Look objectively at the financial, cultural and care provision and then act accordingly. Staff do not trust most if not all of the VPs, with good reason. Educate BOD about the poor taste left in folks mouths after layoffs immediately before and after the holidays after merger and particularly in Nov/Dec 2017. They owe an apology. Stop relying on ex-employees like the ex-CEO and ex-clinical director involved in the VNA after they "left". Be less concerned about potential future consulting and other opportunities after contract runs out and be more concerned about doing what is right. Stop listening to consultants as they are going to tell you whatever you want to hear so long as you continue to give them business. They bamboozled the prior CEO. Listen to the experts at the VNA, value new ideas. Also, longevity is often not a good thing, consider cleaning house of those VPs that put us in the place we are now. Stop hiring friends. We are the largest VNA in the area, hire experts from around the country, not in our back yard.

Not too good. Read reviews, seems to be in a bad state over the past few years and getting worse instead of better. The most important people are the staff and they are not happy.

Lack of caring from some VPs, directors and managers (not all). Decisions made without input from staff. Too many patients and not enough clinicians to see them. Unrealistic expectations.

Get rid of bullies and managers, directors and VPs who are not responsive to staff. Set an expectation for the staff being the priority and you will see that then the patients, physicians, etc. will become their priority. Ask and listen to the underlings who offer constructive advice.
