    Pros

    Across the corporate, regional, and field levels, there are great people to interact with on a daily basis. The company has good vision for the future of healthcare.

    Cons

    Healthcare remians mostly a government reimbursed based buisness. It's difficult for even the best operating managers to succeed against significant reimbursement headwinds.

    Very poor. Nurse managers are always fired. No stability. CEO invisible except to make new policies

    I worked at Kindred Healthcare full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Salary is not bad. 12 hour shifts for nursing and respiratory. That is it!

    Cons

    No one will discuss the health benefits upon hire. Costs and deductible are very high. Salaries are frozen. No contribution to retirement.
    Critical patients. Poor doctors - physicians do not stay because conditions are so poor.
    You are labeled ifyou do not want or are not able to work loads of overtime. Never enough staff
    When working 3 12 hour shifts, working more is difficult. Constant calls at home to work more.
    No consideration for having a family, children, or needing sleep.
    Good nurse manager was let go. She actually cared. Nurse managers do not stay because they are abused.In 10 years there have been 8 or 9 nurse managers. Either walk out or are fired......what does that tell you.
    Upper managment does not care
    Admissions keep coming whether staff can handle them safely or not.
    Incentive are at Tshirt.......really? A T Shirt from the CEO when something is good.
    Nursing is so stressed and stretched to the max it is impossible to feel like patients receive good care.
    Very frustating for good nurses - so they do not stay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new management team starting from the CEO

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
