    Orientation is non-existent but they don't mind writing you up for anything and everything.

    More hands on orientation is needed, both on the floor and with the computer system.

    Pros

    Benefits are competitive, supportive supervisor. Pay is good. Kindred compares well with its competition.

    Cons

    High productivity requirements. No raise in 4 years. Horrible health insurance ( although this is everywhere these days). Cooperate America at it's finest, the bottom line comes first the patient comes second

    Advice to Management

    To RVP's and above Get an iPad and practice in a facility that you are over and be 88% productive and utilize your mobile device 100% with under 5 minutes and get your documentation done pos and do functional treatments for a week straight and then let us know if you think your expectations are realistic

    Pros

    you get plenty of over time if you want it. max patient load is 6, but most of the time you will have only 4

    Cons

    poor management. upper management can care less about you and don't even know who you are most of the time, mid management pretends to care, they listen but don't hear you.

    Advice to Management

    screen your applicants more carefully, don't just hire a warm body. when your employee comes to you with a concern pay attention

    Great Teamwork is a huge pro and everyone works well together like a second family. Great patients and family to care for!

    Cons

    Admin focused on physicians and often seemed they were more important than the frontline staff but overall good teamwork btwn MDs and front line team!

    Advice to Management

    Front line staff like to be acknowledged for doing a good job spend more time acknowledging for a job well done!!

    Pros

    The staff worked together well and everyone was concerned with the patients .The therapy team except for our supervisor was very nice. We all worked together great as a team as did all of the nursing staff.

    Cons

    Management in the company is horrible. They say they care about staff but never listen to them. They call meetings and ask for ideas to improve things but nothing is ever done. Management just continues to push for numbers and doesn't care about the patients at all. It makes it very hard for people who do care about the people we are taking care of

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to pay attention when everyone keeps quitting and start to wonder why. Maybe start listening to your staff or ask them why all their colleagues quit. Like I said, management does not listen to anyone and does not care.
