I have been working at Fresenius Medical Care - North America full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Stable dialysis industry, you can settle into a routine at this company, layoffs don't happen often, it seems similar to working at a state government job

Cons

No information from senior management, Goals are set - Goals are missed - No big deal, Unclear future direction

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus a lot on delivering the best service to the patients; focus not as much on trying to get to retirement

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    Former Employee - Acute Dialysis RN in Lexington-Fayette, KY

    I worked at Fresenius Medical Care - North America full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Autonomy, base pay plus acute shift diff (15%), night shift diff (30%), mileage to hospitals (.51/mile), free uniforms, lots of hours avail if wanted

    Cons

    18 hour days mandated, worked 24 hour days frequently plus on call and every other weekend, often by yourself after just 10 weeks of class even though policy says 6 months with another RN at all times, forced to do PD and CRRT with zero training (they want to talk you through the process over the phone with pt family in the room - very unprofessional and dangerous!) Several sentinel events in the short time I was there. Very unsafe for staff and patients alike.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train staff better, have charge nurses that are willing to help and aren't online shopping all day, listen to staff complaints and get rid of those that are not following policy and practicing in a dangerous manner instead of promoting them

    Pros

    Office Culture and staff were very tight knit

    Cons

    Fresenius and VBVC did not communicate and were NEVER on the same page!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider looking closer at your current manager and what his real goals are. In 7 months, I saw him twice.
