    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 :)

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

    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.
