davita
Pct (Former Employee), Ocala, FLNovember 21, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: long hours
Working at davita was a great experience. A work day consist of cannulating 8 to 10 patients and hooking then up to th dialysis machine. I learned alot of dialysis and how most people got on dialysis. The hardest part of the job was hearing that a patient had past away.

love this company
charge nurse (Current Employee), Chicago, ILNovember 21, 2014
Pros: pt interactions
Cons: getting up early
First is patient familiarity. You will see the same patients three to four times. This can be good. Of course you will learn about them; you can tell by looking at them if there is something acutely wrong. They will develop a trust relationship with you which you may not find with other venues where your patients rarely see you.

Second is more than – more... likely it will be a nurse led clinic. This means I schedule dialysis related appointments, fax treatment sheets, call hospitals and nursing homes for follow up. I may even have to file documents directly into charts. In a larger setting there will be more aides to do this for you but sometimes in the dialysis clinic if you want a job done right you have to "do it yourself."

Third There's a water treatment system to learn, and hemodialysis machines to learn how to operate and troubleshoot. You will have to keep an eye on infection control because there's several patients in the clinic. You'll have technicians and LVNS working under you of course however I like to know inside and out how to perform my job.

You wake up very early and have 4 10 hour shifts if you want and basically have 3 days off.

Dialysis becomes very routine sometimes even though it is a highly specialized field, there's only 3 medications you will routinely give and maybe 10 PRN medications. I've been doing this for 6 years and I'm getting bored. yet there are times when some patients have MIs, CVAs, etc on the machine and that patient require your quick response. As soon as you think this is routine job, something like a patient going out on a machine, will keep you on your toes, and put all of your nursing skills into play.

The hardest part of my job is waking up early @ 3:30am.
The most enjoyable part is my patient interactions
The patients are what keeps me dedicated to nursing. – less

This was the worst place I have every worked. The management is very poor. Does not have any medical background. Many of the co workers were not nice. If you were not of their culture they did not talk to you and many times were very rude.

Hard work, on your feet all day long. I learned that some dialysis patients are the meanest people.The management sucks. Some co-workers are unreliable.

Certified Clinical Hemodialyis Technician (Current Employee), Decatur, GANovember 5, 2014
Pros: inservices, making patients smile
Cons: short breaks, standing all day, compensation
I look forward to helping the patients get through their dialysis treatments mentally, physically and emotionally on a daily basis. I've learned to be patient, to listen and also to be alert and aware of my surroundings at all times. I work well with my coworkers and have a great rapport with the patients. At any given time they know they can come to – more... me and ask me for anything work related. The hardest part of my job is knowing these patients are uneducated when entering into dialysis for the first time. I think patients should be educated prior to starting dialysis when diagnosed with Renal Disease. The most enjoyable part is knowing I helped someone get through another day whether it be patients, staff or family members. – less
