There is a class action lawsuit being filed against the facility. Anyone who worked there and is willing to tell the whole story should contact Brown Chiari.
That class action suit was filed on behalf of the RESIDENTS, not the WORKERS on Oct 28, 2010 by Brown Chairi out of Lancaster ny.

Even before Felder Services took over the housekeeping and laundry at Legacy (or what it is called now) and Wms. Surburban, one of the sisters fired the boss of housekeeping over the phone for no real reason. They replaced her with someone else and when Felder took over,soon after they demoted her to a job in the laundry. They are running that department with less people now and expect the same results.
Anything to cut costs (at employees expense) is their motto.

That is correct and the more people who go to court and tell it like it is the better able you will be to file your own grievance or join your own class action.

I worked for the sub-contractor EBS in the LEGACY, but when FELDER took over housekeeping, you could sign up with FELDER at a much lower rate, so I didn't go for their ways, and quit.
Self serving yuppies, the bunch of them.

Most of the cleaning staff is too afraid to do anything about the conditions there. I have never witnessed any resident abuse, just the cleaning staff getting the shaft from that prison oriented FELDER SERVICES.

You should see how shook up they get when the STATE is due for one of their inspections.

I just read in today's paper that the union at a Lockport nursing home is going out on strike. I think that any employee who has been unfairly treated should contact that union and try to get them to represent the 5 homes run by Zachers. The time is ripe with that Felder thing in there.
That union is called, SERVICE EMPLOYEES INTERNATIONAL UNION, UNITED HEALTHCARE WORKERS EAST. If that union can't help, maybe they can advise what one can.

I heard that a couple of years ago there was an overdue gas bill for over $200,000 taped to the entrance door.

I guess some of the trouble is caused by not getting compensated enough from Medicaid.

Anyone, could have a better life if they made a different choice. Life is short, so whats the difference? I kind of enjoy the smells though.

I give a lot of credit to the CNA's in any Nursing Home. Most are compassionate, patient and caring. Not all aspire to be an LPN or RN. They enjoy the residents. Those that complain miss the point that they chose the job they are doing. If they are unhappy, please move on to make it a better work place.

That may be so in some cases but the one I have seen many times at this dump was as overworked and unappreciated as anyone I have ever seen.

Not only is the Zachers listed in that class action law suit, but Felder is now listed on it.
If there was a union there, all that stuff could have been avoided.

I have worked at RVMNH for 9 years and have worked through it all. Rick Zacker is a very kind and caring man attempting to care for the elderly population with a Goverment that treats their Senior Citizens with less respect than their pets! Thank God their are people like him to stick it out for the sake of them. We as employee will contioue to support him and contionue to care for our extended "family" reguardless of all the misinformation that the ignorant public wants to dish out. In our hearts we give the best we can every single day of the year. Can you all say the same??????????
Too bad the 2 Zacher sisters aren't like Rick.
