Great company to work for. Supervisors and management values team mates feed back. Weekly team meetings with game ice breakers, always fun, different team mate ran the meetings every week. Supervisors and management would assist with month end billing when facilities were late getting reports in.

Patient Care Technician (Current Employee), Greenwood, SCNovember 12, 2014
Pros: bonus
Cons: long hours
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. Too many people calling in late or calling out for work. The hardest part is working 10 or more hours a day, The most enjoyable part of yjr job is prolonging patients lives

Productive Workplace
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

Very team oriented, fun and challenging job
Facility Administrator, CEO (Former Employee), Wilmington, DENovember 3, 2014
Pros: team oriented, open culture
Company culture is that of team, everyone works together as a team. Benefits are outstanding. Programs within the company for employees are very generous, for example ability to donate PTO to a coworker who is dealing with a catastrophic illness of their own or a family memember requiring them to miss work, scholarship program for employees children, – more... to emergency help for employees who may have lost their homes or possessions in nateral disaster, house fires etc, company would match all of employees donations to such causes. – less

High expectations, little training, a lot of rah,rah with no backing
Charge Nurse (Former Employee), San Joaquin Valley, CAOctober 31, 2014
Cons: short or no breaks, often greater than 12 hr days, pressured to work more days than scheduled.
The company has a great reputation for being a "team oriented," fun and fulfilling place to work. In reality, the CA San Joaquin Valley region is dysfunctional from the top down. The Directors are wet behind the ear Business school grads with no medical/clinical background. The bottom line is the dollar with little concern for the patients themselves. – more... The clinics are run at bare minimal staffing which can often be dangerous.

If there are any problems, the management is always ready to point the finger at the staff and never take any responsibility for the way things are out on the floor. – less

Dialysis Technician (Current Employee), Mount Pleasant, MIOctober 27, 2014
Pros: knowing i make a difference insomeones life
Cons: losing patients to death
My day usually starts by opening the unit at 4:00 A.M. followed by getting the water room up and running by mixing the bicarbonate for the patients machines, sitting up the machines in 15 stations and getting ready for the patients to enter the door at 5:30. The first out of 4 patients I will be taking care of go on at 5:30. I then initiate the first – more... treatment, monitoring vital signs and documenting all patient information in the computer. I then go on to do the next 3 patients on the first shift. I have a minimum of 10-12 patients I take care of on a Daily bases. Once a patients treatment is completed I pull needles and terminate their treatment and set the machine up for the next patient. Then for each pod of stations we have we have side duties that we need to preform each day. Since DaVita has bought our company I have learned a lot of new policies and procedures. Management and co-workers are fun to work with and the are all team players and I work well with them all. The hardest part of my job is trying not to get involved and close to the patients. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing I make a difference in our patients life and I am giving them the chance of living a longer life. – less
