Busy dialylsis Clinic
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee), Hammond, INJuly 16, 2014
Pros: getting to know the patients because you see them three times a week.
Cons: short breaks, and long hours.
I would arrive each day, and set up the dialysis machines, make sure all of the patients supplies were ready. As the patients would come in, I would document their vitals: weight, standing and sitting blood pressures, temperature, any symptoms they were having. After the dialysis machine was primed and ready I would either clean the patients sight for – more... cannulation, or clean their catheter to ready them for treatment. Some of the coworker would work as a team and help out in the fast paced environment. The hardest part of the job was seeing the patients come in not feeling well, or get sick during their treatment. The best part of the job was helping people to live a better and much healthier life! – less

No advancement for minorities.
Can't say (Current Employee), Tampa bayJuly 3, 2014
Pros: plenty nursing jobs because nurses don't stay.
Cons: favoritism, nepotism....no employee recognition
You look around, and there is not one black person above the lousy manager position. The clinical manager position is the highest expectation one can have as a minority. Jobs are not posted, they are offered in back deals to their buddies, and when the jobs are finally posted, it is because someone already got it. The posting was just a formality. Advancement – more... is not based on merit, but on who you know.....There are plenty positions for PCTs and RNs, but don't aspire to anything more than the abysmal manager position, no other way of advancing if you are not white. All upper management is Lilly white. And by the way, you will get paid less as a minority, if you don't stand for yourself. If you complain and express any concerns, you are than blacklisted. It is disheartening to see people you have trained, or with less experience get promoted instead of you. – less

A competitive growth market
Home Therapies Program Manager (Current Employee), Montgomery, AlabamaJuly 3, 2014
Fresenius is an excellent company to work for and one that I would seek out for if I were to need dialysis. However, there is a fragmented drill down of management from the corporate level and individual divisions and areas are run independently. As a result, it is difficult to successfully transfer to a new area internally, particularly under a management – more... team that is very politically and upwardly mobile minded and not focused as much on patient needs. – less

Some good some bad
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee), Terre Haute, INJune 30, 2014
Pros: good work enviroment
Cons: frightening
Good working conditions, always more to learn, and very active job. Direct management was always excellent, but some of the upper management could be slightly out of touch. My biggest problem was that the company pushed you to work so quickly (to keep profits rising) that I was continually nervous that someone was going to die. Dialysis is not something – more... that should be rushed and the Techs and Nurses should not be required to push the limits like they are. If they would slow down the pace and focus on safety it would be an excellent place to work. – less

Close knit company
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee), Saint Louis, MOJune 28, 2014
Pros: work three days a week...
Cons: clinic managers will not have your back
I worked here for 6 months. My training was given by a racist person who talked down to me. The so called season rep talked back to patients and got away with that too. I'm sure other clinics do not have these problems. The pay that I was getting was not worth the salary at all. The manager agreed, but did nothing about it. Patients are wonderful and – more... I pray that they are get someone with true patient care experience. – less

Great place to work because it was very family-oriented.
Dialysis Technician (Former Employee), Pittsburg, CAJune 27, 2014
Pros: we celebrated a lot with each other with potlucks and such, pay and benefits were good, my schedule was the best in the world for me, all the employees got along great and was a real team atomosphere, patients were ok as well with no real drama like some places i have worked in the past.
Cons: manager practically invisible and inaccessible all the time, everyday. not enough protective gear for blood spills and bodily fluids during my time there.
I was a dialysis technician for a chronic unit serving kidney disease patients. I took their vital signs and weight to determine how much filtering of their blood would be needed to assist in their quality of life. This was not a bad place to work, and what I loved about it the most was the schedule. I worked 3-4 times a week on 12 hour days. I could – more... go to other units for overtime if they needed help on my off days if I wanted, or I could just relax and vacation with my children on my off days, which I sometimes did. Work-life balance was most excellent, as the place was definitely family oriented and I enjoyed that the most about this job. Also, the pay was good and so were the benefits. What I enjoyed least about this place of employment was the lack of protective gear that was provided to us at that time. It could be different now, but at that time, we used a plastic APRON to shield us from blood splashes and bodily fluids...just not enough for me at that time, and I absolutely hated that. Also, the manager at that time was completely inaccessible to us, and stayed in her office and never really came out to check on us or to see even if the nurses needed any help for any reason. – less
