Management - TRAIN your staff

Social Service Specialist (Former Employee)
Larkspur, CA

I worked at Kindred Healthcare full-time for less than a year

ProsTransitional care means changing patients, most of whom are grateful for the care. Long terms nurses are dedicated and excellent. Psychologist is on top of his game.

ConsThe mix of LTC and rehab is a challenge to balance. While Kaiser is responsive to staff, many private doctors are aloof and need prodding to respond to requests.

Advice to Senior ManagementTrain your new staff; be willing to invest in the people you hire

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
