DaVita Inc. Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Dialysis Registered Nurse (RN)?

Dialysis Registered Nurse (RN) in Houston:
"Busy, focused, case management skills."
Pros: People, relationships, small unit.
Cons: Stress, all consuming, wk follows u hm.

Dialysis Registered Nurse (RN) in Albuquerque:
"Critical care."
Be a team player.

Dialysis Registered Nurse (RN) in Louisville:
"Demanding."
Pros: Excellent job security, as new RNs quickly realize it's no fun to be mandated w/o incentive pay, or to be on call at midnight after you've already worked an 18 hour day. I've worked several 23 hour days but RNs don't have unions or labor laws to protect them. Little resources to accomplish demanding tasks- mechanics aren't allowed to get overtime so I keep a list of dialysis machines to avoid (as there are always mechanical issues). RNs must have their treatment started within one hour of clock-in time despite any delays. We are forced to carry a Galaxy 3 handheld to chart on but the new software is always freezing up. Little if any access to the local hospitals' pyxis or computers so that I can retrieve labs & orders. 5 weeks paid vacation but your vacation request will always be denied. Then you vacation time rolls over into "extended sick leave" in which you must be under a doctor's care & go on FMLA to receive your own money.
Cons: High turnover of dialysis nurses. Unjust wages for female RNs, as a new male RN will always make more money. Unjust raises if you can't play the office game. Travel up to two hours to outlying hospitals because the new manager doesn't understand the logistics of efficiency. Unrealistic expectations from managers-- after you've been working for 20 hours the day before, there will be a new, unexpected mandatory meeting on your one day off. You only get two days off in a row every other week. Work schedule is 4 days a week with one call day and one mandate day. Some days (like Monday) you work 20 hours and some days you work 7 hours.

Dialysis Registered Nurse (RN) in Charleston:
"Team leader."
Pros: Ability to earn 40 hours in 3 days a week.
Cons: Pay.

Dialysis Registered Nurse (RN) in Phoenix:
"AM I getting the correct salary."
Hang in there.

Dialysis Registered Nurse (RN) in Walla Walla:
"I Love The In Patient Services."
Pros: The different degree in patients I care for.
Cons: They took away our profit sharing and no bonuses given. Stress level.

Dialysis Registered Nurse (RN) in Dothan:
"A Great Company In Print, Little Recourse For Employees."
Pros: My position is unconventional in that it is Acute Care, NOT a clinic setting. I enjoy finally having a day job (primarily) and getting to work closely with ICU patients again when doing mobile treatments. I also like not being "trapped" in the same area for the entire shift most days.
Cons: My supervisor is a great micro-manager, but horrible leader. The company doesn't recognize problems in local areas until a mass-exodus of employees, or other another disaster. The employee has no voice, or ability to make change, or improve upon the way things have been done for eons, leaving anyone with higher standards very unsatisfied. This company doesn't value experience, they want trained monkeys.
