Pay was good, for a college student.
CNA (Former Employee), Ogden, UTSeptember 11, 2014
Pros: pay
Cons: mangement, and workload
This company was alright to work for. As the title suggests, that pay was good, but that was about it. The resident to cna ratio, was a little too high for my liking. Co-workers were great to work with, management could use some improvement. But overall, a decent place to work.

I ve never met a more commited Therapy staff than this group of women. Our patients were our top priority.
pta (Current Employee), Washington, moSeptember 10, 2014
The company upper management needs to keep an eye on middle management since some (most?) don t perform their jobs...or maybe they are over worked.. The lower management was great.

Very productive and enjoyable place to work
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Aurora, COSeptember 9, 2014
A typical day at work for me was very fast paced but rewarding. I learned how to work in effectively in a team environment and independently. I enjoyed working in a company where management was willingly and opened to listen and take care of the needs of their employees. My co-workers and I always worked together as a team to give our patients the best – more... quality care we could possibly give them. The hardest part of the job was when we were under staff and our patient count was high. The most enjoybale part of the job was making a difference in my patients life. – less

A team building environment, a very physically demanding job but with teamwork and handwork towards each staff and the patient
Full Time Physical Therapist (Former Employee), Wayne, NJSeptember 8, 2014
Pros: growth and fulfilling job
Cons: physically demanding, especially on your low back
I learned a lot within 6 months working here and it was physically demeaning job transferring and lifting vent dependent patient in order to improve the patient's lung capacity and cardiovascular health. Because of teamwork and team building, I do believe on proper etiquette and being professional towards the rehab department and nursing department. – more... Without teamwork, this working environment will be draining physically, emotionally and mentally. – less

Pay slightly above average, everything else bad.
RN (Former Employee), Kokomo, INAugust 31, 2014
Pros: great co-workers
Cons: over worked and understaffed.
Hired part time and was scheduled to work 6 days a week and every weekend for 3 weeks. Extremely short staffed as they couldn't keep employees. DON never met me pre-employment or after I was hired. Saw her once as I was walking past her door but never talked to her. Everyone was either quitting or wanted to. Some 15 to 20 yr employees went to other – more... facilities. Worked with 1 or 2 CNAs taking care of 40 residents with 1 resident a 1 on 1. Co-workers were great but overworked and tired. The best parts of the job were the residents, the coworkers, and the paycheck as they did pay slightly higher than my previous employer. Would definitely not work there again. – less

Management is blind
CNA (Current Employee), Cheyenne, WYAugust 29, 2014
Pros: residents
Cons: managers.
Love the work, love the residents. I was happy, residents were happy, it worked. Managers decided to shuffle the staff, now I work with people I do not like, to spite repeatedly asking not to be paired with them. At the station where I used to work, falls have increased, residents seek me out.

Managers will lecture us on the degnity of residents, then – more... tell us to make them play games designed for toddlers; or call them the very same nicknames we are specifically told NOT to use.

When I was hired, I was told I would be recompenced for my lisencing expenses if I stayed a year, After the year passed, I was told "We don't do that anymore." – less

fun staff
Phlebotomist (Current Employee), Santa Ana, CAAugust 26, 2014
Pros: small hospital
Cons: health insurance
Its not as busy as other hospitals so you work at a great pace but very efficient. We come in orders are already printed so all we have to do is go to the rooms and draw the patients. We execute the specimen after. Coworkers are great. They all help out when in need.
Hardest part of the job are basically the hard sticks but theres always help. I enjoy – more... it because its graveyard so its not so busy. – less

Don't show it if you are smarter than your boss
supervisor (Former Employee), Hammond, INAugust 25, 2014
Pros: good coworkers that try hard
Cons: lack of compassion from managment
Taking care of very sick patients is rewarding but the politics of a for profit business makes it hard to enjoy your work. Most of management has no empathy and when there is a good manager they leave. Hard to make a point. They don't really listen.

Exciting place to work with great treats.
Certified nurse assistant. (Former Employee), Houston, TXAugust 20, 2014
Pros: a great place to work.
Cons: short and insufficient hours of work per week.
The work at Kindred Hospital, Houston Medical Center campus was the most excited working area. The challenges were rewarding in that they toughened us to handle stressful situations such the daily experience at kindred hospital. A great place to learn for new comers to the field of direct patient care. Most co-workers were very warm hearted and easy – more... going. The hardest part was how to satisfy the family and patients most of who were very frustrated by the prognosis of their diseases. Free parking and occasional free breakfast and lunch meals. – less
