LPN (Former Employee) – Kennesaw, GA – September 13, 2017
The staff was great to work with, they really showed teamwork when needed. The hours could be long. They pay should be increased for LPN's as they are also an integral part of the team as well as the RN.
My training was poorly structured and confusing. Most of the other employees are unhappy, overworked and as a new person when you don't know something you get treated badly. Management could care less about your work/life balance they want you to work all the time.I was placed on call without notice even when I was on PTO, told I would have assistance then that person was pulled elsewhere. Poor communication between managers and at times very unprofessional behavior. Many long time employees talk about how wonderful it was to work for this company years ago but note the climate has changed for the worse. Just look at the job openings. Some offices can barely stay open with a skeleton staff because of the turn over.
the checks don't bounce
very high insurance premiums, poor work/life balance, no standardized training for positions, poor IT support because it is all remote
Business Office Specialist (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – August 3, 2017
Workload is absolutely impossible for the staff they have and was told we didn't need more staff. Everybody puts well more than 40 hours in but are told we are not allowed over time. Then when you try to keep it at 40 hours, you get wrote up for work being behind. Health insurance is horrible, high deductible plan. Management is horrible. The pace in the office was absolutely unmanageable but nobody will listen, it's just do more, more, more. You feel no appreciation for hard work and they will fire you in a heartbeat. Run from this company.
Nothing really positive to report
Hourly employees working over 40 hours but dont get paid for their work, no employee appreciation work environment
Account Executive (Former Employee) – Enid, OK – July 27, 2017
I started with Amedisys when patient care was a priority. That quickly changed and it became all about the all mighty dollar. The quotas were ridiculously high and management was a joke. If you're going to work in home health steer clear of Amedisys.
Business Office Specialist (Current Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – July 26, 2017
Answer phones and schedule clinicians to see home bound patients. Scan medical documents into patient's chart. Run daily reports and work with authorization department to help obtain authorizations for nursing, therapy and home health aide visits.
Temp Staff R.N. Positions (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AL – July 24, 2017
I believe that an agency is only as good as the director running that local office. Amedisys was being introduced to their computer program for the first time and it had terrible flaws in it. Difficulty not having sufficient technical support.
Registered Nurse- Psych/Case Manager (Former Employee) – Wytheville, VA – July 12, 2017
I was able to orientate with another Psych nurse and able to learn the approach in a home health setting, which was a great learning experience for me. Hardest part of the job was seeing patients who were non-compliant and so depressed, but over-all it was a great job and was able to get gratification from helping just a little. I started working in one location, then was tranferred to another location to start the Psych nurse position in home health, but the office was staggering and we could not get it off the ground due to lack of support.
Enjoyed Psych home health.
Had to quit, since they could not offer me full time hours.
i enjoyed wished office didnt close should have gone to brandon to work instead of staying home a big regret i have, they trained very well and there is always someone to talk to to learn the job I like the family friendly atmosphere.
