    Pros

    HAVING OPPORTUNITY TO BE PART OF SUCH A PHENOMENAL TEAM - ALBEIT SHORT

    Cons

    Not getting intense orientation as promised and working hard but not being properly equipped and falling thru cracks and not being heard

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your Regional ops / Clinical Mgrs stay in touch with the People who PROVIDE the care and not just the ED as the ED may report only what they WANT to not what really is....

    Pros

    Kindred takes great care of their employees with competitive rates. Vast resources on KNECT for clinical knowledge. Plenty of opportunities for growth within the company

    Cons

    Always appears that the people who are promoted come from outside of the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Ground level employees are the base for growth. Continue to keep them happy, and I would anticipate growth to continue.

    I have been working at Kindred Healthcare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The staff is really great, licensed nurse and RNs are very hands on. Excellent customer service.

    Cons

    Low rate, and very overwhelming work load at times when you are short staff.
     Nurses are the phlebotomist, wound care, case managers, CNA's

    Advice to Management

    Administration doesn't listen to their staff.
    Employee satisfaction rate decreased, Patient survey was also low, Hospital acquired infection going up. And they wonder why???? They have a good workers, HARD WORKING nurses. Nursing shortage can be solved by not getting them overwhelmed and paying them right.
