Billing/Nursing Coordinator (Former Employee) – Blue Point, NY – October 31, 2017
You were busy from the time you get in until the time you left, this was a fast paced job. I learned a lot about Medicaid billing. It was interesting and you always learned something new everyday. The job was very rewarding when you're dealing with patients and family and your able to get them the help they need.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Blue Point, NY – October 9, 2017
Wanted to get at least 25-30 hours a week working with caring hands but they never seem to find me a job and I’ve been employed with them since August. I call everyday looking for a job and I haven’t had any luck at all. Very disappointed on the lack of communication of the nursing coordinators and how I have to get the attention multiple times to finally get a job. If you want a job ASAP with a home care company, keep your options open.
Mileage was not paid and driving your personal car all over the place was tough at times. You didn't get paid for drive time either. So getting your hours in was rough because you may have to drive all the way across town before seeing your next patient.
Caring Hands Home Health Care in my opinion is a joke. I don't think that they pay fairly on the requirements they want you to uphold. I feel they take advantage of the ones that work and the ones that don't are held on a pedestal. I would not recommend working for them.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Blue Point, NY – August 14, 2017
Company is a nice place to work for. Establishing a good relationship with management is not difficult. Supervisors are supportive of their nurses. As a company with a clientele consisting of many families, all of which have different personalities, experiences, and expectations, establishing trust is quite difficult at first. Nurses need to be confident in their skills and prove to be competent in providing safe and effective care.
Certified Nurse Assistant (Former Employee) – Sandy, UT – May 23, 2015
They have very nice managers. I've never worked for home health before, so maybe it's homehealth in general....they didn't train too well at first. The first few patients I took care of they just sent me out without telling me anything about the patients. I had no clue why or what I was to be doing at each house. I had to ask the parents what to do the first time.
I enjoyed meeting and working with different clients. I got to work with a variety of people and different age groups. I worked with clients with different conditions. mental and physical. The management are nice people.
Caregiver (Former Employee) – Clinton, MI – June 23, 2014
My typical day included running around like a mad person because I could never get anywhere fast enough or I couldn't do a thorough enough job. The hardest part is managing yourself to do everything that is required for you to do. I did make a few friends and I learned a lot but in the end I was just too overwhelmed.
RN Field Manager Suffolk County (Former Employee) – Blue Point, NY – June 22, 2014
This company is not professionally managed. They cannot provide or produce employee manuals. There is no staff orientation or paid training for a new case. If the employee wants to be oriented, they must train with the nurse working on the case without pay. There have been instances when LPNs or RNs have negotiated to be paid for training and after the training is completed, the money is not in their paycheck. When it is questioned, this agreement is denied or the owner decides to pay half the rate. Recently, a professional RN was employed as a Field Manager for Suffolk County and was let go because a former employee, both unprofessional and unreliable; however, a personal friend of the owner, decided she wanted that job. I watched the owner tell this professional RN the news outside the office, on the street, because the office is so small, the owner does not have a private office. The electronic health record is not secure. The employees can access it outside of work on their personal computers. The office staff comes and goes as they please, often times not showing up for work and they cannot be reached or getting a manicure and pedicure on a 30 minute lunch break. One morning, the full-time Human Resources/Payroll employee came into work and her desk was cleared off, a billing employee was sitting at her desk and the HR person was informed that she her hours were cut to one and one half days a week. I cannot believe what I see!
