FMCNA IS THE WORST PLACE TO WORK!Mar 1, 2009 - Hemodialysis Technician in Mesa, AZRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
There are really no good reasons to work with FMCNA. It has been a complete mess working here since RCG was bought out by FMCNA. The only true reason I can think of that would be a good reason is that you get attatched to your patients since you see them very frequently.
The management is horrible, they never praise you for the good things that you do. They overload you with extra work that they are supposed to be completing. They belittle you infront of your patients and make you feel that you dont know what you are doing and that you can't do anything right. The Management has favorite employees that get away with everything. The upper management never sees what goes on in the clinic and they just go by what thier clinic managers say goes on. The techs are treated like crap and they are blamed for everything, including labs that they have no control over. The techs get yelled at for HCT and HGB's levels that are low and also Albumin levels that are low and the dietician is supposed to be assisting in this and encouraging patients to take care of this. Techs are yelled at if they do not do the job of tech, dietician and socialworker, because they do not hire enough of these other professions to take care of the demand. I have handled many of these tasks because we did not have a social worker or a dietician at one time. It has made my time with the company miserable and I wish that RCG would have never sold to FMCNA. They just plain suck, don't waste your time with this crappy company, trust me you will not like it. As soon as I can obtain a better job I will leave and I know almost all of the rest of my fellow employees will too. There is a very high turnover due to the horrible company.Continue reading

Glad I got to experience the world of renal nutritionMay 19, 2023 - Dietitian in Miami, FLRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Very thorough training and exposure to the world of dialysis - you learn both in-center and home modalities. You develop plans of care with the interdisciplinary team. You are given a good amount of autonomy to do your job and your input is valued by most. Some patients will challenge you to really use your skill set as clinician, educator, coach and champion.
Too much focus on selling company products, like the pharmacy and binders. Endless number of meetings. Too much lip service given to the workers in the trenches as 'Heroes' yet the pay doesn't keep up with inflation. Middle management heavy corporate structure. We need more folks on the floors doing direct patient care and FEWER people behind computers dreaming up more slogans and initiatives.Continue reading
