Medical Secretary (Former Employee) – 6606 Carnegie Avenue Cleveland, Oh 44103 – June 8, 2017
I enjoyed interacting with patients and staff building essential relationships. As a medical secretary I felt rewarded in assisting staff have positive outcomes daily. The hours at Centers for Dialysis Care were not suitable for a single parent like myself. I felt like I was working on a production line opposed to providing effective patient care. At times I felt alienated when needing help working as a dialysis technician.
Technical Manager of Acute Biomedical Services (Former Employee) – Beachwood, OH – June 22, 2017
A growing company with a lot of potential for advancement. Staff and management are well educated in the field. Good Training programs. Benefits are good and comparable to other dialysis companies. Overall a great place to work.
RN (Current Employee) – Center for dialysis care – August 28, 2016
I give acute dialysis treatments, this is unpredictable. Admission and discharges indicate our work day. Our schedule is therefore flexible. Cooperate has been seen going to great lengths to get machines repaired, get agency staff when needed. A smaller company is where your voice is heard! I'm known and respected. There are no cartoon characters, no mayor, no village. We are simply a team that puts patients first every single time!
Benefits are amazing, better than Davita! Great to work for a small company.
Chief Human Resources Officer (Current Employee) – corp. offices. Shaker Heights – November 9, 2015
Fast paced setting with multiple competing priorities. challenging work environment. committed staff . Excellent people outcomes. large company stetting with the advantages of a small provider. Love the patients!
The patients become family because of the frequency you see them. Patient death can wear on you over time. The Corporate side is truly trying to make CDC a better place. Each center is slowly improving their standards.
Providing direct nursing care to dialysis patients, machine set up, initiating dialysis treatments, cannulating access sites, monitoring and assessing patients throughout their treatments, administering dialysis medications, tracking lab values and notifying physicians when appropriate, initiating care plans, overseeing the work of multiple technicians.
It's a great job but it's a lot of work. The hours are long and you have to make good timing to take breaks or you just won't get one. The learning aspect sucks in my opinion. Classroom knowledge for 2 days and three days working in clinics with just one or two demonstrations of how it is done along with testing that same week. Company can let you go at any given time without notice. Some nurses are good but most sit around and don't help out. Patients have the upper hand on complaints but some are right with complaints not being followed up in a proper manner. Most technicians were not following safety standards and that's the overlooked norm.
stressful work environment, no adequate time between patients to give proper care
DIALYSIS TECHNICIAN CLINICAL TRAINING INSTRUCTOR (Former Employee) – Canfield, Ohio – November 5, 2014
Patient Ratio was feasible, staff was friendly. High stress and demanding job if you don't have time management skills. This is an early rise job, usually starting between 4 and 5 am depending if you are the opener or not.
I really liked being there for my externship site from college. I learned quite abit from them.
Externship (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – July 23, 2014
The staff there was most of the time really great to be around. I also liked the patients (or most of them any way). I learned how to make their bleach solutions. I learned how to clean the dialysis machines, the chairs. I also learned how to sanitize the dialysis machines at the end of the day as well as the chairs. It was a very facinating experience for me.
