    Current Employee - Registered Nurse  in  Wareham, MA
    Current Employee - Registered Nurse in Wareham, MA

    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare for less than a year

    Pros

    Possibilities for great learning for new nurses, pay is ok, it's a job when there are not too many available, at least 3 nurses (2 cart/floor 1 desk) on the sub-acute most days/evenings (2 11-7).

    Cons

    Very unprofessional all around. Learning would be great if they actually taught, self teaching as a new grad is NOT a good idea. Many nurses who have worked there for a long time are downright mean-they will rush your narcotic count, give you sub-par report-not safe for the nurse or patient. Some nurses will help and answer questions others not so much. Going to work feeling dread at how you will be treated by the staff is awful. CNA's are either great or awful, no in between. Nurse to patient ratio is awful 1 nurse for 22-26 patients. Non-stop work too much to do and not enough time to do it properly. There are some awesome employees but too many awful ones to balance it out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people, give them a reason to stay, better schedules, get involved and see how your employees are doing, better orientation for new nurses, do not allow work place bullying to occur. So much to fix but it will likely never happen.

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

    Pros

    Decent nursing staff. 3 SLP tx rooms (pro) which are barely accessible for wheelchairs and barely fit a wheelchair (con). Rehab aides.

    Cons

    Rehab positions: Extremely high productivity standards which are rarely obtainable. Horrible scheduling system. Hand written documentation. Rehab Program manager is extremely passive agressive. Rehab (corporate management and program manager) not knowledgeable regarding SLP duties and does not wish to become so. Program manager has actually verbalized that she thinks SLPs are a pain. Nashua, NH building is huge.
