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

overworked and underpaid
Chronic Clinical Hemodialysis Technician (Current Employee), Norfolk, VAOctober 18, 2014
Pros: tuition reimbursement
Cons: pay sucks
If learning to work with dialysis patients is something that you are interested in then this is a great start, however there is no great room for promotion unless you go to school for nursing.

my time management skills are used daily
AA (Former Employee), Naples, FLOctober 18, 2014
Pros: i do get to help people improve there heath
Cons: for the area the pay is low
I handle two clinic's and all that is needed to run both, from order the material to treat the patients, to the supplies for the office. From the time I walk in I get pulled in a lot of directions, chart up dates, reports, insurance verification, handling admissions, transportation, and helping with the patients getting their treatments. This is a fast – more... paced line of work you have to be organized or you will drowned the training is not much so most of what I learned was hands on. I enjoy most of the people I work with and the patients, this was a learning experience for me. I had never worked in the medical field, their is a lot to know, everyday I'm learning something new. – less

Long hours but great team environment
Inpatient Acute RN (Current Employee), Wichita, KSOctober 13, 2014
Pros: team work environment in the unit
Cons: long hours, not enough personal time
This is a good company to work for, but the long hours are draining. A person could easily work 14-20 hours in one day, 2 times a week. Management is good and the people that I have worked with are nothing but helpful and understanding. I would say the most enjoyable times are when I am working in the unit with the other co-workers and talking with – more... the patients while on dialysis. – less

Great place to work with room for advancement.
Dialysis Technician (Former Employee), Sun City, ArizonaOctober 10, 2014
Pros: 12 hour shifts and lots of over time available.
Cons: low pay to start but small raises come in time or with advancement.
I worked at the Sun City Arizona location and could have not had a better experience. The staff at this particular facility was like family even from the very beginning. There is room for advancement and they promote from within.They also acknowledge and reward staff for a job well done and I believe that says something about the Da Vita culture. The – more... facility administrator and one of the Patient Care Technicians in particular cared a great deal and it showed. Not to say the rest of the staff wasn't fantastic because they were! – less

Does not care about the people who care for the patients
Administrative Assistant/Reuse Technician (Current Employee), Chicago , ILOctober 9, 2014
Pros: bonuses
I initially enjoyed my job with Davita, I thought I would be there for a long time. They cannot keep management there, the technicians were practically running the place. Although they give you the opportunity to move within the company, I would make sure you know all of the specifics of your new position. I changed to a position that I found out after – more... the fact I would not recieve any training for, so I had to learn things as I was told to do them. I was also held in the position I tried to leave, because no one wanted that job so I was made to work 6 days /week and up to 10-12 hours /day. They also rented me out to other facilities and I still had to come back and work at my own facility

I went from a person with no write ups in my file to three back to back. Davita is no a very nice company to work for I was a very loyal employee that was treated very badly in the end. – less
