    Toured a Kindred facility just outside the Milwaukee area. Did not have a good feel to it. Pay was decent, but the workload seemed excessive. Just didn't strike me as a happy place.

    My impression--this particular hospital was a blend of acute care and LTC. Seriously ill patients with long-term needs, many with no foreseeable discharge date.

    The hospital I visited offered only twelve-hour shifts. With the heavy patient load, I knew this was NOT the place for me.

    Bad rep in California. They are a Long Tern Acute Care facility so they can get around our mandated ratios, which means each nurse gets lots of patients....

    no experience with Kindred from a nursing perspective, but my grandmother was a patient there for a while in FL.

    not a good situation at all - dirty, bad ventilation system (place just reeked of mildew), waaaaay understaffed, o2 was broken, bedside electrical outlets didn't work. my gram was inconinent of urine and stool but they couldn't get an order for a foley nor did they have the staff to change her regularly, so she'd sit in it for hours at a time. scary stuff really... she was there for only a weekend, and then went to hospice thank god!

    Interviewed with them in Houston a yr ago. My impression was that they're only able to attract foreign RN's who often don't complain about the bad working conditions and poor pt care. Ditto janony"s post about understaffing.

    As I said before, my gioal is to get all the experience and CEUs I can get. I do not look at this is permanent. I am looking at all I can get from ICU, ACLE, 6 weeks of orientation to make me more marketable.

    Your responses were certainly no surprise after working a 12-hour shifit for an agency.

    Cheers, guys!! Thank your for all your replies.!!!\\\NURSE ARE COOL1111.
