    Well, I only have info because my Mom was in there a few times. They had a complete turn over of RNs once when my Mom was in there because they quit paying RNs overtime. They said they were "salaried" all off a sudden.

    I was not really impressed with the care there, but I am not really impressed by any LTC or "rehab center" as they like to call them in AZ. They are certainly much worse places, and just a few that are better.

    If you can be more specific, I will try to answer your questions.

    I worked there for one month as a CNA about 3 years ago. The time line can tell you. It was my first CNA job, hated it. They had a rotating schedule and because I was in school I had to take nights. And they didn't tell me that until after I accepted the position. I then decided to switch to part time since I didn't think I could handle nights and going to school. The DON was very rude and nasty and said that they didn't have part time available and I would be put on PRN. It didn't make sense that they were needing people to work and yet turned me down for a part time schedule. So I did the paper work to switch to PRN. Shortly after that they called me and were saying "where are you?". They thought I had no-showed. My paperwork was "lost" in the shuffle and they didn't bother changing my schedule. I didn't know that. By 7 in the morning I had the DON, the ADON and the secretary all calling me saying that if I wanted to switch to PRN I needed to talk to them first and I couldn't just "not show up"! Since I already had talked to them and had the paperwork for proof I was reprimanded for no reason. I quit very shortly after that. That was my last experience in a nursing home. Oh, and on nights we had one CNA for each hall (3). I think I had about 25 patients. I am a good worker but the situation was set up bad and their false impressions of me made for a bad experience.

    I had a week of training there during my CNA orientation. I (and my classmates) found many things we observed there worrisome.

    Every LTC facility gets paid the same as every other LTC facility by Medicare.
    Just looking at the condition of the facilities and its employees should tell you a LOT.
