I worked for Comcare for a year and a half the last month I was there I worked in a house that had all tube feeds one had seizures one had seizures and would try to pull his tube out and flip over his chair because it was fun and the other would puke and occasionally pull out his tube for attention. I was working at this house by myself with nurses (who couldn't help reposition, change briefs, etc. per nancy theissan) and would get a floater for 2 hrs a day while having to reposition change briefs and do showers all within 8hrs. On top of that I started having to do 6 and 9pm meds at a house about 10-15 mins away. The last week I was there I got written up for not doing the laundry got suspended for 2 days with no pay come back the following week got written up again for the nurses leaving dishes in the sink and not being at my assigned work area because I was at the office but had permission got out on suspension with recommendation of termination and ended up being fired. I never mistreated a client and any client I was taking care of was well taken care of but I got fired for petty stuff. When another staff I worked in a house with left one client in pissy pants for who knows how long, shut a clients hand up in the door, and left another client asleep in the van with all doors shut during the summer and he was supposed to be line of sight when outside because he was unsteady outside all of this was reported and nothing got done about it. So Comcare is a shitty place to work I'm actually glad I got fired
Your story sounds like a typical "firing". Unfortunately, when a supervisor writes up a staff member and recommends termination, 9 times out of 10 that staff member will be terminated. There are times when other supervisors/management step up and put in a good word for a staff member, but it usuallly does no good. It can be frustrating because the lack of staffing wears on everyone. When you have staff working (voluntarily) massive amounts of overtime, it leads to carelessness due to lack of downtime for the staff. This is a job where employees do need their time away from the workplace. The stress levels can take their toll on nerves. Middle management has its level of stress too. They are caught between staff and upper management. The best place to be with Comcare is in the office.
