Questionable practices between nurse practitioner and FA who both required me to perform work that was outside my licences/scope of practice. I did not want to be held responsible for possibly making a mistake for something that was not under my job description. Also unrealistic expectations to split my time between two heavily populated facilities within a 40 hour work week. The pay was not worth the stress or losing my license over their decisions.

Management turnover was awful! Unfair distribution of working hours between RNs. Patient care was evidently not a priority to management. No confidentiality within administration as far as salary amounts, etc.

Wrong people in management- if you don't fit in, then none of them like you. Worked my backside off, couldn't make the "metrics" (set very high) and instead of helping you find a different position, they just continue to write you up for not meeting their metrics. The cash application supervisors are best friends and very condisending. Manager listens and follows supervisor's opinion rather than working with staff.

I worked at a new clinic (DeNovo)where it was just me and my FA who also acted as the floor nurse. As a former Fresenius employee I was baffled that two people (me and my FA) would be alone in a clinic with 16 patients at a time. We had no AA so I basically was the tech and AA. Which meant I had to work 15 hour days to try to keep up with everything. I would also get called in on my off days to do stupid stuff like paper work. There was no help. Upper management didn't care that our clinic was under staffed because they saved money.

Company greed combined with very poor local and regional management. Left after 17 years and have seen first-hand the decline in the way this company cares for its teammates. Sad and sickened by the treatment I've observed.

Waking up at 3:45. And the 16-20 hour days are very common. No work life balance.

Incompetent and back stabbing management. Facility chronically understaffed with unrealistic expectations. Grueling 14 hour work days!

Patients cussed and threatened me but management would not do anything about it. I asked to go to another clinic I was told no. Then when I quit they kept my PTO at over $300.
Stay away they pretend they are family but would walk away if you were on fire.
