I have been working at Kindred Healthcare part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Very team-oriented facility. Wages/Compensation are right where they should be and increase annually at a fair rate. The company also has some great benefits such as tuition reimbursement allowing for growth within the company at an ease to my wallet :)

Cons

Other departments could do more to improve the overall cleanliness and conditions of the facility.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work, I really enjoy working here!

    I worked at Kindred Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive pay, great co-workers & loved the residents & their families. Unit mgrs were active in care of pts & very aware of the condition of the pts on their unit & overall team players.

    Cons

    Mgmt could be more involved with night shift - rarely any communication/feedback, commonly underestimated how busy it truly was on nights with all the extra preparation work & "catch-all" tasks that noc shift was responsible for. Upper mgmt didn't understand acuity vs numbers from unit to unit - overstaffed on one unit & understaffed on another bc would make shift assignments based on numbers not acuity. You would often bounce from unit to unit making it difficult to establish a routine & pts didn't like the inconsistency.

    Advice to Management

    Overall good mgmt team, but need to give more feedback (both good & bad) to staff which encourages growth of your employees. Consider working a few night shifts from time to time. Hire someone with experience in scheduling to reduce high turnover rate r/t bouncing employees around.

    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    CONVIENT LOCATION IN THE CITY

    Cons

    Patients and employees are at thru bottom of Kindred's importance. The almighty dollar is their highest concern. Passing by on the KHAT for minimal staff possible (save a buck), only in house incentive to encourage morale is one lunch ticket, (save a buck), totally ignores Nurse Day Week, not even a verbal acknowledgement (save a buck), took away yearly crawfish boil for employees (save a buck), took away employee of the month incentive $ 1.00, now receives a lunch ticket (save a buck), no raises, (save a buck) *****note upper administration receives their yearly bonuses. No 401K match (save a buck), Horrible medical insurance, must pay full deductible before seeing any physician or receiving prescriptions (save a buck), No acknowledgement WHAT SO EVER for staff from lower management down. If any morale boosters or incentives or given it is to the CEO and possibly other upper administration.Why wound anyone want to work here as attested by extremely high turnover. I cannot say of other Kindred facilities, but Kindred New Orleans is only about the CEO and the almighty buck.

    Advice to Management

    Stop sending people to investigate.the staff. They do not remain long enough to do any harm. Upper administration is running out of people to dump on then fired. Where are they going to hide now. CMS will eventually catch on that patients do not meet requirements. They are just a number in a bed in order to get the almighty dollar!
