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.
Do yourself a favor and stay away.
