Orientation in field( in patient homes) needs to be longer. Lack of communication between staff. Competencies and skill checklist are minimal. Required ceritfications for patient care are not maintained
LPN (Current Employee) – Little Rock, AR – October 15, 2018
I have worked here for over 3 years and I have enjoyed it very much. I love that I am not confined to one building all day. I get to get out and drive. I enjoy that every patient and every house I go to, is something new and interesting. I love this job!
Business Office Manager (Current Employee) – Champaign, IL – October 3, 2018
Everyone is very friendly and welcoming. There is alot to keep busy and productive. LHC is a GREAT employer. The only negative side is not enough training. For a brand new person to the company and type of work there needs to be more one on one training.
Clinical Transition Coordinator/ Marketing (Former Employee) – Rocky Hill, CT – October 2, 2018
I was with LHC for little over a year in the role of CTC. Not as much support as maybe needed because of personnel changes. On boarding process / Training was an area that could be improved upon. Frequent sales calls to go over numbers at time were stressful
Poor manager. Poor scheduler. Fri were a nightmare
Physical Therapist (Former Employee) – Tn – September 30, 2018
Poor manager, poor scheduler, poor culture. Fridays were the worst as all visits were passed to therapist at the last minute. Pta would move visits sometimes onto the same day as the therapist. Distinct lack of oversight.......pay was decent. Overall i left in a yr because i got tired of the bs.....
Pay was competitive
Management, scheduler, and culture were poor at best
Scheduler (Current Employee) – Buffalo, NY – September 25, 2018
LHC has not been good to us. We are constantly fighting to get paid. And it seems like its just from the lowest people in the company. I have never heard of the higher management not getting paid. The aides and office staff are the ones who usually have to fight for their money. They will not cut you a check when it's their fault. Usually, you have to wait until the next week to get paid and sometimes you still don't get paid. This is terrible. A lot of people live paycheck to paycheck. This is not right. We have families too. My advice is to not even think about working for this company!
LPN (Current Employee) – Cullman, AL – September 24, 2018
I greatly enjoy working for this company. Our office has a great staff from the office personnel, to the field nurses. I enjoy seeing patients in their homes. Our patient care managers are good at listening to the needs of field nurses and helping in any way they can, be it making calls, dropping off supplies to us in the field, or seeing patients when we are super busy. Our clinic director has an open door policy and is always willing to listen to any complaints, needs, ideas, or concerns. This job does require charting at home and making calls from home to set up your schedule with individual patients. But it also affords a lot of independence and flexibility in your schedule. I see on average 8 patients daily, but it ranges from 6-10 depending on census. The scheduler in my office is very conscientious of our mileage and tries her best to keep it down for us daily. I look forward to growing with this company and highly recommend it.
Flexibility in schedule, building relationships with patients and families, Pto.
Sucks the life out of the registered nurses. The company does not even try to figure out why the RNs don't stay.
Registered Nurse Case Manager (Former Employee) – Austintown, OH – September 17, 2018
They will work you to death if you let them get away with it. Poorest work life balance I have ever experienced. Registered Nurses handle the on call hours from 5 pm to 8 am, and weekends. Overflow from the day will be forced onto the Nurse on call, which means you work a full day as it is, then spend the evenings doing on call visits and Evening admissions. All electronic charting has to be completed by 9 am the next day so you have to stay up into the wee hours to get it done. It's a pace that few can keep up longer than a year. They also pay by the visit, not the hour. If you are unfortunate enough to have a 50 mile drive to and from your on call admission, you will make a very low wage per hour by the the time you are done. The LPNs and therapists tend to stay at the job, but the company cannot seem to figure out why they can't retain Registered Nurses. Health insurance is very expensive as well.
Much is expected with little reward and appreciation
Home Office Manager (Current Employee) – Lafayette, LA – September 17, 2018
I love the work that I do, however, we are overworked, understaffed, underappreciated. There is no work-life balance. Suggestions and opinions are often overlooked. Leadership (VP and above) does what they want regardless of recommendations and then we have to clean up the mess. It is hard to move forward when you are constantly recreating what is already in place. Instead of staffing appropriately we shift assignments and restructure.
The organization has great values and puts the patients first
VP level and above do not listen to their managers are value their expertise.
Physical Therapist (Current Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – September 14, 2018
A stable company with great management and support at any time of day. They really care about their patients and the best quality of care. LHC has a great group of workers. The hardest part about the job is the detailed documentation and the most enjoyable part of my job is to read the objective progress of clients.
home health field nurse (Former Employee) – Kenner, LA – September 13, 2018
orientation was overloaded and never completed. management is no where to be found. management is to comply with paper work. management is not concerned with patient care. management is concerned with home to get paper work correct to get paid. paperwork/computer work. 25% of your time is spent on patient care and 75% of time on paper work. nurses, pt, ot are paid by visits. after visit pay and time spent on paper work a typical rn will make about $23.50 hr. it normally takes most rn's 55 hrs to complete a 30 hr patient schedule.
Everyone in the office is willing to help one another . Family oriented atmosphere. Everyone has made the training and learning process alot easier. I love this job and the people i work with on a daily basis.
State Manager for FL, GA (Former Employee) – Lafayette, LA – September 10, 2018
Managing all aspects of the agencies I oversaw - patient care, employee productivity and satisfaction with their job, financial success of each agency, compliance with all regs and rules. I learned a great deal about financial management, changing efficiencies without ever compromising patient care or employee satisfaction and living on the road! Also, learned to speak in front of huge crowds with coonficence! Great and supportive workplace culture Hardest part of the job - long hours and constant travel away from home Most enjoyable part of the job - seeing happy patients and employees! And I truly learned from and grew to really enjoy the travel.!!
travel and fun social events
really not many . Maybe, the long hours (but I didn't mind)
