LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) (Former Employee) – Peoria, AZ – April 24, 2016
Normally a team approach 1 RN, 1 LPN, 1 CNA with 10-12 patients that are very high acuity. Many come from acute care hospital ICUs. Many times 1 RN and 1 LPN work without the CNA, which makes it rough. Takes the care away from the patient. No communication with upper management down to supervisor. Learned to be flexible and not to rely on anyone.
High acuity, and patient to nurse ratios, too many regestry working lacks core staff.
Working at Kindred Rose Manor in Durham, NC has been a great experience with working with a diverse team. The team works together to ensure residents and staff are well taking care of. Hardest part of my job is dealing with residents with high demands and non-adherence to diet restrictions. The most enjoyable part of my job is creating dietary and staffing events which promotes a fun atmosphere. I have learned a lot from my employees and residents as a RD at Kindred Rose Manor that I can take anywhere!
Good facility to learn and provide quality care to patients.
LPN (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – January 4, 2016
Working here has been rewarding in learning new skills and providing quality care to patients and families. The facility is very clean and I was provided with adequate supplies. Team nursing is implemented which includes 1 RN, 1 LPN, 1 CNA for max of 10 patients per team.
Director of Nursing Services (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – December 26, 2015
Want you to work for hours on end and blame it on a "salaried position". Compensation for salaried employee sounds fair until you work 80 hours a week for your salary. Corporate administration does NOTHING to help with poor culture in buildings although they are well aware of problems. Training is non-existent. Employees are not treated the same. Would never recommend this company you'd like to keep your license. Worked in fear of my job everyday.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – December 18, 2015
A typical day would consist of having 8-16 patients some having to be turned every two hours. Checking their vitals daily, bathing, and grooming. Some patients are continent of bowel and bladder, some require assistance walking to the bathroom. There was very little team work among my co-workers and management would do very little to resolve the staff from working short or making an individual accountable for not carrying their own weight. The hardest part of my job would be to loose a patient due to their illness overcoming them. The most enjoyable part of my job would be bring peace of mind to my patients and their family members. I learned that all patients want to be treated with respect, and dignity by all staff members..
At the end of the day I had self satisfaction with a job well done
Clinical Nursing Supervisor (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – December 14, 2015

CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – December 9, 2015
I worked 3 days a week of 12 hour shifts. it is a very fast paced place to work and a lot of hands on. doctors can be moody at times but also very caring and friendly. a lot of patents so you didn't get a lot of help from co workers. sometimes getting days off was hard they always needed help on the floor.
Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – December 5, 2015
Kindred Hospital was the worst experience of my career. I worked on the third floor and the DON was awful. The patients are too sick to be there and should be in an actual hospital. The respiratory staff had some that were there for way too long and didn't care about the patients anymore. I felt like my license was constantly on the line every day that I accepted an assignment.
Pay is good
Terrible working environment, DON and too many chiefs.
Fast paced environment, self motivated sales and customer service
Clinical Liaison (Current Employee) – Northwest – December 3, 2015
Facilitate referrals through customer contacts and professional presentation of facility compentencies. Manage relationship with all customers and provide excellent service and management. A terrific job, with a lot of customer contact and professional pride in management of customer expectations. My partner in this role provided all support and coordination of our services - we covered each other on a regular basis and shared our bonus equally. The most difficult part of this job has been the management, the most enjoyable has been the customers.
Staff Development Coordinator (Current Employee) – Newark, OH – November 30, 2015
I have been there 6 years with no plans to leave. Love the residents and my co-workers. Plenty of opportunity to grow within the company since they are located in 42 states and are the largest provider of home health services.
Unit Secretary (Current Employee) – Glendora, CA – November 23, 2015
Every day I come into work at the nursing station with a check list full of my daily assignments. I constantly answer phones and assist family members or patients. Doctors order labs, x-rays, and ultrasounds; I call them in order it. I gather vital signs and prepare them for the doctors. I also have daily audits and data entry for each patient. Most enjoyable part of my job is to work as a team with the nurses and being a part of something important. I have gained lots of experience here and still learning so much.
