I worked at Kindred Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

National company; as I mentioned previously, I was working with RehabCare when the merger with Kindred went through, which only consolidated its market share by expanding it in acute care as well as LTC setting.

Cons

The only reason I left after almost 6 years was, in my opinion, my immediate superior and her supervisor were losing the main focus of patient care and it was becoming all about the "numbers" and profit all the time. Being in management since 1999, I thought I knew (and, I was running the book of business well) the drill, however, it wasn't "enough' for these two. Hence, I parted ways.

Advice to Management

    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great to see acutely ill people with chronic medical problems improve. Pt. length of stay allows for deeper understanding of health needs as well as ability to develop deeper understanding of psychosocial needs. Staff has deep level of commitment to pt and families and in providing the best possible care. No visiting hours allows for better family interactions.

    Cons

    Physically demanding as most pt require assistance with majority of ADL's. Families can be a challenge as they it is difficult to understand the long term effects and prognosis of chronic illness. A lot of times the families live out of town and are insecure with leaving loved ones. More equipment would be so welcomed.

    Advice to Management

    Provide equipment needed to provide timely care and inprove staff satisfaction.
