I wish you had the insight to post a category for rating the management at Brooks - Howell.

The morale among the care giving staff is abysmal, even for a nursing home, largely due to the cost saving strategies employed by the supervisory staff. They are understaffed, caregivers are given only vague outlines of their work schedules, then called at home at any time and pressured to come in at any time of the day or night rather than hire additional staff or pay any overtime. several staffers who have had to work occasional overtime in extreme situations have actually been refused overtime pay for it, being told by the management that in emergencies the employer isn't required to pay overtime wages, and the caregivers are to frightened of reprisals by management to make a complaint to the labor relations board.

Response: This sounds like it is more from a former employee than a resident or their families take on the home. Drop by for a visit and make up your OWN mind about the facility.
