    I have been working at DaVita full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the patients are nice...

    Cons

    For new RNs, the pay is low and the training is so so. The people you work with are majority immigrants and always speak their own language. Lots of clicks. Lots of uneducated people work there and think they are your boss because they have been there longer. The RN to patient ratio is bad and definitely is a recipe to disaster. Its managed by people who do not understand anything about health care and they just care about the profits. They dont care about the patient safety or their health. They know these patients are chronically sick and will die so they treat them badly. Davita throws parties thinking they are doing such nice things by giving us food rather than giving us more money. And also the patients are nasty..they think they are your boss and tell you what to do or they report you to the state. Huge turn over and pay is also very low for RNs and Techs. VERY LONG hours...they work you to death.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring management that has health care experience. Its not just about profits but patient care. And no need to expand like crazy and keep in mind, there are a lot of cuts happening for dialysis patients. Retain your staff and listen to what they are saying. Keep good FAs around with BSN+ degrees. Dont just look at experience but look at what they have as degree and where they are coming from.

    Pros

    Many great teammates and patients

    Cons

    Ignoring CMS Mandated tasks in favor of pushing the company pharmacy down the patients and teammates throats.
    Constant expansion of non core programs and related conference calls, roll outs, trainings. the bureaucracy and numbers are valued. Patients are not
