    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare

    Pros

    Free Turkey on Thanksgiving weeeee

    Cons

    Workloads are too large-completely impossible to do. So pt care has to be missed. Pts at increased risk due to the fact that most are in isolation and we never have the time to glove/gown/wash properly. Computer system is very bad and on a regular workload you will spend 6 hours a day charting which is again less time for pt care. Equipment is archaic and life saving equipment does not work frequently. There are few electrical plugs and pts are crowded into rooms. I would not put my loved one here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change computer system in order to streamline time. Update electrical, vacuum, and Oxygen systems. Instill max workloads and call in additional staffing when those loads are exceeded.

    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.

    Help is not available when needed, too many patients for too little staff equals poor patient care!

    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare

    Pros

    Some of the staff are helpful and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Many of the staff do not care about patients or their outcomes. Some nurses are truly busy working while others are just lazy. You always have one or two of thsee nurses in my experience, but to have so many in a small hospital is toxic. Also, little to no management help. When concerns are brought to attention they are usually swept under the rug.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be prevent on the floor to encourage aND enforce proper care!

    Pros

    Co workers are friendly. They will work with your school schedule. The health savings account helps you cope with poor medical insurance.

    Cons

    Low pay. Poor employee moral. Horrible benefits. Not very much paid time off. You will be worked to death.

    Pros

    Great co-workers that understand the struggle.

    Cons

    High patient load, team disappearing on you, management rarely there and when they are there they offer minimal help. You're on your own most of the time and take the blunt of the criticism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more help and you promote well-being of the employee yet do not offer enough time off for the staff to obtain that balance.
