  1. Need more staff

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Very flexible with staff and scheduling.

    Cons

    It seemed like the entire staff was understaffed, which eventually wore down all of the good employees that they had. This made it difficult to spend the time with the residents that you should as a nurse aide.

    Advice to Management

    More staff would be very beneficial in improving the overall patient care.

    Its a great place to work the staff are friendly and caring. Also room for advancement.

    Cons

    can't think of any, its a great place to work. Maybe the only thing would be the hours. I wanted the staff to work a 10 hour shift to allow for a relief person.

    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Kindred appreciates all of their staff. -Administrative staff are aware of situations that occur with the direct patient care (rare in healthcare facilities) - Possibilities for bonuses based on performance -Good work is recognized. I received a card from a supervisor one day that simply thanked me for picking up extra shifts.

    Cons

    -They expect your best -All work is expected to be finished before leaving the building. This can mean leaving an hour or two after your scheduled to leave. - frequent policy changes - frequent inservices -Aides and nursing staff will be called off of work if there are not enough patients
