I'm like you. I've worked for RCG for 2 yrs and really liked the personal aspect of the company. When I joined RCG, it was impressive how big the comany was but how I felt management was not distant, very approachable.
Now, FMC is the biggest dialysis company. We just got Braun machines and love them (after Cobe3's they are fantastic!) and after 2 yrs in dialysis, I feel like I really know my job. Now everything is upside down. New machines, new computer systems, new equipment, new uniform policy (what do I do with that closet full of scrubs
??). It is a very scary prospect.
I am awaiting more info on this thread. I know, as a dialysis nurse, that my job is fairly secure here, and our unit is a profitable one. Anyone higher up is shaking. And they may figure that our market is a small one (we have eight chairs/2 shifts/6 days a week but are constrained due to space) and could get rid of us. I guess I can always try something new.
Anyway, I'll follow this thread.
