How is management perceived at Barchester Healthcare?

Pros

they will always pay you.

Cons

They care very little about the residents, focusing more on meeting quotas than treating them like humans despite charging them an arm and a leg to stay there. This doesn't apply quite so much to the nurses as it does the care staff and management. The management sets unrealistic deadlines for things that aren't always within the carers control and makes very little effort to provide anything more than the bare minimum of staff needed to provide a somewhat humane level of care. The care staff routinely perform illegal moves but at least they take the time to do things properly when they've been warned that they're going to be observed. In my experience the senior care staff were incredibly condescending and rude to new carers and care assistants, which is a sentiment shared by every new hire I worked with. I was also paid less than other new hires with the same level of experience with no explanation as to why this was the case.

Advice to Management

Keep a closer eye on what your staff are doing. Maybe don't warn them that they're going to be observed so you can actually learn when someone is endangering your residents.
