A place to work as a team
Clinical/Charge Nurse (Former Employee), Clinton, MDMarch 6, 2014
My typical day at work starts every shift by making rounds, and assessing my patients. I prioritize my activities for the shift by checking the lab results, patient’s need, and staffing. As the charge nurse, I like to make rounds to address any urgent matters, safety issues and any concerns from patients or staff. It is sometimes difficult trying to – more... address all concerns in a timely manner. The most enjoyable part of my job is working as a team to give the best service to our members. I have learned from experience to always be sensitive to patient’s need and listen to your peers for improvement. – less

Tedious and depressing work environment. Too mant people with too many problem . Too often.
Biomedical equipment service technician (Former Employee), Rockford IlMarch 5, 2014
Pros: generous vacation
Cons: unable to use generous vacation due to work obligations. incompetent maintenance management.
Davita wants their people to make Davita their religious cult. They use the patients needs as an excuse to coerce you in to making everything else in your life come second. There has to be more to life than work. I was terminated by this company because I no longer could maintain a balance between my work obligations and my personal obligations.( Have – more... a life). In my job searching I avoid applying to companies that are fortune 500 and talk of " fast paced work environment" I work to live . I don't live to work. – less

Just not for me
Central Registration Representative (Former Employee), Tacoma, WAMarch 4, 2014
Pros: healthcare, bounes, paid time off, fun events
Cons: parking, working in the middle of the city
I really loved the job overall at Davita, but I wasnt able to interact with customers. A typical day would start off by printing out all my reports and going thru my work bucket. Figuring out which ones needs to be tended to first. If a patient was going to another state and needed the insurance to be loaded properly for transfer, this needed to be – more... done right away.I learned alot about Medicare and different type of medical software systems at Davita. And about kidney dialysis. The hardest part of this job was keeping everything in order. I am a really organized person, and i hate to say this, but the work load was alot. Your in charge of hundreds of patients with alot of facilities. It does become overwhelming at times, but not impossible to get thru. I loved that they were always sending you to some kind of training. either a system update to sending you to a facility to see what dialysis is all about. My co workers were great. I worked along side my mom here and loved it. Davita just wasn't the right job for me, I like to be involved more than just sitting behind a desk in a tall office building, but i sure did learn alot for this job. – less

Working with dedicated teamates thriving to push our company to it's full potental.
Patient Care Technician (Current Employee), St. Louis, MOFebruary 18, 2014
Pros: good benefits, exellent company
Cons: continuous death of the patients
A typical work day at DaVita is very challenging but I have a strong team behind me to back me up. Starting at 4:45 am, we begin the work day by preparing the water and stringing the machines. We may encounter difficult or unhappy patients, but we try our best to put a smile on their face by the time their treatment is complete. By working with such – more... an experienced team I've learned patience, self- control, integrity, dependability and so much more. My Facility has pushed me and the rest of our team to be the best techs we can be under any circumstances. The hardest part of my job is growing to love my patients and letting them go when they die after a while. Despite the downfalls, the fullfilling part of my job is knowing that I make a difference in someones life everyday when I dialyize them. – less
