I am a nurse there,and. Good nurse. I tried keeping out of this but can't no more. The only time I ask CNAs to give medication is if I'm running very behind. When I hold medication from a resident I eventually tell the doctor usually with in 2,3 days. Heather is a phsico bitch. She was horrible at her job. She usually was outside smoking so everyone else had to carry out her job to get out on time. I bet highland is damning themselves for ever hiring her. Rumor is she called the health commissioner of ny state,and the attorney general. Now good employees like myself will go under cause she got pissed. One time I was cutting fruit with a plastic fork for somebody and the stupid bitch asked me if I wanted something sharper producing a little blue switchblade!!!!! Of course I used it to cut the apple but what was she going to use it for? The only time I ever allow employees to hoyer by themselves if we are short staffed. I work alot of doubles each week. So yes I'm tired,and make things easier for myself at times. Money stopped coming up missing after heather left. People are getting along much better too. She is a bragging drug addicted murderer. I hated her from the start.
This is not Laura!

who gives you the right wrote:
You withhold medication, who made you the dr? Further if you are such a good nurse, why do allow 7-8 employees at a time to stand at the side doors and smoke?

Anytime of day or evening you will see a group of employees smoking at the sidedoor. Paitients lites on and the little beep going and not a soul to be seen, oh yea they are on smoke break.

You have to wonder about who is supervising who at this facility. Good for someone for calling the health commissioner and attorney general. Because if they dig deep enough, they will find many many violations and infringements at this facility and may incompetent people (including nurses working there).

Good employees like yourself wouldnt worry about going under if you supervised your employees to answer the lites on and stopped them all from smoking outside, but you probably are smoking with them. LOL , what goes around comes around and good employees like yourself wouldnt be worried about going down, if they did their jobs.

This facility needs to be turned in for many violatons it does day after day. First off, looks like they should be drug testing most of their employees, secondly they need a real supervisor who isnt out smoking with the rest of them.
That is not Laura.

if you have complaints, please call the department of Health....do not give administration the upper hand.....and yes, employees should be drug tested...they are taking care of our elderly population...maybe your mother or father!!! If there is indeed a problem, report it!! thank you

O M G I can't believe what I am reading,why in the world would this facility hire a prisoner.What did she do to end up in prison is what I want to know.
I hope I don't end up in that place.I feel so so sorry for someone taking away their pain medication.

Yea, grant bunch of employee's..a Good employee doesn't divulge resident names on a website and you certainly don't reveal on a website what a resident alleged against an employee!!
It absolutely disgusts me that you people work in the health care field! I am a LPN and I know that violating HIPAA is a FEDERAL offense. One that several of the Highland staff have committed!! Wonder what the Dept. of Health would think of information divulged here!

you no? Your sure its not " know" Tell me all "no" it all oz. How does she " no" how to split her personalities to different towns to post in so many comments at once? I can have fun doing that. You " no " ? Yes or know? You are a smart one. Hey man,check your benefit card maybe your foodstamps came in. You " no"? I bet you slept with heather and she really dumped your ass fast. That's the only explanation for your obsession with her. Or she did your boyfriend? Hey "wow" let it go man. Therapy is your salvation dood. Can somebody tell me this chicks last name? Curiosity has me about her. Or am I her too? Oh my god,!!! How did the penis get there if I'm her!!?? So in answer to your question, no I don't " no" Here is a helpful hint for you. Know is spelled KNOW.

You all need to sit down and talk things out.People who steals should be fired on the spot and get the police involed.I have knowing the Highland Nursing Home for many years good people there Its very sad when someone starts crap.I do feel they should do more drug testing more often.

I'm reading this thread and my heart melts for the residents there.I just can't believe that the State of New York would ever consider to employee you people. Stick a cotton swab up your nose and see what they may.Take a blood test and spend the time to do random drug test beyond pot.
A resident's room and what-notts are all they have left in life and put their lives in your hands and to be treated like this is very embarrassing to me.

Is Laura that tall , dark haired nurse that worked at highland like two years ago? I thought she was fired for narcotic,drug abuse. I'm not putting her down. There were allegations of her beeing a victim of parental pedophile abuse. She was a mess mentally. Does she work there again at highland or st.regis? Why does these nursing homes keep hiring these unstable employees? I'm glad I moved far from here before my father in law got ill. Now if I can get my offsprings to move south with me I wouldn't have to visit NORTH. St.lawrence county went to hell. All drug dealers,addicts,parolees ect.. Thirty years ago massena was a whole different environment. I worry about my grandkids growing up in massena. There were never these problems when I was growing up here. What and when happened to our community?

All this 143 comments came from hiring one girl. did she come with a poison label on her application. ( heather) why has nobody erased this yet. this has got to horrific for residents families. embarresing for staff. even if none is true or what not. I bet they are hating themselves for ever laying eyes on her if anybody goes to any other working environment just putting they worked at highland will not get them hired.this was one girl with vengeance that caused horrible consequences for many. I don't know to feel sorrier for staff,or the residents. depends on the truth I guess. heather is either very smart and calculating ,or honest on a mission,or really a socially crazy lunatic.i don't know care. reading all this has truly brought tears to my eyes.

I hate to say this but somebody or some people got played big time.I know this cause I can't understand why heather McConnell would work as a nurse assistant. The reason that is cause in 2004 she graduated actual nursing school with me. Why the hell would she work as a aid? Think about it? I know she wouldn't or have to take a min paying job. Her husband owns his own business. Even there youngest has a huge tv with entertainment system in her room. What ,she give the my husband is a gambler addict story? So she got a job making 300.00 a week? With no insurance? He'll no I'm not buying it. I know she wnt to CNA classes and I couldn't understand why a nurse would go to nursing assistant classes. Now I think I do after reading all this. I have a feeling she as been working for board of health all along.

she worked as a rn almost 10 yrs ago in pottsdam hospital. she only worked briefly there not even a year. whats the big deal though. maybe where she was working they didn't have any openings for a rn so they hired her as a cna. whats so crazy about that.
Horrible nursing home

I have a family member in Highlands Nursing Home in Massena New York. This place is a horrible place to go. i have no authority in getting my family member out of there but if i did she would be out in a heart beat. New York State needs to investigate them because the nurses are not there for the people but for the money. My aunt has walked by herself need to remind you that she can hardly walk with someone beside her and is wheel chair bound, she walked by herself from the bathroom to her table near the window. and accident waiting to happen. She also was covered in her own feces and the nurse didn't even bother to clean her until one of my family member noticed when they took her to the bathroom. Other serious things have happened as well but im not willing to put these on the internet. no one should put there family into this nursing home it is a bad idea.
