You honestly think that every employee there is just there for the paycheck? That is so silly work places have bad employee no matter where you work . Trust me the labor, patience, and stress that is involved in taking care of the elderly is worth way more than what you get paid. But I guess you know everything about everybody and everyplace. I apologize know it all.

I have had it with all of the nasty remarks and half-truths that keep getting posted on here by people who don't have a clue about what goes on at our facility. The truth is that we are a team united in looking out for our elderly residents and I don't know one single employee who intentionally neglects anyone who lives there. Yes, we need more staff, but we do meet state mandated staffing requirements. As at any work place, some people are more dedicated to the job than others. The FEW CNAs who keep calling in sick every time they get a hangnail cause the MANY DEDICATED CNAs to have to work 16 hour shifts, but these girls work willingly because they love the people that they are caring for. Finally, we just had a totally unannounced full state inspection (trust me, we NEVER know when these inspectors are going to show up) which we passed with NO CITATIONS for substandard care. Enough said.

HNH Employee...Who are you trying to get to believe your BULL? Anyone who has ever been in that Nursing Home to work or visit with their family knows better. It is pitiful the way a lot of residents are treated. If they are not in their right mind so they can tell their family, or if they have no family to visit them, they are treated like SHIT. I know this for sure, and I also know they are warned when they are having an inspection.

No they weren't warned an inspection was coming, it was a surprise check. Can you honestly name one resident on any floor that is being neglected?? I didn't think so, you act like you know but you don't know shyt. Just another wind bag wanting to pick. Tsk, tsk...

body_of_truth.... When you leave a resident in bed at 3 P.M clean and dry, then go back at 7 A.M. and there is not a dry thread on either sheet and not a dry hair on her head and she reeks of PISS, You know she has not been touched since you left her. I know this to be a fact. I saw it with my own eyes, I do not have to take anyone's word for it.

I worked there a long time ago and we were told to bathe the patients whos family came in on a regular basis first then worry about the rest. If you have a family member in any nursing home,please check on them often and they will probably get decent care. As stated above,if they have no one to visit and check on them,they don't get half the care they need. Needless to say,i didn't work there very long.

I do agree with u when u say that u dont know when "STATE" comes in or "INSPECTORS",and there is ppl that work there that are dedicated and then the ones who arent,but thats the problem with the facility,they treat the hard working cna's like shit,while the ones that call in and goof off and just there for a pay check,they are treated with top priority..and no CNA's dont get paided nowere near enough money for what they do and because of that very reason noone will not work,causing a nursing shortage on the floors(CNA)and it is extremley hard to keep up with all patients ever second of a shift,but that is still no excuse for what happened.Why wasnt this matter took care of the first time the complaint was turned in on the guy that done that to another female patient?If it had been taken care of the first time then maybe this wouldnt have happened the second time to the same woman (patient) and the man (patient) that done that twice couldve been discharged to somewere else..Alot of elderly patients take alot of medications and alot of that medication can cause a patient to do stuff they would never do if they were in there right mind,and thats why it is so important to go that extra mile and do rounds when u have got ur charting,feeding,ice passed and cleaning done,I mean that is what they are there for and getting paided to do..trust me when I say I have worked there awhile back ago and I have been a CNA for over 10 yrs and u have got to really work ur ass off to get the job done right.Yes every nursing home has good and bad qualities,but this is a serious matter and the nursing home I worked for would never allow something like this to happen 1 time,so Im really confused of how it happened a second time...and the newspaper dosent lie or neithr does the news and it said that it had happened once and turned in and nothing was done about it resulting to happen again...thats pitiful employee...

Yeah ur right they do know when state is coming,the nursing home that im currently at,they dont know when they come,they think they do,they will tell us that it will be in a week and id be a sob if they show up that day or the next.Its hard to tell about these nursing homes,especially hazard..I worked there so many yrs ago and i tell u alot goes on that they sweep under the table.If u know Glenna the Nurse who works on 100 and Angie,OMG u would take ur family freaking home..I dont know there last names them 2 nurses,but I wouldnt care to bet and win if one of them and maybe both had apart to do with it.

from an outsiders point of view it sounds like a few on here like noub and body of truth used to be employed there whats wrong did you get fired for not doing your job or were you just a pill head stealing old timers meds howcan you judge one person who by the sound of it trys hard every day to do the job at the best of their ability to take care of the ones she is there to do, whats wrong you got a beef with the company or the person, it sounds like you two are super cnas never done nothing wrong but in truth your probably no better than the two that got caught, i say you will get caught one day soon taking shortcuts when your in a hurry hopeful no one will get hurt by your actions but they probably will, dosent it say that the one who has no sins cast the first stone i doubt either one of you two would come close being able to cast a stone know would you?

Are you flipping fried? When did I say I worked there or for that matter anything negative about the place? You need to read a little bit better buddy because you just popped off on the wrong person.

You know this website isn't anything but a bunch of people talking about shit that they know anything about, and I think that its kind of rediculous that you all would talk about something like this. I work at the nursing home, and i do my job...the way it needs to be done. and there are many more that do too..but like the other person said, yeah there is a few that like to call in, and yeah we've got a few that are just there for the paycheck, but until u have worked there and know how hard of a job it is you dont need to say a word about how we do our job. Yeah we are really short handed on nursing staff right now...but that doesnt stop us from taking care of these people the way they are supposed to be taken care of. so now im not going to say anything else about this matter, and until u have worked there and know what happened, you shouldn't either!!
