    Pros

    I have worked for Kindred for over 3 years and in that time I have had many great experiences, I work with a great team and I enjoy coming to work because every day is a new challenge.

    Cons

    The schedule can be a challenge but its all part of the job, the trick is to find that balance between home life and finding time for it while preventing burnout at work.

    Pros

    competitive salary and benefits; the physical plant is kept up to date and maintained; staffing is decent and there is sufficient ancillary staffing

    high turnover in management positions; long hours and no appreciation; no training in the organizations systems or software programs

    provide some training and orientation and in house continuing education to executive staff when they first come on board; this would decrease turnover

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

    Pros

    Very supportive co-workers that will help you as much as they can. The residents are generally nice and are patient with new workers. Management is supportive after having a serious talk. Many opportunities to work doubles and pick up extra shifts. They started paying for bridge tolls.

    Cons

    Management is new (have been there for less than a year) has a blame culture issue with workers. They talk down to staff in public areas on very simple matters that can be brought up privately/as an inservice. There is not enough training for new nurses (4 days approximately on the floor) and some staff trainers have been there for less than a year. There is a clear high staff turnover issue at this facility; they have registry nurses nearly every shift. State is also watching this facility like a hawk, so beware. No patient to nurse ratios so you are overworked just trying to finish med pass and treatments on time.

    Advice to Management

    Train your staff more. Listen to reason about certain issues. Work on supporting staff through med pass times instead of bothering them (includes anyone that is taking away the MAR). Pay your nurses more, the salary is paltry compared to other facilities in the Bay Area.
