Suggestions for improvement

  • Family structure. Communication. Fair pay. Fair compensation for wear and tear on vehicles driven 100s of miles everyday. More benefits/bonuses/raises. Stop penalizing your employees because the company is over budget. Figure out why there is a high turnover, then that would keep employees from working extra, getting paid extra and therefore lower spending

What I like about the company

Being able to service those with health care needs

What I dislike about the company

Pay and reimbursement for mileage. Non communication

What I like about the company

I have been an employee for several years and in my experience, it is the optimal work environment. The hours are good and the daily challenges keep me on my toes. The people I work with are absolutely wonderful and supportive. I grow each day in my career. I learn something new every day. I learn from the people around me. I learn from the people in the field. I learn from my patients and from my employer. Everyone is supportive and helpful in meeting the goals of the patients. And that goal is to keep people in their homes and out of the hospital. To be able to live in their own environment and be as independent as possible. My employer strives to enrich the lives of their employees and for the the community. We are a part of many charitable organizations and partner with hospitals and doctor's offices to keep patients from going to the hospital over and over again. We have programs that stress the importance of managing their own health and making lifestyle changes that are meant to enrich and lengthen their lives as well as making their lives as full of quality as possible. We have nearly one thousand patients from a variety of pay sources. We take referrals from doctor's offices, rehabilitation facilities, hospitals, wound centers, outpatient facilities and so on. We are dedicated to making a difference in our community and have developed a very Noble reputation. I am a proud member of the Gentiva family and plan to stay there as long as possible. The community is a better place due to our presence and records indicate that we have solidly reduced rehospitalization for many of our patients with our specialty programs such as safe strives that focuses on reducing falls in those patients who at high risk for falling, our Cardiopulmonary program, which concentrates on people with diagnoses such as congestive heart failure, pnuemonia, coronary artery disease, hypertension, aortic stenosis, cerebral vascular disease. We help patients manage and adhere to their meds.
