a typical day at work is one filled with passion for your patients and a family oriented atmosphere most times. hardest part of the job is maintaining hours. most enjoyable part is the smiles on the faces of the patients.
CCHT (Current Employee) – Pine Bluff, AR – January 4, 2018
Very productive and great atmosphere. I enjoy the patients. Job is very physically demanding. The only thing I don't like is the hours going in at 4:45am and never have a set time of getting off sometime 14 & 15 hrs a day.
If you want to work more than 60 hours a week with stressful environment including to deal with your boss and patients attitude this is the place to be. Very bad management, you dont get paid enough, work long, i mean super long hours, from 4am till 8 till 10 pm or midnight. Depends on your staffing which is always short! You will be required to work almost every day and if you call in, they need an appropriate reason why, like your personal life. They wont believe you and will not respect your privacy. Will intervene with your available hours. The management does not appreciate your hard work and effort to please your patient and instead write you up for the littlest things. Will not acknowledge your suggestion and complaints. Your boss or facility administrator that does not even care to ask how the floor has been going, but will stay in their office the whole day and will not even help in case of shortages. Will audit you to death and lecture you with all the errors that you made and will not commend you for your improvement. Very stingy with pay raise and will always state your mistakes during evaluation more than your improvements. So you end up getting the lowest annual pay raise.
So if you want to be burnt out in a span of 2 months after your 6-8 weeks training as pct. then you should try!

Must have thick skin. Do only your job and do not do extra work or become an over achiever. Low pay increase every year through attendance and doing your job. Quality of performance doesn't matter. Be fast and do your job right and it'll become easy. I truly work half of the time and the other half I bs or sleep. Tip if your supervisors try to give you extra work because your fast and great at your job you have no choice but to slow your pace while working to prevent from getting extra responsibilities.
* I do have a great team. I've worked at other clinics where favoritism and gossip do play a big role so you just have to be lucky with who you work with.
It's a job.
Clinics make 80k-100k per patient, long hours and underpayed, should be on the show american greed.
Overworked and underpaid employees...worthlessness management!
CCHT (Former Employee) – Texas – December 9, 2017
Overworked and underpaid employees, worthless management that could care less about their employers and patients and only about meeting quota so they’ll receive their “bonus” come end of the year. Horrible turn over rate with employees, not to mention anyone off the street can get a job and keep it there...even if they’re doing patients more harm than good..(certain nurses). That’s because they can’t keep staff members and your management is too lazy to come a help ceratin clinic themselves. I could go on for days about a certaian clinic, but bottom of the line, do your research before working with the company, it’s not necessary the company it’s the management at each facility.
Insurance Billing Supervisor (Former Employee) – Plano, TX – November 28, 2017
Great pay...room for advancing if you are in the in crowd...awful culture and very very leadership. Executive level leadership made a point to harass and bully supervisors and managers...poor culture where a toxicity is welcomed.
Claims Reimbursement Representative (Former Employee) – Long Beach, CA – November 16, 2017
Young and inexperienced managers that led out of fear for their own jobs. Lots of favoritism shown. Corporate office based in Plano, TX didn't care about our office in Long Beach unless we didn't meet goal and then they piped up. Long Beach office was in desperate need of an HR person.
Compared to the other dialysis facilities in my area, this one is the worst and least organized. The pay was pretty bad even aa a seasoned nurse with years of dialysis experience. The benefits are expensive and not very good.
I will say, their home office is in Texas and the people from corporate who came up were great. Very knowledgeable. I imagine working at a facility closer to their home base might be better. Lower management are bad. They hire nurse managers with no dialysis experience and expect them to rely on the nursing staff to help with managements duties.
The doctors in the area that send their patients there are great, but that doesn't help run the facility.
Overall I say there are better options in the area if you want a job in hemodialysis.
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Paragould, AR – April 18, 2017
This clinic exactly right here s terrible; no teamwork , management is terrible and everyone gossips. So if you are an amazing employee DONT work here. You only get promoted if you lie they know nothing about their policies and procedures and if they dont like you they will fire you. Do nottttttt work here the rn for pd is a straight wench and you will hate your life by the time your on your own!!!
Bad bad morality, no teamwork, poor management, terrible hours
For the little time I was there I really enjoyed my work and work place. The management is great and they always have a good attitude. The employees are patient if you have questions and everyone is pleasant to speak to.
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.
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.
