    I have been working at DaVita full-time (less than an 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

    Good educational opportunities; met some good people while working with Davita.

    Cons

    Salaries not consistent--they will pay only what they can get away with, and start a new employee with same job title at higher wage, causing dissatisfaction. After working at several different clinics, I can say honestly that a few clinics care more about their bottom line (and standing within the company) than they care about giving the best patient care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management training needs to be implemented at all clinics--especially those clinics that are recently converted to Davita clinics. Bullying of employees is not acceptable, and does NOT empower employee to do his/her best job. Employed at most recent clinic short term due to bullying, which is sad. Patients really liked me and I was doing a great job.
