Pros: good pay.
Cons: the immature and unprofessional staff. long hours.
hen I first started working for it Amedisys I loved it I was the Psychiatric RN the only one. I worked psychiatric cases and I worked medical cases, admissions, resumption of care, nursing visits etc. Most days i would see 5 psych patients, 1-2 admissions or a recert, roc etc. Some nights I was up to 1-2am completing my work. IT was awful, after awhile it got so overwhelming that I just had to quit I had no social life, no family life and no one cared the DOO and the clinical manager became spiteful and childish when I complained about all the work that I had piled up in front of me while their buddies ( other RNs) would have 'office days'. I was told I had a bad attitude. I have never worked with such a immature, unprofessional group of people until I worked at Amedisys. The pay was not worth the workload and the disrespect I received.
