The supervisors only communicate when something is wrong no compliments or fairness or trust.
Support from management
Leadership had no infusion experience and to benefit administration, policies were changed.
Most of the colleagues work well. But the leadership did not for they had no idea what it's like to work in the field. Only in the office portion of it.
Freedom to work independently
The workload was NOT fairly distributed. There were not enough nurses and we would get horrendous assignments having to drive all over the valley and walking into patients homes after midnight sometimes. The patients would be upset that their medicine is late and nurses would be upset that they would have to work 18-20 hour days with no breaks.
Meetings were spur of the moment and they piled so many patients on us it was hard to even attend meetings.
Overall compensation for your work
Ours is one of the lowest paying infusion companies. They didn't pay us raises then we found out they were hiring new people at a higher rate! We brought to the attention of HR they finally gave us what they were hiring the newbies at. So basically us old timers got the same amount as someone new off the street with no experience. Only because we brought it to their attention.
Office / Work Environment
The computer IT system was down a lot! It was very difficult to get info about patients when this happened. You would walk into a patient home blindly and that is NOT what you want to have cause that makes room for err.
Unsure as I was a field nurse
they were always pushing us to pick up extra and even forced us to work extra work shifts cause of the lack of nurses. A few nurses had medical issues and had to call in sick. They notified HR on this. You feel as though you cannot call in.
Employees are all unhappy there.
Not at all stable
They don't care where they send you especially at night. We women nurses are forced to go to some very dangerous homes and neighborhoods very late at night. They do not ensure safety
Not at all. We are set up to fail at this place. They give us way too many patients and each patient in turn is unhappy with our service because we have a stressed patient load.
Inclusive / Diverse
Not at all.
What I like about the company
When I first started it was a good place to work. We had more nurses and it wasn't as dangerous.
What I dislike about the company
Lack of nurses and long hard hours going in dangerous neighborhoods late at night. Pay is the lowest in the valley. Administration has no infusion experience.
