Case Manager (Former Employee) – Frederick, MD – April 30, 2016
Typical day of 5-6 visits for patients who are homebound. My greatest reward from the position was the teaching that I was able to provide to my patients in order to help them maintain/improve health and remain at home rather that hospital or ECF.
LVN Field Nurse (Former Employee) – San Bernardino, CA – June 9, 2014
I would go into the office in the morning and wait for my daily list of patients. I would then map out my visits for the day and call all of my patients and give them an estimation of when I would arrive. This block of time would usually be no more than a 2 hour window. I would gather any information or supplies I would need for the day then leave the office. I worked with a great group of nurses and we would talk frequently about mutual patients so as to coordinate care as effectively as possible. One of the difficulties I faced would be obtaining doctor's orders quickly while out in the field and relaying new information to other nurses or therapists also caring for a particular patient. I enjoyed seeing and helping patients in their own home and environment. I feel patients heal more quickly and effectively at home surrounded my their families and belongings.
having the abililty to make my own schedule to some degree
Home Health Field Nurse (Former Employee) – Bradenton, FL – March 13, 2015
Home Health was another enjoyable job, and I got to meet many people whom I still think about. I was able to use my skills in IV therapy and wound care. I did not have enough clients to stay with the company.
Community Home Health was a great company to work for but when it merged to become almost family it created a lot of dysfunction
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Saint Augustine, FL – May 22, 2012
Initially when I started working for Community Home Health I loved it and it had a very positive environment. When it merged to become Almost Family it changed the complexion of the environment causing a lot of staff to leave and seek employment elsewhere. From whay Ihear now it has returned to a positive environment where a lot of old staff have returned.
Office Assistant (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – October 30, 2013
when I got into work I would print orders out, sort them, copy some put team # on the papers. I would get orders ready to mail. I worked with a great bunch of co-workers. The hardest part of my job was time management. The most enjoyable part was working.
i learned alot and was able to work with great people.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Youngsville, LA – August 14, 2014
Very rewarding area of nursing . Flexible Schedule for working parents. Helpful and supportive staff in office and in the field. Required to spend certain amount of time with patients rather than trying to figure out where you will find the time to care for all of your patients. The paperwork can become overwhelming but only if you procrastinate. Keep up with the paperwork and you will enjoy this job. I sure did!
Staff nurse; Coordinator and Director of Nursing (Former Employee) – Pompano Beach, FL – June 30, 2014
It was a pleasure to treat people at home but very hard traveling to see them and it was tough in any kind of weather. I also called on doctors for their referrals and really felt like I was getting no where. It was a frustrating job.
