I worked at Amedisys full-time

Pros

It's a job. You can drive around in your car. It feels good to help patients

Cons

An example. At an inservice for the Palliative Care team, we were told that they would "...never be able to earn our salary... Our job was to "funnel" palliative care patients into hospice where the big money was. I watched in horror as the speaker drew a diagram with arrows respresenting my patients funnelled into hospice. The only thing I could think of was cattle being funnelled for slaughter. I thought that my job was to alieve pain for those with life threatening illnesses. I had hopes that they would survive.If my patients had a serious diagnosis, but I was able to make them comfortable we were told to "...check in every month or two..." then we can get them into Hospice. I was horrified and disgusted. As a clinician I could no longer ethically work for this company.

    I have been working at Amedisys full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Big company that pulls in patient volumes with aggressive marketing.

    Cons

    This company is mired in a top-down management style that is packed with uncaring robots in middle management. Middle management spends much of its time behind closed doors receiving the latest marching orders and then emerges with the priority of PROTECTING THEIR OWN BACK to announce the latest dictates passed down from the clouds. Offering suggestions is quickly crushed as management stomps down anything that might make them look poorly to those viewing from above...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The TOP TIER OF MANGEMENT NEEDS to add Sam Walton to their esteemed reading library and try to discover what is happening at the field staff level without the filter of middle management white washing.
