Registered Nurse Case Manager (Former Employee) – Columbus, GA – January 2, 2018
The job was great with caresouth until it was bought out by encompass home health. Encompass lowered rns salary as they said they would not. Hardest part of the job balancing family with documentation and most enjoyable the great nurses I worked with
Company, Care South had a class action law suit for improper handling / management of wages and billing! My immediate supervisor called me to return my Company Tablet and there would be NO FURTHER PATIENTS!
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Toccoa, GA – July 10, 2017
They treat their home health aids with respect, but started giving home health aides less work. Caresouth/encompass focuses on their physical therapy more than any other field. They also train out of country physical therapist for hire. Would not recommend for a certified nursing assistant to apply with this company because Encompass made changes that pushed C.N.A's out the door. C.N.A's cannot get full time positions with this company and are not eligible for benefits.
I love Carsouth it was a great company to work for

I missed this place when they got bought out in Panama City, Florida I was lost and end up leaving the new company because it did not compare. I was force to do something different after that. I have a passion doing this work but being a CNA was difficult to keep my pay flowing due to the insurance changes. But all and I loved the company. I just was I was hired fulltime instead of per visit. I missed out on a lot of benefits because they would never hiring me fulltime
My day at work was always different,and I liked it.It was always something to do.My coworkers were always willing to help.I learn how to step up exam rooms,answer phone,schedule appointments the front end and back end.
Office Manager/Staffing Coordinator (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – April 11, 2017
This was a very good company to work for. When i first started out we had very few clients. Over the years our clients increased and so did my job responsibilities. I have been fortunate to work with many clinicians and meet many of our clients. Never a boring minute.
The name changed while I was there, 3 different times.
RN (Former Employee) – Petersburg, VA – November 18, 2016
Great place to get experience. Bad place to work. By the time you leave there you will have all the experience you need as far as IV, wound care, patient care and meds. But you are overworked and under appreciated.
Internship (Former Employee) – Bennettsville, SC – September 13, 2016
very well put together and also amazing staff great learning experience. co-workers treated me more like I work there than a student. There no hard parts about this experiences they made me feel welcome. They showed me hoe to be patient and how to respond to the patients. The most enjoyable moment about this experience was meeting new people and they always made the patient happy.
LPN (Former Employee) – Thomaston, GA – August 14, 2015
This company was a very good company, I enjoyed working for them PRN, I did a range of nursing duties including but not limited to wound care, IV therapy, personal care ect, med review and administration. I would work for this company again.
Can't say a lot because I haven't gotten my hours yet but the staff seems to be very nice and understanding. Their rules are just like any other job but more laid back. They are awesome compared to DayBreak Adult Care. That agency is horrible and incompetent and needs to be out of business. I'm sure most of their clients feel the same.
personal care assistant (Current Employee) – Virginia – August 27, 2014
This is by far one of the worst jobs I have ever held. As of right now I am a PCA for this company. They bought out the previous owners. The PCA job has never been a good one. But after this company bought the last it all went straight to the garbage. EVERY SINGLE WEEK for a month my checks have been incorrect. Either due to payroll or the office staff. They do.not.listen to anything you tell them. When I say they I mean my specific office Staff and the company as a whole. They have been promising direct deposit for almost a year now. And ALL the clients I have taken care of tell me how many issues they have. They WILL NOT call either the employee or client to let them know of any changes. I stay because I have no choice. They do not care about their employees what so ever.
CareSouth is a Medicare certified home health company that primarily operates throughout the South and Mid-Atlantic states. Following is a review based on the experiences of several employees with the company.
If you work on the clinical side for this company, you may often be the ONLY clinician working from a branch office. They often rely heavily on PRN clinicians and it seems that they rarely are on time for visits to patients. Often, they don't show up at all. When this happens, patients and their families (often, sons or daughters) will then call the office and be very angry. Their anger is justified, as there are dozens of other agencies ready, willing and able to staff their needs.
If you work on the marketing side, be prepared to lay out hundreds of dollars each month for expenses such as lunches for hospitals and offices, travel money, etc. Then, you will wait at least a month or more to get reimbursed.
The company constantly harps on clinicians and marketing to get more business for the company. This would be possible if they actually did a great job at taking care of clients, but this does not happen. They do not care about the patients. Their only focus is on making billions of dollars each year and no matter what they make, it is never enough. You will never be praised, only criticized.
