      I have been working at National HealthCare full-time for more than 10 years

      Pros

      Financially stable. Diversified in service offerings. Strong culture and processes are centered around excellent patient care and customer service.

      Cons

      With the ever-changing requirements of Medicare and insurance reimbursement, workload continually grows in the areas of documentation, and risk of denial for service from insurance grows, to the detriment of the patient, decreasing patient outcomes and job satisfaction. NHC trains employees to anticipate these barriers.

      Advice to Management

      Continue keeping patient care the priority. Hire creative minds who can take on the challenges of changing reimbursement to ensure excellent patient care is always given to post-acute and continuing-care patients.

        Listen without being condescending.

        I worked at National HealthCare full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        The people that you meet and care for are wonderful and seeing the ones who are there for rehab purposes improve and go home is a celebrated victory throughout the whole center.

        Cons

        The insurance is horrible and it's expensive. They do have an HSA plan that helps offset it a little, but not much. The amount of responsibilities keeps growing but your pay doesn't. Your work load is multiplied by the amount of meetings held on a daily basis. There are bonuses but the markers that you have to meet to obtain the bonus is not always something that you can control. As with most companies, people who are...

        Advice to Management

        Develop better training standards. Lessen the amount of meetings. Better communication. Better benefits.

        Pros

        Great values, NHC puts customer service first and ensures that patients are safe

        Cons

        Upper-level nursing management can sometimes be nitpicky and over-the-top, but they mean well Scheduling is annoying

        I have been working at National HealthCare

        Pros

        Eh, the food is ok.

        Cons

        Bad management, aweful pay, no options for advancement, they run the place like a hotel instead of taking peoples health into account.

        Advice to Management

        Quit writing up people for everything. Most employers do a point thing and if you need to "talk" to someone about something, you dont need it on paper. No other NHC does this, so it's purely poor management of your part and boarderline bullying.

      • "CNAs are underpaid, understaffed, and unappreciated!"

        StarStarStarStarStar
          Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

          I have been working at National HealthCare

          Pros

          The residents and their families are wonderful. Most of the employees are there to provide quality patient care and actually care about the residents. The benefits aren’t too bad.

          Cons

          Always understaffed, nurses and management are rude and they expect you to be able to be in multiple places all at once. If I was provided with the appropriate amount of staff then I could do much more with my time, instead of doing the work of 3 people on my own. Extremely underpaid for the work that we do. I understand that a degree is not required but making a dollar or two more than minimum wage just isn’t acceptable...

          Advice to Management

          Pay your CNAs better and treat them with more respect, fix the horrible scheduling, stop being so money hungry and hire the appropriate amount of staff, and offer more benefits.
