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

I worked at Kindred Healthcare full-time for 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.

    I worked at Kindred Healthcare as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Was able to work independently
    Most of the staff was nice
    Leadership was fair

    Cons

    Inquired about the open part time position and was told I didnt have enough expierience however they wanted me to work per diem and do full time hours but not pay benefits
    Had to often cover call for up to two weeks straight with no breaks because other "Techs" didnt want to do it.
    Some of the staff took no pride in thier work
