The facility moved from being a 3 star facility to a 5 star facility."
  • "I have never met another person with such devotion to scheduling. She is excellent at communicating with the nursing staff using OnShift, posting schedules, filling open shifts and sending messages out to the staff."
  • "She works endlessly to ensure that we have the amount of staff that we need to care for our residents. She drops everything to accommodate any staffing need that we have. She goes to great lengths to get to know and understand the needs of the employees so that she can organize a schedule that is both beneficial for the employees but also to the residents and other staff."
  • "She serves as our 'scheduling consultant' for our other locations currently using OnShift. She has absorbed every aspect of the program and has helped get overtime down by 74%!"
  • "He is very patient with our staff, and the new hires absolutely love him. In our region we have 14 other facilities and we are number 1 in compliance and number 1 in overall use of OnShift and currently have the lowest overtime rates.
