On Call Nurse (Former Employee) – Ohio – August 10, 2016
Worked as an on call nurse for about 6 months. I had no hospice experience and they allowed me to shadow another on call nurse for two days as my orientation. Then they put me by myself!! After certain hours the managers wouldnt answer calls when I needed them. There is nothing more frustrating then being at a patients house who called because of an issue and not knowing what to do and no one will answer their phone. A few of the managers had no clue when you ask them questions. They were always changing paperwork and never kept the on call staff in the loop as to what was going on. When you went to them with complaints they did not care. Per Medicaid and Medicare guidelines their is criteria that patients have to meet to qualify for certain services. Managers would tell you to bring the patients onboard for these services knowing they did not meet the criteria. They are unethical and only care about the bottom line, making themselves money!!! It is a very cliquish and they lie.
Management is horrible, poor work and home life balance, unethical practices.
Home Health LPN (Former Employee) – Bradenton, FL – July 28, 2016
This company used to be great to work for until it went under new management. Then as usual everyone thought they knew what was best and forgot the real reason why nurses have jobs...patients!!! There was so much extra stuff and micromanaging that it was nearly impossible to take proper care of your patients. Sad. If the management changed I would go back in a heartbeat. The rest of the staff was AMAZING!
good pay, benefits
management, not a "defined" area you worked in, changed according to how people in charge felt about you ;(

You stay busy Mgmt great at this branch Co-workers were great Good company to want to grow! Sorry I had to relocate You stay busy Mgmt. great at this branch Co-workers were great Good company to want to grow! Opportunities for advancement are always available
I enjoyed working for Home Health. It became very stressful and overwhelming because of the Office Manager who had a terrible attitude. There was a lot of responsibility placed on me as far as office work and not enough hours in the work day to get everything done.
Great oportunities, hard to have good work/life balance as fulltime RN
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Augusta, GA – July 12, 2016
Loved the patients and their families and helping bring support to them. Support team was awesome and hard working. Expectations were high to see patients and document and follow through on all changes in allowed time. Did receive compensation for documentation time, just hard to have time for life outside of work, documenting, and being on-call. Very thorough orientation.
opportunities for service, great relationships with patients, families, and care team members
didn't feel support from management to balance work/ life, company unable to hire and maintain enough nursing staff
RN Case Manager (Current Employee) – Florence al – July 8, 2016
Horrible working environment. Ex director is not helpful. Office management only concerned about leaving on time. Rn 's are turning in notices right and left. Upper management is causing the long term employees to leave. Very bad !!!!
Horrible place to work. Unethical managers whose job is to profit and cut expenses at the expense of patient care. They demand employees only have 40 hrs at the end of the week yet call you and demand you see extra patients. Members of the sales team are paid in excess of 100k per year while the nurses and aides are doing all the hard work and grossly underpaid and bully them into working OT yet won't pay you for it. Shows you where their primary interests are. Sales reps are given large monthly bonuses and take referral sources out to eat at the best restaurants in town all on the company dime while aides and nurses struggle to find time to eat a decent lunch. Stay away from this company.
Unethical business practices, patient care takes the back seat
