Pros

I liked the people I worked with. They all WANTED to do a good job

Cons

Worked for Kindred 6.5 years and had NO pay raise since the day I started.
Company seemed too driven by profit. It seemed all about the budget, not the employees.
High turn over.

Advice to Management

Realize that the cost of replacing a valuable employee is more than doing the right things to keep them.

    Pros

    Caring employees - invested in their patients recovery. Quarterly competencies on equipment, transfer methods. Keeps skill levels up.

    Cons

    Kindred initiated an IPOD system to log in/out patient times - employees can spend up to an hour trying to get all of the patient minutes logged and distributed properly. Feel like micromanagement. Employees pushed to average 85-90% efficiency - yet this ipod system waste time and is RUDE to have to do in front of patients - makes patients feel the focus is on minutes/cost. Barrier with seniors - have to explain we aren't texting and that this actually part of logging them in. THEN we have to duplicate the distribution again in the hospitals computer system.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the IPODS! Hire a Patient Care Coordinator. The DOR micromanages the department and is NURSE not a PT and does not understand the time and investment into a patients recovery that a PT has. It is not the same. Initiate a 360 review of managers.
