Pros: Caring for Patients
Cons: long hours, poor pay, poor benefits, unable to get requested time off due to high staff turnover/lack of staff
Management shows favoritism and allows certain office staff to arrive late or leave early: frequently while other staff is waiting for assignments, ( delays patient care and prolongs the work day) Management allows several office staff to have lunch breaks at the same time, leaving little support in the office. Little to no training / orientation. No regard for employees personal lives or personal time off, Never any mention of a pay increase with yearly evaluations. Medical benefits are terrible and expensive. Office staff is unorganized and will call case manager near the end of the day to inform of a patient that needs to be seen "now" due to being overlooked. No additional pay for weekends. Very small amount per day for taking call. No compensation for drive time between patient homes even though you are working for this company during that drive time. Most co-workers are nice, and helpful, A lot of the employees complain privately about the conditions, but fear that there will be repercussion if they voice their opinions/concerns.
Most enjoyable part of the job is caring for patients.
High staff turnover-continuous lack of staff.
