Company Culture

Ongoing turnover. Minimal ability of this company to retain new and seasoned employees. I have only chosen to stay with this company for the schedule flexibility. If you have never worked in home health, do not sign the noncompete! You are NOT required to and when you realize how crappy this company is you need the freedom to move on without the 18m block once you stop working for them.

Support from management

Minimal. Recent changes to management with someone who has never managed before. She's extremely overwhelmed with her role. For such a large company you would think there would be an ADON but no, only a DON.

Teamwork

Surprisingly the best part of working for this company. Mostly from the non admin staff. Admin staff are severely overworked and frustrations leak out during interactions with lower level staff, making you feel incompetent and lacking just because you expressed a concern, which directly affects patient care.

Freedom to work independently

As a field nurse, absolutely! As long as you get your job done on the day and time it needs to be done your free to do as you please.

Internal Communication

Lacking sufficient communications prior to scheduled visits, as a field nurse.

Career Development

Never been offered a specialty class to educate on new wound care techniques or anything of the sort. In fact they do not encourage continueing your education as they do not compensated your more for additional credicials such as WOCN.
No free CEU's, had to use PTO to take classes at a local hospital, which I paid for.
Educator on staff is less than friendly and not approachable.

Overall compensation for your work

This company pays the lowest in this area. Do PRN at a couple company's, then you'll see. Huge differences $30-80 a visit.

Office / Work Environment

New office is nice.
Your working in patients homes some are clean some aren't.

Work-Life Balance

Is there such a thing? Expect phone calls on your days off regarding items you already documented on and scheduling needing you to pick up visits.

Company Image

Once was good, now is less than good in our patients eyes. Too many patients, not enough staff to provide care.

Job Security

Keep hearing people are being fired every few weeks. Not sure why, I knew them and they seemed like decent clinicians.
Once again, over worked and under paid makes people a little pissy and resistant to pick up more work on top of their current schedule.

Challenging Work

Every day is different.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Spread the love? The DON has too much responsibility. Needs an ADON to help manage the 1000+ patients and 200+ employees.

What I like about the company

Weekly paychecks.

What I dislike about the company
