    I have been working at Kentfield Rehabilitation & Specialty Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Many good people work here. Really enjoy my work. Love the nursing staff. Very nice facilities. A great place to learn.

    Cons

    Underpaid. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Micromanaged at times. New nurses teaching new nurses as preceptors. Seasoned nurses lacking.


  2. "Small and tight knit community of people trying to do their jobs as best they can to provide excellent patient care."

    I have been working at Kentfield Rehabilitation & Specialty Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are many opportunities to get involved with multidisciplinary committees, different areas of practice, and start projects within your department. You cannot get the same level of involvement in larger organizations as an individual. You get to know everyone from different departments, which makes it easier to find answers and get things done.

    Cons

    There is a definite lack of structured education for staff and a steep learning curve for new employees who are often coming into this hospital as their first job out of school. As a for-profit company, the labor budget is tightly controlled, and staff is often overwhelmed with assigned tasks and little help for the increasing acuity of the patient population. Most experienced staff tend to move on to other opportunities within only a few years due to lack of support/increasing demands on few high performing staff.

    Advice to Management

    Work on retaining a group of experienced and high performing employees to help ease transitions with new and inexperienced employees

    Pros

    We all work together no matter your job title and it is very much appreciated. Great staff who I feel seem very caring and that matters.

    Cons

    The patient to nurse & patient to cna ratio sometimes to high especially because of the level of care needed for these patients..

    Pros

    It's small. All disciplines available on one floor including their own pharmacy and lab. Staff works as a team. Doctors and other disciplines very knowledgeable and approachable.

    Cons

    Most of the time they are out of compliance. Don't follow proper protocols. Management doesn't care about quality of care or safe patient care. Forces charge nurse to be break relief. Often nurses don't get a break. DON acts as charge nurse sometimes not allowing for proper breaks. JCHO nightmare! Labor laws out the window!

    Advice to Management

    Audit your staff and yourself. You're setting up your nurses to fail.

    I have been working at Kentfield Rehabilitation & Specialty Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and awesome coworkers

    Cons

    Poor pay, no acknowledgement for a job well done, no extra if working holiday, nurse to patient ratio is non existent.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a fair wage, increase rate of earning PTO, make the Nursing ratios fair and good staff will stay longer and be happier employees.

    I have been working at Kentfield Rehabilitation & Specialty Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Management cares, nurses work together and are supportive and friendly. Average patient stay is 32 days so nurses get to know them well. Flexible scheduling and fair critiques of performance. I would only recommend this position as a stepping stone to a better career.

    Cons

    Acuity level is higher and job demand is greater. 5:1 staffing ratio can be overwhelming. A majority of the CNA's are not cooperative and some of them are insubordinate with nurses. Very fast paced environment.

    Advice to Management

    4:1 ratios for nurses.

    I have been working at Kentfield Rehabilitation & Specialty Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Great experience in gaining clinical skills and critical thinking. Able to work with many different types of people. Nurses and CNA's are great.

    Cons

    Staffing. The patient to nurse ratio makes it difficult to provide the best quality of care most management expects of us causing stress among the staff which also effects teamwork. Staffing is hard, being cancelled and always getting texts that they are short staffed. There isn't much incentive to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of looking more into for profit, think of the staff. We are the backbone and quality goes down if we aren't supported adequately. This is a very difficult place to work with, with high turn over rates. It is a great stepping stone to get into the major hospitals, but there really is no incentive to work here.

    Pros

    Great people who really care about patients. Smallish staff, family like atmosphere. Good promotion from within for the nursing department - lots of nurse managers were once floor nurses.

    Cons

    Can be stressful, but that's just how working in healthcare is! The IT systems could use some help. Facility is old, but it's under construction so hopefully it will be nicer when completed.
