Pathways Home Health takes many high acuity patients, for which it does not have adequate staff. Case manager loads are 35-40 patients. They have admit nurses with no home health experience, who perform admits set with problems & then hand them off to case managers who are too busy to follow up with most of the patients. Their newer electronic medical records system is a disaster, which only makes a horrible work load a disaster to manage. Don't expect to be paid for all the extra time spent on Pathways dysfunctional status. They expect 15-20 hours of your time donated to their dysfunction in lost wages(unpaid overtime) per pay period. The majority of new hires quit in the first month. It's not just me. It's other nurses as well. Don't believe me, check Medicare.gov, Pathways is rated in the bottom percentile.
