I work I a hospital setting which outsourced my therapy department. Not my choice.
Occupational Therapist (Current Employee) – Louisiana – September 18, 2016
My original department is mostly intact, and I like that. Little kindred has done is for the benefit of the employees nor the patients. Little understanding of regulations. Asking therapists to get as close to the edge, without going over.... Expectations of productivity require "creative" ways of seeing patients... Not sure that the directives are best nor benificial for the patient, but to maximize their revenue. Benefits are below industry standard, expensive with very high deductibles and co-pays.
In addition to the original staff, the new people hired, non therapy staff, have had no qualifications, and are receiving no training. Ask amazingly dumb questions that exemplify their lack of medical/rebabilition knowledge.
There are no pros, but I have my job
Everything else. Kindred is focus on productivity, maximizing profits, not employees nor providing healthcare
