RN Case Manager (Former Employee) – Florida – November 15, 2018
patients and co-workers are wonderful Managers micromanage staff. Very frequently understaffed. Would not recommend to other RNs. that is all I have to say. I did not want to fill this out but im being forced to update my Indeed account
No other Hospice organization can ever come close to them. They are exceptional. It's easy to enjoy your work, when a company like this goes all the way for their patients and families. The staff and administration, are always there for you. The company is family orientated.
A typical day at work was about 10+ hours. Every day learned something new-e.g. IT. Most enjoyable part = pt. care. Management readily available. Positive work place culture & values e.g., respect, integrity, team work.

Certified Nursing Assistant CNA/PRN (Former Employee) – Port Charlotte, FL – May 30, 2017
When I first started with TideWell it was a family and the customer was the most important part of our world. All was very private and personal. Change in management came and company lost it's personal and private nature. The care of the customer was still good, but the rest became a money making business that I found unbecoming.
If you feel you are a person of integrity and you believe and are passionate about your job, this is not the place for you. While the staff is some of the best ever, management is a disaster. They have a "hoard the fame and spread the blame" mentality. If they like you, you are great. If they don't like you, they work very hard to fire you or get you to quit. Many people of great quality have been driven from this place because they had the audacity to think for themselves. The co-workers are the best part of this job - the management the worst. The organization was, at one time, one of the best places to work, but now it is impossible to deal with the bullying and the hostile work environment.
overall good place to work, management can be challenging and no advancement unless you have RN

I enjoyed the work I did, I enjoyed my team. Time spent with patient and family sometimes takes a backseat to all of the paperwork and documenting you have to complete. Because it is a medical model, as an MSW or anything other than an RN, there is no ability to advance really. There are some micro-managers in the agency.
Personally not a good fit for myself due to no patient contact besides speaking to family and patients briefly regarding Hospice services offered. Most of job required driving almost 50 miles a day visiting hospitals, nursing homes, ALF, and perspective clients homes.
Not enough time to thoroughly admit patient on the level of completion for my standard of care
