LPN (Former Employee) – Reading, PA – August 18, 2018
Poor schedulers, no communications with staff. Often sent on assignments nobody at residence. Terrible conditions for patients..Caseworkers are about getting more cases and do not follow up with already est, cases
This place will work you until you drop and then criticize your performance
School Health Nurse (Former Employee) – Milton, FL – August 1, 2018
The lady in charge of hiring is on a constant power trip. She will insist you work so many hours a day you are totally drained. She will make promises she has no intentions of keeping. Her dishonesty makes you feel like you as a employee and as a person does not matter. If she was not there it would be a better place to work.
You get a lot of hours
Management does not follow through with their promises.
HOME HEALTH LPN (Former Employee) – Reading, PA – July 22, 2018
Probably the most organized and hands on agency I've worked for. They are very thorough and provide you with everything you need for Vital signs unlike other agencys that prefer you purchase your own equipment. I liked this agency but there is not any room for growth in home care. They do have benefits but pay very poorly and make it almost impossible to get a raise. They start you off at $19 an hour and you have to wait a year and apply for a raise. You have to have an interview and review for the raise by several people just for a $0.40 increase and you cannot apply again for a raise. There are several other agencys that start off at $25.
The management staff was compassionate. They don't throw new employees into the job without any training. They have them shadow a nurse for five weeks. The want to set up their employees for success not failure.
Able to get to know your patients
Hard to have social life due to all the paper work.
A/R Collections Specialist (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 8, 2018
This company brought me on as a Temp. I was thankful for the opportunity but my supervisor was lazy, my trainer had no patience and my manager barely acknowledged anyone on our team. They claimed I didn't grasp the system we worked in but with coming to a new company I feel (3 weeks) still isn't long enough to learn a whole system and it's processes. Especially when you have various situations. This company didn't have time for my desire to learn their system and to eventually thrive in my position. Good luck if you are hired as a Collector here.
None (Wasn't there long enough)
Poor Training, Unenthusiastic management, Misconceptions on productivity
Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Exeter, PA – July 5, 2018
Home care was not for me. The families were mean. Some of the house had cockroaches crawling on me. I would sign up for 8 hour days and get stuck for 12 hours because the parent or next shift would not show up. The children were fun to take care of. The pay was great.
Productive and easy to work with. Frielbdly environment
Patient Support Assistant (Former Employee) – Columbus Ohio – July 2, 2018
This is a great place to work to gain experience and have a feel for what hospital setting. Senior nurses are very approachable and willing to teach us PSA. Young nurses had the opportunity to shine and show what they learn from training etc.
This was a decent home health company to work for. They showed a genuine concern for patient safety and well-being. However, they had too many nurses and not enough patients. I was available for a full-time position, but had weeks where they only had openings totaling 10 hours a week. Also, be prepared to travel far and often... The office staff was very pleasant (always willing to help and answer questions, "nurse appreciation" lunches at the main office, friendly office staff) and the company made sure to give you plenty of shadowing shifts if needed before having you work independently with a patient. The patients and families were generally very nice. This is a strictly pediatric company. You work a full shift (4 to 12 hrs) with one patient in their home, with no breaks. You will also occasionally accompany patients to doctor appointments and/or school.
