Good place to work unfortunately there’s no advancement I learn a lot trough this company helping patients everyday by making sure medication was on time we had one of the best management but he took another role and ever since things just went downhill lack of communication. People that I worked around were amazing toughest thing for us was the systems – more... always had problems making it hard for us to get off on time. – less
Acute Dialysis Nurse (Current Employee), Johnstown, PA – December 8, 2013
I perform acute dialysis for acutely ill pts. in the hospital setting. I cover several hospitals in the area. You really never know how busy you are going to be from day to day. There is really no way to determine this. It is just the way acute dialysis is.

Patient Care Technician (Former Employee), Reno, NV – November 28, 2013
Pros: hours and shifts
Cons: not employee friendly
I believe the overall company has a good position on patient care. My particular experience at specific facility was not favorable. I was in training, but was not trained to be a teammate, it was more like a trial.
Disappointed (Former Employee), Denver, CO – November 26, 2013
Pros: helping patients and community
Cons: management, compensation, lack of growth, lack of work/life balance, no 401k match
The only good thing about this company is they help patients and give back to the community. Beware of drinking the kool aide and the village concept is a total joke. Their compensation is low, work/life balance is nonexistent, healthcare benefits expensive and not that great, no match on 401k but they can build an extravagant headquarters, really?? – more... Community first, company second...more like bottom line first and let the big shots reep the benefits while the rest of the "teammates" bust their butts to get the job done. High turnover too! Completely disappointed and hope they can make some changes and actually live up to their 7 Core Values instead of talking about them. – less
Charge/Staff; Chronic/Acute (Former Employee), California – November 16, 2013
Pros: lots of available overtime, on call if desired
Cons: their way or the highway
Hello: Working in an acute, hospital environment offers the RN much more autonomy than in a chronic unit. In a chronic unit I had a technician reinfuse a patient's blood twice so the patient could go outside to smoke a cigarette despite me telling her after the first time not to again do the same. After the second time of reinfusing the patient's blood – more... I told her to go home, I was the relief charge RN that day. The technician called the manager and told the manager I smelled like alcohol; I volunteerd to have my urine and blood submitted for a toxicology assay which both were negative. The company did nothing to reprimand the patient technician; I sought legal representation for litigation. Then there's the Village and 'one for all' propaganda to deal with which actually stifles discourse. – less
Pros: great people, fast pace, independent, mobile
Cons: for me - work/life balance
Love haveing a mobile job that is flexible. I actually can get more work done from home sometime then when going to the office. My peers and administrative support team are great to work with and I suspect will be long life friends. The hardest part of the job is the hours. In Acutes (Hospital Contract Service) we are always "ON" 7/24. Work'life balance – more... is difficult. Getting texted/called at any hour of the day and managing the situation is the reality of the job. The significant impact felt is within the family. I do not feel like I can unplug from work and give my attention to my family fully. I will add that each area will have there own unique challenges and mine happens to be staffing. – less
Pros: setting my own work schedule to accomplish goals.
Cons: sometimes long work hours.
Repairs of dialysis machines.Preventive maintenance of machines and ancillary equipment.Scheduling of outside vendors for building repairs and documenting these repairs.Job satisfaction that everything in my clinics runs smooth,is in compliance and safe treatments for patients dialyzing on these machines and safety in the building.
