Pros

Used to be RehabCare-decent PTO

Cons

Micromanaging of staff, RehabCare cared, don't be fooled that Kindred is not RehabCare, iTouch management, being 'investigated' when iTouch goes out or not working properly. Staffing issues, will be sent home and get less hours even with traveling to more than 1 facility. Losing contracts and not proactive to give full time employees 40 hrs a week. Never flexible, even when told it was.

Advice to Management

The iTouch's DO misfunction, and focus on giving full time people their hours,even with travel options.

    Pros

    National company; as I mentioned previously, I was working with RehabCare when the merger with Kindred went through, which only consolidated its market share by expanding it in acute care as well as LTC setting.

    Cons

    The only reason I left after almost 6 years was, in my opinion, my immediate superior and her supervisor were losing the main focus of patient care and it was becoming all about the "numbers" and profit all the time. Being in management since 1999, I thought I knew (and, I was running the book of business well) the drill, however, it wasn't "enough' for these two. Hence, I parted ways.

    Advice to Management
