Why would she have to be a Tech just because she has poor grammar? Obviously you have no common senseabout you if you have to judge peoples jobs by their grammar. Im not totally agreeing with "curious" either but looks like to me that you have no right to call anyone anything from the way you talk.

I use to work there and it is awful they had techs that wouldnt bathe their residents and even not feed some. There is no way I would put my family in that place I watched a nurse let a lady die because she was to busy to check on her. It needs to be shut down.

As bad as it seems, you need to venture out because that goes on at all of them. Its been my expierence that its went on for years at all of them as well. These places will not hire good techs with expierence and they need to look more towards the appearance of their nurses and techs and if they can look at them and their hygeine and tell how clean and neat the person that they are going to hire is and tell whether they would do their jobs and be as clean with the facility and the residents. However, they dont care who they hire or how nasty lookin the person looks, they just hire them anyways. I can look at a woman in scrubs and if her shoes alone has dirt and mud and nasty shoe-strings, then that tells me the dont care about their own appearance, let alone anyone elses. Also, there are nurses who get so into their own little world and they do neglet patients. Why do you think we hear the words : "I pray i never have to put my loved ones in a nursing home"??? Its because we have at some point in time saw neglet going on while working as a tech or nurse.

No not false, so many marks and discrepancies lawyers took out full page ads for people to be able sue for the low ratings from the state. The place is horrible, like a nightmare horrible. I worked there a few years back. The pay was very low and you get what yu pay for. Some techs worked very hard, some did nothing. And I mean NOTHING. The idiots in purchasing bought beds that didn't have proper safety rails, so instead of replacing them, they put mattresses on the floor to break the falls. We broke our backs bending so far over to take care of people. Some residents would have to lay there for hours before they could get their pain meds, or be changed and cared for. Linda the night supervisor is a wretched woman who plays games with the staff. Pairing people off in teams who didn't work well together or like one another. Instead of thinking about the patients and what they needed.
We hated her, I and many others who really cared quit because of her. She would sit at the nurses station eating and doing nothing while patients were screaming in pain from falling out of bed, or walking alone while she just sat there. She had no problem listening to people scream in pain, they could wait, she was on break. I saw ants and cockroaches in oxygen tubes, filth, scabies, outbreaks of lice and bedbugs, the poor residents suffered so, so, much. I cried on my way home everyday. Awful place. I can barely stand to think about it to this day.

Got a licence, done the job, obviously they hire a lot of trash, as I stated they get what they pay for. Speaking of fat asses you mouthy little bitch, how do you take pride in anything when you can't spell or comprhend grammar?? How the hell did you get a licence if you can't spell or write? And yes they did have HORRIBLY low scores, which is public knowledge, look it up.

Well Christy, you happen to pop up on this thread at the right time. You are the very skank that we are using as an example of on this thread. You do not do a good job either, or thats the talk and i do talk to ppl from that place. Your hygiene sucks as well, you need to clean your mouth up as well as your appearance. Now, if there was anything to you at all, you would have went about your post in a different and morally speaking better way. Thanks for showing your strongest abilities on here for us all to see, and by that i mean showing how uneducated that you really are. And pls dont let your alligator mouth overload your canary ass the next time you pop up on this site!! Have a nice nite.

Christy,... noone talked trash til you came on here calling everyone a "fatass", am i right? It wouldnt be hard to pick you out of that bunch up there with your attitude. Now go iron your scrubs and clean your shoes and try to look descent while your at SCHC. Oh yeah, please brush your teeth and dont smoke on your breaks, because you are choking those patients to death with all that smoke smell. Oh and stop eating their trays of food and pretending to feed them, thats why they are so mal-nurished. Now, scoot along and go take care of the elders today and dont be hitting them either. Bye now!

I've been a tech for most of my life.Working in hospitals and finally schc.I worked there almost 10 years,and I saw and heard things,that would make your hair rise.
First of all,they have the laziness nurses there is.They sat at there desk,and won't help the techs do nothing.I've worked two different shifts,and it was hell!Nurses would not help the techs at all.They were TO GOOD TO WIPE SOMEONES ASS!!!!And also,the techs were looked down on by the nurses and staff.Techs are low paided,but they are the ones doing all the work......even washing wheelchairs!!!! Which housekeeping should do.
I've seen patients lying in fifth,not fed properly,and also men not shaved everyday.The list goes on and on.You complain and complain,but nothing is done about it.Your D.O.N. is a joke.She takes up for her nurses,but the techs are low-lying people to her.
The adm., is also another joke,up there(Tucker).He could care less about the facilities up there to.His 100,000 job a year is his priority.
If anybody wants to be a tech...please go to a hospital or homehealth,before you work at a nursing home.I feel for the patients up there.
I've also seen and heard staff members not treating the patients fairly either.For example,the activites dir., Diane,turned down a patient one day because she was afraid she might annoy the other patients.All the patient wanted to do,was just go and see a movie.
So,don't get on here and say everything is fine and dandy up there,cause I've seen,heard and been there for years and years,and I don't care what anyone else has to say about it being goody-goody.
If she is still there,Michelle Givens,then I would watch my back,cause she has two faces!!!

You are exactly right!!!!They have had some good techs leave,due to the extra hardship on them,and also the nurses bitching on them all the time.The techs left for better working conditions,and better pay!

No i didnt start this thread, if i had of then it would have said Angie, because thats my name. Go look at the ratings of this facility that you are defending and then come back and tell me why the ratings are so low. Now, everytime you speak it has a foul word or you are name-calling someone,.. that tells me what calibar of a person you must be. Now, go clean your act up and i might can speak about this with you
