Healthcare revolves around Strict Corporate Guidelines
Field Nurse (Former Employee) –  Sarasota,FLJuly 18, 2015
High turnover in Directors, Clinical Managers and field clinicians due to high corporate expectations with minimal orientation and training provided to perform duties and responsibilities. Salary and visit pays not competitive and expectations unrealistic. Corporate sets very strict guidelines and micromanages employees. Typical day at work consists of repetitive reports and census and weekly staff meetings, with emphasis on how company is losing money and reason why field clinicians will not get cost of living raise, while annual incentives and bonuses given to "preferred few".
If you value professionalism and genuine patient advocacy, not a conformist, nor a fan of socialist ideals , then stay away from Mederi Caretenders. There will be other jobs for you.
Pros
Hardworking and caring field clinicians
Cons
Corporation, not employee friendly; high expectations for job description with inadequate training and low pay

I've had nothing but a great experience working with Mederi Caretenders. They show a great deal of patient care, employees are wonderful to work with, and very family oriented which is great.

Overall, a great company. They practice their philosophy and focus on patient care.
PSN, Psychiatric Skilled Nurse (Current Employee) –  Zephyrhills, FLOctober 3, 2014
Unfortunately, they closed my original office and merged it with another (so far away). Although I still was employed, I had a hard time adjusting to the new work environment (very quiet) and now I am driving 100+ miles almost every day. They also started letting go most of the staff from my original office (great group of people-we were a great team). But, overall, Mederi is a great company with a great philosophy that supports staff in being able to perform appropriate patient care at home. As with all home health, there is a lot of paperwork (not on computers yet), and work/life balance is difficult most times.
Pros
focused on patient care
Cons
paperwork, driving 100+ miles daily

Good beginning job
Clinical Team Assistant (Current Employee) –  Breese, ILJuly 23, 2014
This was my first full time position and it was a great learning experience. A typical day consists oh filing, answering phones, putting in patient information, and payroll. The most enjoyable part of my job is getting all of the projects completed.

Junior high with immature "managers" & high employee turnover
healthcare field staff (Current Employee) –  orlando,flMarch 10, 2014
Typical day involved attending weekly meetings listening to managers and greedy health staff cry how the census is low. Managers cry about low census which means less medicare dollars for the owner. Greedy healthcare staff have at least 30 visits a week but still cry that their not making any money.

Managers favor certain healthcare staff over others which means tons of visits for one person and barely any for others.

There is no hr to talk to in person and you have to speak to someone in Kentucky to speak to hr. Half the time, they don't even know who you are and it takes like 10 minutes to find you in their system.

Orientation as a new staff member is horrifying. They give you a sheet to check off and say you have a week to do it. when you're given the sheet, they tell you you have to get this checked off with another staff member on visits. It takes forever because no staff wants you to come along on their visits. When you hand in the sheet, you get yelled at because you didn't get hand washing checked off. LOL

High turnover rate of staff, managers, directors. Stay away!!!!
Pros
meeting patients from diverse backgrounds
Cons
coroparate rope tied tight to healthcare staff, biggest concern is milking medicare dollars

Very fulfilling position working one-on-one in a patient's home
Therapist (Current Employee) –  FloridaApril 19, 2013
Working in home health is very rewarding in the sense that because of the one-on-one attention you get to know your client's needs very well. They are also more comfortable and happier being at home rather than in a skilled nursing setting.

The company is very supportive, co-workers and management are supportive as well. Communication level with other professionals is high, benefitting needs of the patient.

Very generous education opportunities for full-time staff.
Pros
excellent pay and education opportunities
Cons
no time with my family secondary to high work hours per week
