I am a Davita patient at the Kayenta, Arizona location. Every time I got to dialysis, my blood is constantly running down my arm. The workers do not help me and just send me out the door. There are a lot of people who leave the facility with blood all over their...

My job with Davita Briacrest was suddenly terminated on August 20th. I was informed my services were no longer required because of certain patient complaints. I had tried to find out what the complaints were, but was told patients are entitled to their confidentiality....

I like to see more in preventable medicine

My potassium is kind of high on the borderline , they don't do anything before the weekend , they should do something on Friday before Monday because the potassium going to be way high by Monday , should do something about bringing it down the potassium before the weekend no-brainer

Disrespect and prejudice towards minorities

The New Haven Clinic has to be one of the most unprofessional clinics in the history of Healthcare, some of the nurses are very disrespectful to minorities and openly prejudice. I've witnessed multiple incidents where people in authority have screamed at the technicians right in front of the patients and even use profanity. Almost every new trainee has quit and or planning on quitting due to the lack of respect and discrimination.

To share experience

From what I've seen, all they care about is bossing their patients around. We went through their pd home dialysis program and now they're harassing us every day. Besides that, they make patients sign contracts which essentially say you'll do everything they tell you to, which violates your rights as a patient.

User's recommendation: Avoid if you can they're bullies.

Poor patient care

Under staffed, poor training of staff, can not keep techs/nurses. Constant "fill ins" from other locations. Never any consistency in procedures. Nurses are severely overworked with too many patients to manage. DaVita has little to do with dialysis patient care and everything to do with making money for top management. Patient amenities (chairs, TV's etc) are old, worn and don't work. If one complains about these items you are told "it's not in the budget" DaVita is all about making lots of money for corporate management and nothing at all to do with patient care

User's recommendation: Check your options, there are other companies.

Can’t Breathe

Time and time again I have told. A staff member she cannot wear strong perfume in a medical center as also Northwell health who is Davita partner also has said. The FA has instructed Corell that she cannot wear this perfume because it causes patients to go into a Asmatic shock and congestive heart failure. But this technician does not care . She refuses to adhere to policy and procedures. Next is a lawyer to drop a lawsuit perhaps thats the only way to get this nonsense to stop maybe a 10 Million dollar l

User's recommendation: File lawsuits.

Dr. says "If you take a nap or rest, use your CPAP."

The stupidity of people with no understanding of not being able to breath. I can prove my mask is safe.

Proper medical treatment! Not just one small part.

I am a patient at a DaVita treatment center. I used a CPAP at home, prescribed and needed to breath when I sleep. I tried to explain how the mask and machine works to no avail.

Not even a Doctor can convince them the CPAP is safe. So, if I can't breath and don't wake up on my own, it is fine to die on their watch, as long as I don't spread Covid. I can prove with GRAPE JUICE that no fluid will come out, if worn properly. NO. NO machine unless provided by DaVita. No CPAP provided. I am denied medical treatment because it isn't provided by DaVita. They will clean your blood but don't care of you cant breath. People are safer around me with my cpap on because cough or sneeze droplets can get awaydont have sleep apnea!

User's recommendation: Don't have sleep apnea! Breathing is optional.

Complaint

Original review updated by user Apr 20, 2021
Patients Beware! Da Vita in Dunsmore, PA is extremely unprofessional. There is one nurse in particular that blatantly flirts with a patient, constantly giving him special attention and hanging around him talking all of the time. This nurse is also extremely boisterous which consequently encourages the other nurses to behave in the same manner. There doesn't seem to be a supervising nurse that maintains a professional environment.

User's recommendation: Go somewhere else!

Denied access to dialysis due to staff prioritizing corporate profit above my individual medical need. Refusal to provide appropriate accommodations to enable me to access hemodialysis.

Treated with arrogance and utter disrespect. Denied appropriate accommodation for a documented disability, making it impossible for me to access hemodialysis. I require an afternoon dialysis appointment. DaVita/Table Rock/Boise, Idaho refused to allow me to maintain my dialysis schedule, insisting that I come at a time that is not possible for me, due to a medically documented, lifelong severe sleep disorder.

User's recommendation: Unfortunately, dialysis services in the United States are totally monopolized by two companies. Both are primarily focused upon corporate profits, and both have abysmal records for patient service. I do not know what to recommend.

that's very sad but they must maintain a schedule...usually afternoon appointments are available...its usually the early morning appointments that are hard to get...by you not being able to arrive at the available treatment times is not denying you care...some times changes have to be made for clinical or staffing reasons. We have to understand as patients, we aren't the only one receiving care and some times they have to make changes to fit a new patient into the schedule
