Don't all nursing homes kind of HAVE to be equipped to deal with elderly people that broken their hips, and well the confusion, I know for a fact that has to be dealt with. In my opinion, Cypress Point is one of the nicest nursing homes in this town. Although, a friend of mine said she was very comfortable at the Golden Living Center, I believe is what it's called. However lol she said the food was nothin' special :P

CNAs, as a general rule, are usually kind and worth their weight in gold. However, you get a few bad apples that want to cause problems (and these people make things hard for everyone.)

The real problem lies in management. No one wants to pay a CNA what they are worth. They could pay their workers twice what they do now without causing too much damage to their bottom line, but then corporate would throw a fit. They're like the oil companies, no matter how much money they make they always want more, and they don't care who they hurt to get it.

A lot of people in management also see their workers as being replaceable. Most people who become CNAs are just people that come in off the street looking for a job. They're often trained in house, and put on the floor full-time once they receive their certification. Anyone is capable of doing the job, not everyone is capable of sticking with it, because it is a job that drains a person physically and emotionally.

As for being replaceable, that's all the upper management see the residents as. Residents die all the time. Problem? Not really, there's always someone to take their place. Residents are just a paycheck to people in upper management.

It's a sad truth, and I seriously doubt there will ever be reform. Too many CNAs will keep doing what they do and putting up with what they put up with just because they know someone has to do it, and nothing will ever get done as long as they allow their bosses to walk all over them and the people they take care of.

I guess you be refering to Paula Abernathy every place she has worked at she has caused problems. She stole money out the cash register, to cover her bad checks that she was writing and to support her family. She would do anything to start drama. She acts like she like you then stabs you in the back.

No, actually I was talking about no one in particular. I don't get on here just to cause problems for other people.

I do agree they should pay CNA's more,but noone ever notices or says nething about any other areas in the Nursing home that keep it running...the girls that work in laundry/hskpg/dietary are underpaid too..the ones who work hard deserve more money....shouldn't matter if your a cna or what...i don't agree that a shitty cna that start's drama and mistreats a resident should be paid more than someone in ne other area.
just wondering

you can bring her to Crowley Ridge Care Center. I used to work there.They have the best therapy department. I have seen residents not being able to walk due to a hip fracture but as soon as they have therapy they are better and then they go home.. Call and find out and take a tour see for yourself

I am not putting anyone down by saying this although it is genuine. The more education one has the less likely they will be in a job that consist of hard physical labor for minimal pay. Look into furthing education and give oneself more opportunities in life.

I'll tell you one thing, My grandma was in there a few years ago. And the boss in the kitchen was hollering at one of her employees while i was there. It made me so mad at how little respect she showed her employees. come on take them somewhere private. I know that if i ever need a job it wouldn't be there.

yah i know exactly who you are talking about, and i can't believe they let her continue to be a supervisor there. She is very rude to all of her staff. I honestly can't believe, that she still has staff there.

i know paula personally and i think that if she knew the crap that whoever is saying about her behind her back and not to her face(the freckin cowards) then she might have a different thing just for them, you need to stop and judge yourself before you talk about someone else or are you to afraid to say any thing to her face

I currently work at cypress. It is one of the nicest homes I have ever worked in. We do take residents with hip fractures as well as people with different type of health issues. As for Paula she is a hard worker that cares for her residents very much. I wish all our CNA's cared as much as she does.
