No opinion of CEO

I worked at Amedisys full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Some directors are understanding demands of job

Cons

New director with unrealistic expectations; did not respect difference in productivity numbers between psych and medical visits and threatened to reduce status to part-time if could not keep up the numbers; expected psych nurse to do upwards to 40 visits/week; told nurse she thought she was lying when car trouble was reported (very unprofessional) with no history of such behavior. Director did not conduct exit interview

Advice to Management

Please pay more attention to why long-term nurses leave company when management changes; require management to conduct exit interviews; tell directors they may not accuse employees of lying when they have legitimate car difficulty

    Good place to start, but you wouldn't want to stay there.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Patients. Learn CMS, Oasis assessment, Case Management, keep up on your skills.

    Cons

    You will be pressured to work long hours, and chart off the clock. No overtime allowed and all overtime has to be pre-approved (good luck with that!). You will NEVER have a predictable schedule, because if an admit comes in, you have to do it and your previous commitments to patients fly out the window. The most common complaint I get from patients is "you said the nurse would see me on X day" and that's often impossible, because yet another admission came up and you had to move your commitment to that patient to another day. Of course, you cant share this with patients, but the number one priority is Admits, Admits, Admits and patient care takes a back seat. This company is focused on profits, profits, profits. If anything goes wrong, its always the Case Managers fault. New RN hires I've spoken with are already biding their time and not planning to stay once they acquire some case management experience. This is a good place to learn Case Management, but not to stay.

    Advice to Management

    See above. Come up with realistic schedules and pay staff for the hours they actually work.

    Pros

    Pay is good for area

    Cons

    Extremely high turnover Horrible benefit plan (check the fine print too). History of not meeting agreement terms based on hiring contract . No loyalty or respect to employees. Promotion of friends rather than well-deserved individuals; hard-working individuals typically don't succeed due to the exposure they bring to the table. Every man for himself company.

    Advice to Management

    - "Want" to improve and see that there are issues. There seems to be no one caring. - Perform Exit Interviews to see WHY people are continuously leaving and react to those reasons.
