Pediatric Home Health, LVN (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – February 24, 2014
As one the first VIVA employees I am pleased to say that patient care has always been a priority. There's great communication with staff nurses and management. Unfortunately i'm unable to get work when my primary patient is hospitalized. My needs are different from staffing needs. However, this could happen with any staffing agency. I'm proud to say that after 5 years of employment that this hasn't always been an issue. Overall great place to work if you're flexible!
loving and caring staff
lack of work stability that comes along with staffing agencies
In Home Private Duty Pediatric Skilled Nurse (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – July 26, 2012
This is a small company who has cast a wide net. However, they simply don't have a high enough census so work is solid for 2 months and then boom, your case isn't recerted and they can't find you consistent work for months. I enjoyed immensely caring for my patient but then they had one problem after another getting me another full time case, their base client load is simply too small. They need to spend more time marketing & less time nurse recruiting until they can balance that out so there is work for the nurses they hire. I called & called & the work just wasn't there and they just wanted me to take a fill in here or there. I can't feed my family like that.
So great pay, and great work-when you can get it, but not managed properly so their nurses don't starve & have to find a new job when their current case finishes.
insurance is a joke, no consistent full time work availability.
I have always been able to find work with viva and would much rather work there, rather than any other agency in town. I have worked with many pedi agencies, and this one has been the best to me, in my opinion.
