I've been with the company 2 years. 13 RNs resigned in frustration in those 2 years. Someone just asked me if the director is an RN. Most of the nurses are over age 50, "raised" on paper charting. When the new nurses interview and find out we are not using electronic records, they decline the position. If they stay, they just can't believe how redundant the record keeping is, mistakes are made in transcription, and you never catch up.

The company wanted to save money so they decided to cut everyone’s hourly pay scale. They chop the pay down to equal non-profit organizations pay. The work load was brutal. Work place bullies. Lazy charge nurses that walked around sabotaging good employees in order to make it look like she was doing a great job. Stressful environment using fear factors against nurses. The huge pay cut was an insult! Resulting in several resignations of nurses who worked there greater than 5 years. Agency had to be called in to fill all those shifts at a much higher rate of pay. What a poor decision! Cut people’s pay! Costed more in the long run and such a decline in the quality of patient care due to all the high turn over and agency fill ins.

I can only echo what others have said. From my perspective, the expectations are high with no direction or support on the state or regional level. They leave you to sink or swim. AND believe me, the pillars are not equal! Its is ALL about money.
Quality scores at any cost, but no real quality on the ground level. Work the field staff into the ground and who has time for quality care.
Then they say hold them to the standard. Coach them up or coach them out. But let someone complain, then it is your neck on the chopping block. And God help you if you come into opposition with any of "the family". And there are plenty of those in home office and also remote locations.
Myself and many previous managers would say there is no way to succeed longterm with this company unless you are a total yes man.
Don't look to HR, they must be yes men to keep their jobs too.
Best gift I was ever given, was my freedom from this company that I would have worked myself into the ground for. So thankful their loyalty to "the people" they say 'it's all about" was not as legit as mine was to them.

I thought that Lhc was a great company to work for. I had been there for a number of years only to find out that I would have to take a cut in pay, relocate to another position within the company or just leave with a lie of an explanation to why my job was being replaced. That company only thinks about the people in the corporate world. Lhc needs more diversity. It’s so sad how they treat there employees and patients. That company loves to receive but not give.

The Home Office in Lafayette is overrun with politics. It's unspoken of course, but leaders are divided into two cliques -- those in the CEO's camp and those in the President's camp. Ironoically, despite their supposed disperate philosophical differences, both groups model the exact same bad behaviors like favoritism, nepotism, withholding information, inability to execute, failure to listen and value to those they lead, etc. The lack of professionalism is astonishing for a company this size. Naturally, all of this translates into a toxic work culture and predictably low employee morale.

I thought my prayers had been answered. I had a strong desire to work for hospice and I finally got the chance! I really loved the job and the patients only to be thrown under the bus so to speak! Very little training, I was thrown out in the field without any training in documentation, filling out time sheets, ect. Wolves in sheep's clothing. I tried my best to get along with everyone, did my job to the best of my knowledge. So much back stabbing or jealousy. They never gave me a chance! I felt like they set me up to fail! They did just that, the one job I really wanted and loved just slipped through my fingers. 1 person started one lie after another and of course they believed her because I was the new kid on the block, they let me go less than 2 weeks after I started, 1 day on the job by myself! Bit the old saying, what comes around goes around....well I find put a few months later that she no longer worked there. If I could just go back and have another chance because I loved everything about my job except for office personnel. Working with hospice I my true desire!!

The work environment at Home Office is stressful and morale is low. Employees do not feel they have a voice. It really doesn't take much effort to create a semi-decent employee culture, so the fact that this 20 year old company does not have it is very telling. I had a great boss who made me feel valued, but once she left the vacuum was enormous. During my time here, I noticed most of the high achievers and talented people don't last very long. The either get "ghosted" for speaking up against the status quo or they resign.

The culture is simple:. Make the company money. Anything else, they don't care about.
