Just wanted to ask for everyone working in dialysis if your clinic staffing is based on productivity? My clinic lives and dies by how many hours each person gets based on him many treatments run, etc. I’m sure all places do this to an extent, but it seems extreme at times. Staff members get sent home earlier and earlier and the few left have to do a great deal of work to finish up the day. Many times taking off multiple patients at once not to mention the clean up and other end of the day tasks. It seems like it has ruined our clinic. Just wanted to see if anyone else has experienced this or not.

the 4 clinics that I have worked at have all done it.  There are exceptions, like for hoyer lifts, blind pts that need held, etc..and in south central Indiana, we are staggered start.  It's like reverse of sending staff home early...stinks if there's a major issue at beginning

How else can you run a factory if you don't measure productivity?

Unfortunately,  just about every (not all, but quite a few) factions of healthcare are being run on productivity numbers now. It's all about $$$
