    Pros

    Good schedule, management and teamwork. Was a fun atmosphere. Pay was decent. Health insurance offered as an option even to part time employees

    I have no words of advice to management at this time. They were great and treated me

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

    Pros

    Honestly, the co workers are the best part . Other than that the Autonomy that nurses have vs at an STACH .

    Cons

    The way the company is managed from a nursing standpoint. I came from a magnet hospital and nurses were respected , as far as opinions and general concerns on how to create a better environment. And improve care . These people don’t give 2 craps about the staff or truly about the patients. Only hospitals in my 15 years of nursing were there is never a nurses meeting or any feedback. With all the negative reviews one would think they would try to get to the bottom of the problem which I can tell you part of it is from staffing. The key to success is continuity of care! How are you gonna have that when you can’t even keep the nurses! You can’t give them help where it’s needed ! Only time CEO is present is when requested due to complaints. How’s about looking for ways to prevent them . How’s about be PRESENT and not just ..... there. Just about Everyone at this particular kindred is burned and looking for somewhere else to go . Is it really that hard to appreciate those who work hard to provide care . Well , i sure hope not if they plan on remaining open ....

    Advice to Management

    Education, acknowledge and reward the efforts of the workers. Stop being so cheap and make sure the staff isn’t drowning and do Whatever it takes to properly train and retain your employees. You patients and families will Thank you for it .Don’t ignore the bottom line . Stop focusing on that tired customer service line this isn’t retail it’s a hospital, and people want someone genuine not what the want to here . That comes back to bite you ....

    Pros

    By far the best Nurse manager and supervisors I have EVER worked with in the 14 years I’ve been in healthcare! Very supportive of staff and make work environment positive and encouraging to good performance. Work is rewarding and challenging. Pay seems to generally be more than area hospitals. This is one of the top 5 largest companies in the USA and relocating is also a possibility! There is also great staffing/agency opportunities.

    Cons

    When pt census is low there is an occasional chance of being called off and placed on call. Not excessively.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
