    Pros

    Flexibility in schedule, independent throughout day.

    Cons

    Paid per visit vs hourly or salaried which is difficult to predict yearly pay and can cause some RN's to see too many patients per day resulting in poor quality outcomes.

    Advice to Management

    Change pay structure for RN's out in the field who are your front line staff and the face of Kubdred at Home.

    Pros

    I've seen both sides of the LTACH marketing and sales aspect of patient assessment and work flow and the support that is needed to traverse the complexities of helping families to get to the highest level of post-hospital care which I am a very strong fan of. Kindred's approach is a full on team effort, no Prima-Donna's watching everyone else pull the load, they are really invested in the entire process and extend an impressive effort to assist the families and patients.

    Cons

    Really bad Yelp reviews, One Star, really Yelp!!!...it's unconscionable how Yelp has deterred many families from getting the highest level of care for the sickest patients and has put a down the hardest working nurses and doctors and clinical team I've had the priviledge of working with. The only con I can complain about is the unfair reputation that yelp has put upon this group tha serves with dignity and steadfast perserverence.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, your staff does appreciate the kindness and support you so generously extend! It's time for the 401K match is reinstated.

    Pros

    Transitional care means changing patients, most of whom are grateful for the care. Long terms nurses are dedicated and excellent. Psychologist is on top of his game.

    Cons

    The mix of LTC and rehab is a challenge to balance. While Kaiser is responsive to staff, many private doctors are aloof and need prodding to respond to requests.

    Advice to Management

    Train your new staff; be willing to invest in the people you hire
