Home health nurse hospice (Former Employee) – Wisconsin – September 1, 2015
Nice coworkers, nice to have 1 on 1 time with patients and familiesStressful work environment at times, long hours, no work/life balance. Management overbearing and hypocritical. Pay and benefits so so.
RN (Current Employee) – Madison, WI – December 12, 2015
Love working at Home Health United! Large home health organization with multiple opportunities for career development, growth and advancement. Patient care is a priority as is the training and support of staff.
Multiple opportunities, great benefits, advancement opportunities.
As with most health care related jobs there are times one must work off hours, on call, etc. The weekend/call rotation is comparable or better than other organizations I've encountered.
RNCM (Former Employee) – Wisconsin – January 28, 2016
Don't bother if you are looking for a healthy work environment. Patients and co-workers are great, that' about it. Very low morale with staff because of uppermanagement and supervisors. Company cares more about profit than patients. High turnover of RN's due to long hours, on-call several nights a week and every other weekend, and constant micro-managing. A truly compassionate person would not fit in with this company, look elsewhere. Dont let sign-on bonuses sway you, that shows they are desperate for help.
Patients and co-workers
Micro-managing, lack of trust from supervisors, put profit before patients
Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – February 16, 2016
Was told would be working 1 weekend per month and it was 2. Poor management, weekend schedule came out with mistakes and last minute- hard to plan around this. Management demanding travel to other offices in bad weather. Incompetent staff. Was told 5-6 patients per day and was always more, schedule constantly changing. No team work, no accountability for mistakes. Poor scheduling department, many other employees on FMLA therefore always short staff in nursing and scheduling.
over-worked, more travel then expected, high turnover rate of management, low merit increase
Home Health Nurse (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – July 24, 2014
I never knew what my day would bring, schedule changed on a dime. Management wanted PRODUCTIVITY but no time to get ready for the day before the actual day of visit. Travel distances were increased with travel from far east side to far west side. I would not recommend this company unless you can commit 24/7 to the job. I heard so many times from staff: "How do they expect me to see all these patients in an 8 hour day?" This job does not have to be this stressful, but it is.
fair compensation for alternate shift
poor management, hiring process does not reflect true working conditions, productivity productivity productivity
Therapist (Current Employee) – Wisconsin – July 28, 2015
Poor company to work for, employee dissatisfaction rampant. Unequal treatment of staff with obvious favorites. Impossible to get approval for continuing education and in services only focus on making more profits for the company and "partners". Very little respect for employee feedback. Best part of working at HHU are the coworkers when you have a chance to see them. Worst part is upper management and supervisors with little clinical experience.
Nurses and therapists want to do what is right for the patients.
Hard to get time off, oppressive policies and procedures that decreases efficiency of staff.
Overall Culture for employee's is very negative. No follow through from upper management.
Purchasing Manager (Former Employee) – Madison, Wi – June 27, 2014
Because of the lack of training, concise policies and procedures, and lack of follow up with most of the management team, days were not typical or organized in most departments. Senior leadership constantly spoke to employees about the fact that they were there to listen to employee's ideas, suggestions and opportunities for positive change; however, every employee that I had direct contact with would state that if they brought up certain ideas, suggestions, or areas for improvement, it fell on deaf ears. Employees were promised changes in positions with an increase in pay, and then the position was given to another employee, with no feedback or reason given. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with some of the other employee's.
working with some good employees
poor leadership, hourly pay for employee's low, no proper training
Customer Service Representative Retail Showroom (Current Employee) – Madison, WI – May 2, 2014
My typical day is very productive and busy, not much time to sit and even think about how busy you are, however I prefer this. I am learning so much about all the different insurance companies and policies, what's covered what's not and etc. The hardest part is keeping up with Medicare's changes! Management listens, they are open to suggestions to make the place run better. What I like most is that I am challenged. Everyday I learn something new
free coffee, great co-workers, great team work
fussy customers, lots of gossip by staff, ticketing system not a good learning system
medical coder/referral assistant (Former Employee) – madison,wi – July 11, 2012
get to work at 8:00 clock check to see if any coding need done from the previous nite.what i learned is learn everything you can for the aspect of your job because if you don't stay at this job you will have some experience to write in your resume.the hardest part of the job is when you dont have a lot of work to do you have to find something to keep you busy.the most enjoyable is when we made baskets for hospice.
Has provided a wealth of knowledge in the area of billing
Patient Account Representative (Current Employee) – Madison, WI – October 2, 2013
It has given me a great wealth of expertise in the field of insurance billing from commercial billing to Medicare and Medicaid billing. I have gone as far as I can with this position and am looking to use my knowledge and expertise in helping others in the billing field.
