Dialysis Nurse (Current Employee) – Jackson, MI – January 19, 2017
Dialysis is a difficult specialty area, but with proper management it can be done very well. A typical day for a staff RN at U.S. Renal is performing the nursing duties and performing all aspects of client care within a pod of 4 client chairs. This includes, assessing the client, setting the T machine with the ordered prescription, cannulating the client access, Monitoring and assessing clients during treatment, administering medications, charting on each client, performing assessment, med administration and charting on PCT run pods, rounding with Physicians, placing orders, monitoring client accesses and notifying vascular surgeons as needed, discontinuing client treatments, assessing condition and charting for discharge. This clinic presently runs 2 shifts.
I fell into dialysis after becoming a phlebotomist and fell in love with learning how very important kidney health is.
pct in training (Former Employee) – Delhi, CA – January 3, 2017
A typical day was an early start between 4 am to 530am. I learned the principles/rules of the dialysis process,proceddures,documentation,water treatment,infection control,and patient care the most valueble.
GREAT PAY, FLEXIABLE WORK DAYS LETS YOU SPEND TIME W AN AGING PARENT OR TIME WITH FRIENDS
ALOT OF INFORMATION TO PROCESS AT ONCE IF YOU ARE NEW TO MEDICAL FIELD BUT DONT GET DISCOURAGED
U.S. Renal care gives me the opportunity to expand my knowledge in the medical field. The patients always show appreciation which pushes me to do my very best at what I do. The job can be heavy at times but at the end its all worth it. Whats important to me are the patients and their health.
CCHT (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – January 26, 2017
Lots of favoritism ... Clinical coordinator is a manipulator who will throw you under the bus at first opportunity if you buck her nonsense. Poorly managed and Charge nurses are harassment driven. Techs treated horribly.
Clinical Research Coordinator (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – October 17, 2016
US Renal Care is a great place I have enjoyed working here and would love to stay, my PI is a wonderful teacher, however the studies that we currently have are coming to an end and upper management has decided to close the Research Department.

Reconciliation Specialist (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – June 24, 2016
Run....if you are a person thst does not kiss but stay away. Favortisim is alive and obvious. If you say something about the pets, they will make your life miserable. Posting dept and supervisor and manager are the worst. Very racist. Fake all the way around. All of mgmnt stinks and HR dept is no help. They turn it around and you become the problem.
PCT/CNA (Former Employee) – Jackson, MI – July 11, 2016
This place is a horrible place. It's poorly managed nobody wants to stay. The nurses think the PCT's are slaves. There is no help. I hated working here I've never worked in a dialysis clinic where management didn't take care or care for their staff. Not recommend
CCHT Trainer (Former Employee) – Texas – May 7, 2016
Loved the patients and what I did. Other than that this is a terrible place to work for. Employees call the shots, there is favoritism,no set schedules, managers will promise raises and not give them. Our FA knew employees would be leaving and waited until they left to start looking for new employees. PCT's knew they need to be certified and never did get their certification completed on time.
Enjoyed working only 3 days a week.
Terrible management, no team work, very little pay
Social Worker (Current Employee) – Laredo, TX – October 15, 2015
Calls, assisting patients, provide supportive counseling and referrals. I enjoy talking to the patients and providing needed assistance and supportive counseling. There are multiple responsibilities for social workers, besides referrals and supportive counseling. I also assist with transportation, and educate patients on treatment options and advance directives. I assist patients with applications and insurance needs. I assist with transient services for those going out of town and for those visiting our clinic. I have learned that life is short and each day is precious.
Other (Former Employee) – Adel, GA – March 12, 2016
This place is awful. I was so impressed with the FA she presented herself as a great Christian BUT soon as I signed on to join she took off her sheep clothing. They only trained me for few days because I already had experience. I explained this is totally different from what I was accustom to but did not help. I made numerous errors. I left chambers open had a mess of blood everywhere. The FA would find fault in everything I did but again training only a few days. She let her senior Pct run the clinic they bring all 4 of your patients back at the same time which causes you to feel rushed and then that messes up your time with getting the next shift patients on at there right time. It was just an awful experience. FA sleeps in her office. Everyone talks on their phone in clinic area. FA has favorites. If you're not kissing up she treats you like bleep. Cameras need to be placed in the Adel clinic and the FA office that's the only way they will get in order. They use each other pass codes. It's ridiculous. Pct do the catheter patients just out of order....
benefits ok pay ok
awful FA she takes naps pretending she is typing at computer in office. she be knocked out.

intake representative (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – March 13, 2015
Worked for the CBO in plano, loved the first department I was in (reconciliation ). My manager and supervisor were absolutely awesome. Transferred to spread my wings. Management changed, department went absolutely down hill! You give your all, all your energy, and your life takes a back seat to your job. Very political, became a sad, toxic, depressing place to be. Sorry do not have anything positive to say about the company anymore. HR has the manager's best interest in mind. Taking issues to HR will not help you. If you want a life, happiness, and your health this isn't the place for you. :)
UNIT SECRETARY (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – May 22, 2013
A typical day at work is always rewarding because we are not only very helpful to our patients but wer are lengthening patients lives. I have gained more experience beyond my reputal background in medical records. I have gained experience in the laboratory as well as education about end stage renal care. Management is truely about patient care and meeting the patient's needs. The hardest part of my job is seeing the patient's in pain and/or dealing with death. But it so rewarding to work here because we are a part of each patient's lifeline.
Worked here for 4 yrs, was asked to leave due to personal differences in patient care policies. It was an unsafe work atmosphere, long hours, you gave your life to the company and helped at every chance, and company was ungrateful for your help and efforts you gave to them.
No HR support, you had to call to the HR dept and got voice-mail with no return call Saw at least 7 FA come and go through one clinic, and huge turnaround with employees.
Demeaning, untruthful, unfair management that promotes a non Democratic culture and rules by Bullying employees and showing obvious favoritism to others. Very unhealthy work environment due to hours and management.
