Challenging place to work
Unit Clerk (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: room for advancement, able to learn new skills, caring for the sick
Cons: must have thick skin, no room for error, consistant interruptions
Dealing with individuals with end stage renal failure is difficult to handle. As an employee, you will spend 98% of the day being in close quarters with the patients. I learned how to collect and store specimen in the proper fashion, develop compassion for the sickly, and the importance my position plays in the overall health of the patient. Management could learn to speak to staff in a professional manner. Each physician has his/her perference of how work should be completed, therefore management should be more clear as to his/her expectations of staff. Hardest part of the job was actually seeing a person code in the unit. The most enjoyable part is seeing them come back for their next treatment or actually receiving a transplant.

Good work, good people, good company, terrrible hours
Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Oklahoma City, OKJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: great people, good pay, good benefits
Cons: terrible work hours, a few bad patients, dealing with nephrology doctors
A typical day at Fresenius begins at 0430 and consists of three shifts of patients ranging from 10 to 20 people. Plenty of help exists so no, one person feels overworked. It is a good company with good management, and most employees seem to have a good attitude, at least the clinic I am employed at. Dialysis always offers learning opportunities, and is very challenging, if you love a challenge, which I do. The most enjoyable portion of working in dialysis is the variety of people that an individual is able to care for, which can also be a huge challenge. The challenge is dealing with the variety of personalities from patients on a daily basis. Most are great, but there are always two or three in a clinic that can ruin your entire day. The least enjoyable, or hardest part of the job is waking up at 0330 in the morning to be at work at 0430. This is the reason I am looking at getting out of dialysis, and unless you are certain that you do not mind these hours, do not waste your time, it is miserable.

CCHT (Former Employee), Sikeston, MOJanuary 25, 2015
Education Department: doesn't keep existing staff up to date with new policies, they criticize and talk down to you, they single employees out and make them feel they're not doing the job.

Job is very cliquish, if you're not in the clique, they turn their backs on you, from management down.

High turnover, poor patient outcomes
Acute Dialysis Nurse (Former Employee), Saint Petersburg, FLJanuary 23, 2015
Pros: compensation/benefits
Cons: no breaks, long hours, no support or adequate training, poor morale among staff
Poor management who have no respect for their employees or the ability to lead a team. Policy and procedures were ignored and patient outcomes are suffering.

Lack of strong rapport and limited support with the nephrologists provides barriers for dialysis nurses to provide patient care.

Nurses were being required to work long shifts greater than 18 hours multiple days in a row (4-5 in total).

Higher management aware of these problems and there has been no improvement over the last 5 years, turnover is frequent and never ending.

Collection Specialist (Former Employee), Westchester, ILJanuary 22, 2015
Pros: well compensated
Cons: dealing with management
Work was extremely satisfying - the office dynamics left a lot to be desired. The management was out of step with employees who were preforming the work. This may have been just this offices problem or maybe a corporate problem. This issue I believe led to the closing of this office.

Excellent place to work
Hemodialysis Registered Nurse/Charge Nurse (Current Employee), South Plainfield, NJJanuary 21, 2015
Pros: flexibility
Cons: location
Professional staff and great leadership. Flexibility is maximized for staff. Patient satisfaction in primary goal; overall quality exceeds norms. Great staff to work with.
A typical work day begins between 4am and 5am and usually wraps up by 7pm. Some days staff can leave by 2pm. Recently transportation issues and decrease patient census have decreased staffing needs so security in hours and position may be questionable. The most enjoyable part of the day is working with the patients and staff because of the caring and loving environment.

Certified Dialysis Technician (Current Employee), Detroit, MIJanuary 20, 2015
Pros: quality care

My day consists of interacting with patients and staff. Making sure that each patients have the best quality care.

I then set up machines for three consecutive shifts and ending the day with shutting down the machines and cleaning properly.
