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

I worked at Fresenius Medical Care - North America full-time (more than a 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

    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
