poor benefits, high turn over, poor management, poor staffing ratio to patient acuity
Dialysis Nurse (Current Employee) – Claremore, OK – June 9, 2017
Davita has poor benefits but offsets those with bonuses if goals met. The goals are set toward pt compliance and lab values in response to treatment. These are made difficult due to the timing of the lab draw is on davita's lab timing instead of the dr's order. Davita has a high turn over rate possibly due to the nurse/pt ratio is not set in accordance with acuity. This setting is fast paced and has acute emergency situations that require immediate intervention which is ignored due to budget. I have advanced my iv skills, organization skills, prioritization skills, documentation skills, assessment skills, and delegation skills. I am the infection control nurse and have learned and implemented interventions in accordance to policy, nursing experience, and research. I absolutely adore my pts and my relationship with them as well as the team work with my teammates either when I am the charge nurse or staff nurse. A typical day starts at 4am preparing medication and setting up machines until the pts begin arriving. As the pts arrive, assessment begins and continues throughout the treatment as well as the documentation, priority of pts are made upon each assessment throughout the treatment, delegation and good communication and relationship with teammates is essential while adjusting fluid removal upon dr orders and the pts physical ability to endure, then discharge of the pt if hemostasis is achieved and v/s are wnl.
