    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare

    Pros

    work 3-12 hour shifts. 4 days off. Good tuition reimbursement with scholarship opportunities.

    Cons

    Minimal or no salary increases. Healthcare is a business. The bottom line dictates nurse patient ratios. Workers feel they are not valued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to value their current employees. It makes no since to constantly train new employees and do nothing to retain them.

    I worked at Kindred Healthcare

    Pros

    Decent pay and learning new skills

    Cons

    Management, staffing, low employee morale, punitive environment, high acuity patients, lots of favortism, and no raises

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please value your good employees, there are lots of them that work hard everyday and are very dedicated to providing good care. Stop staffing off of numbers and staff by patient acuity. There should never be cost on patient care.
