Dialysis Nurse (Current Employee) – Middletown, NY – December 14, 2015
Every job has more training to endure as time passes by. so the only thing i would have to say is that there are like 20 managers involved in 1 clinic. very difficult to address your concerns. And on call pay is terrible so is the salary. Entire hospital rn make more than dialysis rn and the 1199 union is not effective. But its the people you work with that make you hang in there.
time for family, good colleagues
minimal breaks, double charting, supervisors work even though you barely have time for patient care and documentation
director of operations (Former Employee) – Long Island, NY and Queens – December 6, 2015
Large dialysis company with many resources at your disposal. Provides clinical services, education and equipment. Dialysis equipment is provided not just to Fresenius but to its competitors world wide.
Clinical Personnel excessive turnover due to low salary
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Bend, OR – December 1, 2015
I learned so much here. and enjoyed the type of work dialysis entailed. It was a high energy job with little room for error. I found a love for this type of work and it motivated me to return to school and learn more
RN Team Leader (Current Employee) – Charleston, WV – November 19, 2015
Enjoy the opportunity to start my nursing career at Fresenius. The schedule is great. The hardest part of my job is cannulating. The most enjoyable part of my job is building a relationship with my clients.
Certified Clinical Hemodialysis Technician (Former Employee) – Pinellas Park, FL – November 19, 2015
How good your unit is all depends on the manager. I went through 3 in 3 1/2 years, that should tell you something. My nurses on the other hand were wonderful and hard working. My teammates for the most part worked well together, but there's always one or two that think certain things are beneath them. All in all it's always about the patients.
Verification Patient Account Representative (Current Employee) – Kennesaw, GA – November 17, 2015
While the company itself claims to be all about the patient and it's employees, they fail to deliver. Poor management and chasing as much profit as possible is bringing the decline in customer care and is killing the morale of employees. Policies and procedures change constantly. Management is very reactive, instead of attempting to be proactive in regards to known issues. The workload is steadily increasing, but staff ratios remain the same or lessen. Management shows favoritism, and severe lack of professionalism.
Job satisfaction in working with clients / co-workers
Medical Social Worker (Current Employee) – Rio Rancho, NM – November 17, 2015
Great opportunity to learn about Dialysis Medical Care from highly experienced interdisciplinary team members. Health benefits are limited due to high deductibles. One Social worker to a clinic of 90 patients with less than 32 hours authorized to work. Good time management and advocacy skills are necessary to manage to work load.
working with renal failure patients as a medical team
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Rockford, MI – November 16, 2015
We usually have three shifts- while tech is prepping patient to start hemodialysis- I assess fluid gain- signs and symptoms of fluid overload or electrolyte imbalances- trouble shoot central venous catheters if they have signs or symptoms of being infected. Calling in prescriptions and notifying physician if there are abnormal assessment findings.
get to leave for lunch. Low stress environment
Not challenging enough. Feel like i work on a human assembly line
RN (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – November 15, 2015
The patients were awesome and I made good money working here. The Techs work great with nurses to give the patients a great experience. Management is supportive of advancement and will assist in the process.
