets and see what the patient can have first.A typical day was to set up all the breakfast trays for the patients. Help the staff and cook and assist to their needs. Put coffee out in the cafeteria for the hospital staff.Set out cups and wipe down the counters. The cook starts loading the food – more... on the plates and I load the trays in the cart and take the food down to the patients. Come back and set up for lunch trays and set up for lunch in the cafeteria lunch for hospital staff. Go and get carts and wash all the dishes. Go out to cafeteria and serve hospital staff. Set up dishes for lunch and serve food on the plates and load them in the cart to take to patients.Have lunch, then go pick up carts to wash lunch dishes. Then set up dinner trays and make salads and deserts and etc. Make dinner trays and load into cart and send to the patients. Pick up the cart wash dinner dishes and clean up the kitchen and go home. I learned about all the diets and what foods they can't and can have. Putting the food away and dating it. Making sure the kitchen is clean. Always show good customer service and a team player. The management is great. They helped out a lot. My co-workers were a big help. The hardest part was to make sure that every patient got the right foods.Working with the Patients and staff was wonderful. I met a lot of great people. It warms my heart to help the patients and meet their needs. I have done dietary Aide for 5 years. I have a lot of skills. – less

A typical day is stripping and waxing floors, the hardest part in getting the room cleaned and prepped to get patients in. The management team are all very friendly and seem willing to keep staff happy promoting a healthy work day.

Great nursing team and learned a lot
RN (Current Employee), Livermore, CASeptember 27, 2014
Pros: great staff
Cons: patient ratios is high, ot is shunned
I specifically care for patients in the sub-acute unit. Most of these patients are recently hospitalized and requiring addition care while receiving rehab before re-entering the community or into their own homes. I have cared for various age groups of patients from 30-99+. We have a great nursing team and collaborate well with each other in order to – more... provide the best care of our residents.
I have worked closely with management team and director of nursing in order to ensure that the organization works well for our patients. I learned how to view nursing as a functioning whole instead just individual based.
The most hardest part of the job is maintaining my cool when the work load gets very stressful. How I manage that is to take a few minute break, even if it means to walk around the building.
The most enjoyable part of my job is working with my patients and seeing their gradual improvements in their condition. For example, I had a patient with late stage cirrhosis and was admitted with alcohol withdrawal and within a few months made a complete 180 degree change. – less
