    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.

  6. Gave them the over 10 years of handwork and dedication, but no loyalty

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

    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.
