Clinic Director (Former Employee) – Muncie, IN – October 25, 2016
A new company that bought previous company I had worked for. They hired a Divisional Manager who fired all 3 managers which I was one of them. This new company had to wait at least one year to remove managers which they did this. While there I started in center programs that benefited the staff and patients. I worked for the previous company for 12 yrs. I had a good relationship with all of the nephrologists that saw patients at the clinic and any one of them will give me an excellent review.
worked at that clinic for 12 yrs
new company removed all clinic managers after 1 year.
Administration Manager (Former Employee) – AZ – April 12, 2016
They make the managers work the floor daily and do all of the admin work on top of it-the VP has no caring for the employees either-it's all about the money-actually in "all" dialysis facilities and I have worked and managed six clinics. People in dialysis are ruthless-very few care for the patients-especially DSI-Period!
A typical day at DSI is to come in clock in and start working your claims. We normally had a certain amount of claims to work monthly. Our phone calls were monitored as well as our production. As far as co-workers we were not allowed to talk amongst one another nor ask for help if needed, we were suppose to figure it out ourselves. I enjoyed the job but overall management was not professional at all.
Lead Clinical Social Worker and Case Manager (Former Employee) – Chula Vista, CA – December 15, 2015
The work environment can be stressful under certain managers. The management take their time with complaints, from patients or employees, but eventually get the job done. The co-workers are all very hard working nurses and technicians. The doctors are top notch and take their job seriously and it was a pleasure to work with the entire staff.
The hard working staff. Good salary compared to other competitors.
No room to grow, no advancement in the position I had as social worker.
Nobody cares about or defends you during tuff times
Corporate Employee (Former Employee) – SC – July 12, 2015
I was a corporate employee twice (laid off twice due to no fault of my own) but started as a secretary. This company is great but the managers are only out for themselves and if you get any kind of complaints against you, you aren't able to defend yourself. My boss avoided conflict at ANY COST and that even meant terminating me when an outside affiliates manager had a personal issue with me & fabricated a reason not to work with me.
I loved being an employee at DSI but just know you are ALWAYS disposable to higher management unless it benefits them. They will get rid of you in a heartbeat and throw you under the bus to make themselves look good.
The nephrology office they work with as an affiliate in SC has AWFUL management but amazing doctors so if you work here you also have to deal with that. The management there finds any way they can to make people's work lives difficult.
Social Worker (Former Employee) – Kapolei, Hawaii – January 23, 2015
I worked as a Social Worker in Hawaii. I had a great Clinic Manager, a great Clinic Director, and really liked the people I worked with in my clinic and at other clinics on the island. The problem was/is that DSI is a major corporation that operates out of Nashville and really has no personal contact with "remote" employees like us. If there is an issue they do not get feedback but assume the worst. The parent company (DSI) is also very restrictive in patient care (not allowed to talk about anything, or help patients with anything that is not 100% directly realted to dialysis - even helping with housing or family issues). They very tighly monitor employee computor use and vere from the emploee handbook when it suits the corporation. I loved the clinic, but the DSI corporation to me was like something out of George Orwell's "1984"
I liked my Clininc Manager, Clinic Director, fellow employees, and patients.
I grew to hate the Corporation - no personal interaction and they were always scrutinizing.
Hemodialysis Technician (Former Employee) – Macon, GA – October 2, 2014
Worked for DSI as a CCHT, found it quite a good company to work for, far better than some f the former companies I worked for, its patient care as usual, you are paid promptly for the work you perform, standards are better, I have no complaint about DSI only that I would not mind working there again if only they would spread their wings to south Florida, Florida really NEED REAL COMPETITION in the Dialysis field , the two major companies here are taking advantage of the PCT'S for being OVERWORKED and UNDERPAID They really deserve to be competed against......
Staff RN/ Charge Nurse (Current Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – August 19, 2014
Start early morning dialysis treatments on chronic Kidney failure patients. Perform head to toe assessments, initiate treatment, and administer medications to patients during treatment. Monitor patients during treatment for any complications. I am also responsible responsible supervising ancillary staff and making sure the clinic runs as it should. I take care problems that may arise throughout the course of the day. The most enjoyable part of the day is being able to interact with the patients and caring for them.
