Former EmployeeWorked at Kindred Healthcare Operating, LLC in Louisville, KY.

What I like

I have great coworkers and we provided excellent Rehab Care to patients that were very challenging

They were ethical issues with Medicare reimbursements with kindred healthcare

If they could get back into the long-term care division to provide excellent nursing and rehab

EmployeeWorked in Marketing/product management at Kindred Healthcare Operating, LLC in Louisville, KY at the time of review.

What I like

Been there for 6 years. Corporate owned but overall a great company. Looks after their employees

What I dislike

Those performing well have to do busy work the same as those that aren’t, instead of letting those performing well skip it

Suggestions for improvement

More PTO. Don’t make us use PTO before we can use sick leave

EmployeeWorked in Marketing/product management at Kindred at Home in West Plains, MO at the time of review.

What I like

401k is offered as well as insurance and PTO. Allows independent work. Pays great for increased proven work

What I dislike

Even if I am performing well I have to do busy work like the employeees who aren’t performing well. I don’t feel I should have to do the extra work if I am doing well

Suggestions for improvement

Decrease amount we pay for insurance

EmployeeWorked at Kindred Healthcare in Louisville, KY at the time of review.

What I like

Pay is good. Benefits are adequate. Documentation software is pretty good. PTO is decent

What I dislike

Poor management at a local level. Too much middle management. Due to the company being for profit, decisions made reflect that is the priority and NOT the patients/families. Little to no support from management at the local office. Feels like no one cares about anything other than pleasing corporate. Don’t care about employees and their well being. If there were other jobs available elsewhere, most staff would leave this office

Suggestions for improvement

Better communication. Make local management accountable. Support your field staff more. We’re dying out here due to lack of appropriate staff.

EmployeeWorked at Kindred at Home in West Plains, MO at the time of review.

What I like

Branch office is great and administrator is supportive of staff. Co-workers are friendly and dedicated

What I dislike

Corporate appears primarily interested in profit, which leads to under staffing and staff to patient ratios that are overwhelming. There is also persistent concern for job security.

Suggestions for improvement

Less interference from corporate and increased guidance/training/support from corporate staff who actually have experience in patient care.
