    I have been working at Amedisys full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, great co-workers.

    Cons

    Unrealistic work expectations from management, we are expected to see up to 8 pts in an 8 hour work day without overtime. We also are expected to see pts that are just outside our territory and actually in the territory of our sister office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put some scrubs on and take our schedule for a week, do it with a smile, no overtime and dont forget to dot all your I's and cross all your T's.

    I have been working at Amedisys full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is plenty of room for advancement.
    DOO and other clinicians are great to work with.
    Several options available to make extra money:)

    Cons

    Call consists of having a full scheduled and being on call....not fesible
    Friendship triumphs hard work and dedication
    Health Insurance is expensive!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes experience should overcome education.
    Increase mileage rates, gas is getting too expensive!
    Increase pay per visit rate for LPN's and RN's(esp for starts, recerts and PH).
    If Honda Employees can pay $10/wk for family health insurance with 10/ded. I think Amedisys can do better than the insurance that we have now.
