Compassionate organization providing excellent care
CNA (Former Employee) – Hendersonville, NC – April 6, 2016
Overall I was completely satisfied with my employment at bayada. The organization had an amazing vision and stood true to its promises. I met a number of excellent people during my span of employment with bayada. They worked wonderfully with my schedule and I was able to go to school full time mean while raising two children on my own. There is not much room for advancement at all. The salary was quite low but the benefits of scheduling evened out the missed income.
Scheduling, work environment, stress level, organization
Low salary, no room for advancement without more schooling.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – New Jersey – February 17, 2016
Working with the field staff is great as they are all dedicated and go above and beyond for their clients,but management is less than to be desired. Support from office staff is available but it's pointless to even ask for because majority of clinical staff hasn't been in the field in many many years so they have no clue! Common sense is lacking in the office. Referrals are not reviewed prior to accepting. Pay is extremely low and benefits are horrible. Work life balance is non existent. I spend 14-16 hours a day working charting, working with clients or driving. Lots of work not being paid for. No raises!!!! I love what I do everyday and just wish this company would realize what an asset their employees are. Without us, they are nothing! They need to start practicing what they preach...The BAYADA Way!!!
I have been in the home care field for close to 10 years, and worked for several agencies prior to Bayada. This company has been a great company to work for. Awesome training, flexible hours, competitive pay. As their employee you also receive good benefits. They are very professional, respectful and organized. Everyone works together (from the management to the employees) to give the patients the best care possible. They offer great incentives to keep the company growing. I highly recommend it.
flexible schedule, professional staff, friendly work environment
Marketing Manager (Current Employee) – Delaware – January 19, 2016
A typical day @ work consists of at least 9 calls on Primary care MD's and specialty MD's on the benefits of using BAYADA home health. This company has a very good reputation in the Delaware market and has the largest hospital referral account in the country. I love interacting with the MD's and assist them in decreasing hospital re-admits. I continue to keep up with all the changes in hospital and MD reimbursements as the affordable care act evolves.
Would take client out to exercise, out to dinner, work on skills asking waiter for different things and paying for the bill.Like to make crafts in the summer planned on 2 to 3 crafts went to different places the library there was a ceramic place that was inexpensive. Walked around the track and did water aerobics.
On Call Manager (Current Employee) – Moorestown, NJ – February 3, 2016
Bayada always offers ongoing training to all employees. It is great for advancement. There are always on line seminars for you to keep up on new homecare laws or changes. The managers are easy to work with and always willing to help. My co-workers at Bayada have become friends.
The pay was low and they didn't offered insurance, but since it was home health you could some what make up your own schedule. The hours are there for work. I easily worked 40+ hours a week if I wanted.
Licensed Practical Nurse (Current Employee) – Egg Harbor Township, NJ – September 13, 2016
If you LOVE what you do but need a change... come work for BAYADA! This company cares about YOU! They offer flexible schedules to fit your lifestyle, clients matched to your skills and interests, rewarding one to one care in the home and at schools, comprehensive training, including pediatric training and simulation lab training using state of the art manikins, weekly pay, benefits, recognition and scholarship programs. The office works well with the field nurses, they keep commitments, they are dedicated, communication is amazing and they are very professional! Some field nurses I met have been working for this office for 5 or more years! I feel very connected to my office and we are an amazing team!
Home Care Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Elkin, NC – October 23, 2015
good place to work to work for client care, the general environment and attitude of nursing staff is to provide the best possible care to our clients and by being in private home settings you can really take the time to care for the patients needs and wants. it can be tedious at times with repetitive tasks, but other times it is a lot of fun like when you get paid to help your patient go to school, sports, or games.
independence, time to pamper patients, work with families
no breaks, exspensive benefits, sometimes out of work when patients are hospitalized
Home Health RN (Former Employee) – High Point/Greensboro, NC – January 20, 2016
A typical day in the beginning was that I would work 4-16 hours in a home with a client that had a trach or was on a ventilator; whoever needed skilled care. Then I started doing home health by doing the admissions and labs, wound care and medication management. I also was doing the head to toe assessments and making sure they were eligible for home health. I had great co-workers to work with. All of the field staff worked together to help out the client. The hardest part of the job were the long hours of working 6-7 days per week and being on call 1-4 times per week and working 17 hours per day. I again learned the importance of a great team. We excelled in team work with the other field employees.
I had great co-workers to work with.
The lack of administrative staff helping out with problems.
LPN (Current Employee) – Bloomsburg, PA – September 15, 2016
Bayada is high in quality nursing care, ongoing education and professionalism. They care about their clients as well as their employees. The clinical manager and clerical manager were easy to communicate with.
The easiest part of the job was loving my clients. As well as utilizing my nursing skills. The hardest part of the job was watching chronically ill children with grim diagnoses and prognoses decline.
frequent in-services and yearly Competency skills test assured accurate, updated quality nursing care given to patients.
CLIENT SERVICES MANAGER (Former Employee) – Falmouth, MA – August 18, 2016
Work/life balance was non existent, field and office staff work past normal hours, office staff are not compensated for their overtime. Operationally, the company needs to reconfigure their structure. I've never witnessed so many employees resign so quickly after only weeks or months of working with a company. I believe in what the company stands for and their mission, but when it comes to the individual offices, so many problems are overlooked and brushed under the rug.
Poor work/life balance, no overtime provided, poor management
when i first start working for this company i really like getting up going to work because i like helping the elderly as day when on i learned different things with my clients i never had any contact with coworkers the benefits is half your check they give out points instead of pay raise they only give you 9.00 some of the staff was good they do not acknowledge your good deed i worked for another company and received employee of the month and bonus you can forget about a pay increase not happening. staff try act like they was nice on phone reason being they record every conversation
make your own schedule the clients
not good benefits not enough hours you cant work over 40 hours does'nt pay for miles for gas
