    Pros

    works around family obligations and understands importance of quality family time. If you are at work late then its fine to come in late the next day. I always get the requests that I ask for and the the vacation that I want, when I want it.

    Cons

    Cant make plans on days that you work because you never know when you'll be done. Sometimes the days are insanely long. Your day is always changing and nothing is ever set in stone.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistant with rules /policies. Let people know what is expected of them so that they know what to do.

    Pros

    Team based work environment. Daily patient contact and patient education

    Cons

    Weekly spreadsheet reports. Excessive paperwork detracting from patient care time.
    Top level management not understanding the challenges of the poor inner city population who do not have money for food, medication, and complete healthcare such as dental work.

    Advice to Management

    Patient education should be number one priority. Reports should be kept to a maximum of one per month. Dialysis units with trach patients, hoyer lift patients, and multiple nursing home patients should not be compared to suburban units when it comes to outcomes.

    Pros

    Great company with lots of room for upper growth. I started as a Pct and within a year and a half was running a unit.

    Cons

    A lot of people talk about pay as being a con. It's important to get paid for the work that is done and when you have a environment the is not fulfilling no matter how much I get paid it wouldn't be enough. I agree that pay should be increased for the line staff on the treatment floor as it doesn't compare to our market, however just because the pay increases doesn't mean job satisfaction also increases. It's up to us as clinical leaders to make each clinic a special place to work. DAVITA allows that to happen when I have worked for Davita.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to look at pay practices for line staff and do market analysis to ensure our pay is what the market suggest it should be for our area of business.
