Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Waupaca, WI – March 4, 2018
Recover Health is working on growing in this area. They don't have enough clients at this point to keep all the nurses they have busy. I live in the northern part of their area and there just aren't enough clients.
RN Case Manager Home Health (Former Employee) – Baraboo, WI – April 8, 2018
Company pays their nursing staff per visit, not hourly which after factoring all the time at home working on paperwork or taking calls in between visits, pay ends up being a little more than minimum wage. Upper management hasn't been open to changing the nursing pay to hourly to help improve retention. Poor retention, which has lead to poor morale due to continual increased stress from increased work amongst nursing staff. Electronic medical record is lacking many things that would increase efficiency and productivity. I wish I could have stayed as I loved working with patients in their homes but was unable to afford to stay. I didn't feel like I ever had time away from work even during outside hours.
RN Case Manager (Former Employee) – Hibbing, MN – April 3, 2018
Lack of training on computer systems, lack of general training. Lies about benefits for families being cost effective. Low support for all staff. Low retention rates. Not enough homemakers, home health aides. Lack of work for nursing unless you want to pay 2-300 monthly out of pocket to drive. Poor moral . Nursing is not valued. You have to set up own benefits if your willing to pay . Management doesn’t follow through on promises. Lack of work for nursing in Iron Range unless you do the traveling. Clients express dissatisfaction because of low retention rates and no aides available.

I would advise others not to apply for a position with this company as a nurse. You literally sit all day/night with the one client and it is more like NA work than RN work. You will loose your skill set and the pay is below average!
RN (Current Employee) – Minnesota – February 13, 2018
I received great training in the office and then in the homes. The Clinical Manager has been available for questions and support. I am excited for the days I get to go to school with my client. It is a very rewarding job to be able to work with these children and see them play with their siblings and so happy. I feel I am really making a difference. My families are so thankful even on the stressful days.
Advocacy and collaboration can help clients stay in their homes
Care Manager (Current Employee) – Minnesota – February 7, 2018

ILS Worker (Current Employee) – Minnetonka, MN – January 24, 2018
Haven't worked for long here but from the little time, there is so much travelling which contributes to wear and tear of your vehicle. Even though mileage is paid, this is nothing compared to the miles you put on your car. The management is also shrewd on hours.
Recovery and resuming daily life are the basis of this company.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – November 28, 2017
A typical day at work consists of 10 hrs.per day,working 30-40 hrs per week and over time if needed. I have had experience and training in caring for vent pts.,both adult and infant, trach. care. To adapt to special circumstances,cultures and family situations. The management team I am now employed by is superb, teaching and assisting with any means needed by patient as well as employee.The most enjoyable part of the job is the ability to cover and assist with client and family needs.
The employees and the culture and practices of the company.
As in all of nursing there is very little down time but that also can be a positive factor.
ILS worker (Current Employee) – Saint Cloud, MN – November 27, 2017
When i applied i was told i would be getting 40 hours a week i have now been there for five months and have yet to work 30-35 hours. Some weeks i barley make 25. The team i works with was friendly and knowledgeable when there wee questions
Local management plays favorites and is very labile. Poor decision making is leading to negative patient outcomes. With 10+ years in this field this is by far the worst outfit yet! There's a very high turnover leaving many feelings of insecurity.
Schedule flexibility, Patients and families are lovely! The nurses are very helpful
You go to work and get your job done and mind your own business then you are fine. People there are very nice but every business has it's own down fall. I enjoy working here but it's way to far of a drive for me.
ec (Current Employee) – Council Bluffs, IA – October 26, 2017
I enjoy working for Recover Health. I consider everyone that I work with family. We all look out for each other. Everyone that is with Recover Health put the clients first. And really cares about getting the clients the best service they can get. Great Company to work for.
Staff (Former Employee) – Hibbing, MN – October 13, 2017
Management is a joke! Turnover is outrageously high! They have a habit of terminating employees rather than investigating whatever the problem may be. Upper management hire a manager (more than once, awful ones at that) and offer no support to the branch. Management doesn't listen to staff concerns- they say they listen but bring out no change or terminate the employee for voicing their concerns. Company has a great mission statement however it's only words. There's a lot of patients that are affected by how this company treats the employees but they don't seem to care. Do yourself a favor, find a different company that actually cares about the staff and clients.
Worker (Former Employee) – Saint Cloud, MN – September 21, 2017
People don't communicate and seem very unhappy and over stressed. Management talks badly about staff to other staff. It's very hard to feel secure in your position. Poor training of new employees, bad management and lack of appreciation gives this place a very high turnover. I have seen many people that are hard-working, capable as well as compassionate about their jobs leave. 20+ office employees have quit due to the chaos in the office. They attempt to push the mission statement but management does not adhere to it. Owners and upper management continue to claim they will change things but sit by and watch it continue to fall apart rather than do what is needed. Patients come last. It's about the money. No more no less.
