    I worked at Gentiva (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Rewarding to help others get the personalized medical care they need in their homes.

    Cons

    Office is short staffed and the staff is very unfriendly and unwelcoming. Working thru lunch is expected. Working late is assumed. Health insurance is very expensive. Hands down the worst place I've ever worked.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people. You have to spend money to make money.

    Pros

    There are no pros to list that I can think of.

    Cons

    DO NOT WORK HERE. Management is grossly incompetent and unprofessional. They thrive on office drama. They expect you practice beyond your scope of practice. They are money hungry. Patient care is not a priority for these people. They will overload you with patients and expect you work all the time. Patients suffer greatly because you are not allowed enough time to spend with them. The office environment is hostile if your not in their "click". They hire grossly unqualified nurses who absolutely do not need to be dealing with hospice patients. Very unprofessional. I would not let them take care of my worst enemy. Two words RUN AWAY!

    Advice to Management

    Get new management! From the bottom to the top. This management is the most incompetent unprofessional group of people I've ever worked for.

    Pros

    Patients - Benefits - That pretty much sums it up

    Cons

    Dont even get me started. Expectations are unrealistic if you want to have a life! See patients 8 hrs then go home and do charting - without pay - When voicing opinion - tough! This is the way it is and it doesnt need fixed. That's their attitude. I doubt the Dept of Labor would agree that you work all day go home and dont get paid the additional 8 hrs.

    Advice to Management

    Stop going by statistics! Our patients are people - not numbers! Give the staff time to do their jobs without sacrificing their home life.

    I have been working at Gentiva full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The clinical staff care about patients and each other. The PTO is good - if you can get it authorized.

    Cons

    Profits over patients and staff. The only way to make money in hospice is to cut services to patients - primarily through reduced staffing. Gentiva is well aware of that. Staff are assigned ridiculously large caseloads that compromise not only the quality of care but also result in situations that could easily compromise patient safety. No raises for years at a time and horrible mileage reimbursement only worsen morale.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees well and the quality of patient care will increase resulting in more referrals! REDUCE CASELOADS FOR ALL DISCIPLINES!

    I worked at Gentiva part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with my patients and the flexibility of scheduling my day to see them. I also enjoyed working with my coworkers

    Cons

    They need better healthcare benefits for their employees and they need to provide a benefits package to all employees that work full time hours instead of hiring PRN to work full time hours.

    Advice to Management

    As above.

    Pros

    Pay isn't horrible but you will work so many hours at home its becomes laughable at your real hourly rate. And its paid per visit

    Cons

    Management in consistent, High turn over rate, benefits are poor. High turn over rate. Inappropriate patients accepted to home health for numerous reasons. We are forced to rate them high at the eval/start of care, to make them look like they improved by discharge. Good nurses don't stay, well not any nurse stays long, good or bad. They tend to have a warm body with a pulse attitude about both nurses and patients. They are forever changing the rules to there needs, even if its not policy then when you feed back the info they give you, then they change there minds and say well that is just a suggestion of the branch not a policy. Very unsupportable and they have bullies in the office that will run you out and make you feel like your clinical judgement is not worth a dime. Current Management is all about the big bottom....line and all about PR and she is not a Clinician. They will also work you so hard you will have no family time and they don't care. They force feed BS down your throat and get upset when you spit it out and don't swallow it. Yes I can keep going on and on. Just beware and protect your license. Life just keeps getting better at this office from what I hear from the few friends that are left at that office. JUST BEWARE AND STAY AWAY!

    Advice to Management

    Support your clinicians, Listen to them and make them feel valued they have licenses and trained and certified for a reason. Don't treat them poor just because they challenge you be thankful they don't want to break medicare rules and keep you and themselves out of trouble. Audits come quick and fast. Listen to the ones that have been other places they cant all be wrong!
