Pros: continuing ed, supportive staff, team approach, mileage reimbursement, guaranteed hours, flexible, good compensation
Cons: do your own scheduling, things can change rapidly, extra work at home sometimes with prep for week/creating HEP, calling clients, etc; nature of home health aspects (dirty homes, i.e.), cover large territory
Great for people who don't mind having your schedule change suddenly and not always able to plan ahead, need to be adaptable and able to "roll with it". Things can happen, such as client goes to ER before you show up to house, etc. Enjoy most aspects of the job except for extra time calling people to re-schedule/ call doctors when things go wrong, especially when helping cover other people who are – more... on vacation.
Enjoy helping those clients who want to be helped. Overall, most days manageable and reasonable, occasional crazy days such as when someone goes to hospital or go to house and they are not there. Management fantastic, office staff supportive and easy to reach, excellent orientation/training and ease into full case load, paid for team meetings and required training either online or in person to make you better at your job.
Overall, quality company, just nature of home health that has some aspects that are less than desirable, but again nature of home health (status of some homes, clients who smoke, client's who don't follow instructions, non-compliance, sudden schedule changes, etc.)
If missing visits end of week can do audits, guaranteed full time. – less
