Do not let your talents shine here
RN Case Manager current (Current Employee), Dayton, OhioJune 4, 2015
Pros: What is left of the office staff are good people. The STNAs are awesome but burnt out.
Cons: Very clickish, the management will NOT have your back if you are not a buddy. No evaluations, no raises for years, no help. Large turn over.
Do not expect to be acknowledged by the praise you get from your patients or the facility staff. Administration will find it threatening and you will be out the door. The Clinical Managers have no training in how to build a team or manage people. They do not have their BSNs and do not know how to lead. If something goes wrong you will be hung out to dry. This company is all about the money. The contracts they have the families sign are not held up. Don't even mention crisis care, it does not exist in the Dayton office. There are no evaluations, no raises and the PTO is a joke. The mileage reimbursement is down to 40 cents a mile when the government standards are 55 cents a mile. You can file for reimbursed in your taxes.
Do not expect to have management support you, that will not happen unless you are a buddy.
Run from this job, they expect you to work, do IDT notes, and take total care of your patients without any over time. Again this is about the money.
Extremely high turn over, for a good reason.

Work but unstable

Enjoyed the patients and staff but do the all the medical insurance changes not stable. One day working next day maybe not due to new insurance laws and affects patient care and staffing.

Great people caring for the patients, but administration cares about money
Infection Control (Former Employee), Kindred Hospital Tarrant Co. Fort Worth SouthwestJune 2, 2015
Pros: Awesome co-workers on the floors
Cons: Administration more concerned with profit than patient safety, compliance, or best practices.
Great group of people who care for the patients, really try to do the right thing for the patients, wonderful to work with; all of the nurses, techs etc are excellent and have their hearts in the right places. Unfortunately, administration consistently puts more value on number of patients in the beds than about the care of the patients themselves. Administration prioritizes ranking within the corporation above everything: patients, families, and employees. Be cautious if you are ethical and caring as the pressure from the administration can over rule patient safety.

Nice people to work with BUT
Certified Nurse Assistant (Former Employee), Albuquerque, NMMay 29, 2015
Pros: Friendly place to work, good benefits
Cons: over-worked, under-staffed
As a CNA i always had to work alone or short-staffed. 90 percent of the CNAs working are in nursing school and are babies when it comes to working their shifts. Making excuses for not coming in because they had a final or a test and management would let them call in all the time. Nice for them but sucks when youre the only one showing up for a shift, most nurses help, but many wont even care if you are alone as a CNA. Management is really laid-back but that is bad in my eyes because they are so lenient a lot of people get away with a bunch of stuff. Overall i liked working here, good benefits, nice people, friendly staff. they just over-work the good employees. Potential for over-time is great because so many people call in but it gets tiresome after a while.

no room for advancement and management wasn't very good
Environmental Services Technician (Former Employee), San Diego, CAMay 20, 2015
Kindred hospital San Diego is a horrible place to work for. The management does not care about it's employee's. for one year the snuffed us on raises. Hr is baised and really doesn't have the employee's interest at hand. this place is a hostile environment. If you read around these reviews you will see this is a reoccurring problem for all of Kindred.

Always room for improvement
RESPIRATORY THERAPIST (Current Employee), Hammond, INMay 20, 2015
Pros: Most times the staff gets along and communicates well
Cons: Too often short staffed and short on equipment/resources
As with any place of employment or anything in life actually, there is always room for improvement. There is often times not enough staff or resources to do the job that is needed/expected. However, there are those times when things go according to plan and you actually get to see the patient improve well enough to return home to family. That in and of itself is worth the frustrations every single time.

CNA (Former Employee), Tampa FLMay 10, 2015
Pros: Nice nursing staff
Cons: Horrible Management
Before I cam to kindred worked in a skilled and regular nursing facility. Kindred is not a hospital but a longtern acute care nursing home. There is no room for advancement here if you are trying to move up. The managament sis rude and does not care about your back when you have to take care of a 600 + patient. I stayed at this facility for too long met great people, but the end result for this facility is drying the pt out of their money and sweeping ALOT of things under the rug. DO NOT EXPECT A RAISE
