I work for a DaVita in Florida. 16 chair unit, 4/1 ratio, FA is great, charge nurse does not take patients, we have a PCT and LPN for each 8 chairs. So each day we have 1 RN, 2 LPNs, 2 PCTs and a reuse/PCT for 16 patients. PCTs are allowed to take care of cath patients. The FA and AA order all supplies. We have never been told to cut down on using supplies or do we ever run out. Nurses work hard as do the PCTs. The only person that runs the unit is the FA (non nurse). We do have techs that have been there for along time, they know the patients and are asked how they would do things by the charge nurse. The final say comes form the FA or the charge nurse. I have had no problems with DaVita. Pay is good and so are the benifits. I pay $52 each pay period for my benifits which includes medical, dental, vision, life insurance, short and long term disability. A job is what you make of it. The grass is not always greener on the other side.
