I have been working at Amedisys full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Nice office staff, excellent clinicians

Cons

Mileage can easily go over 100 miles in a day. Fuel prices and vehicle maintenance take the shine out of the mileage paid. Job is actually 10% hands on patient care, 90% documentation. Work/life balance is near impossible especially if seeing patients in rural areas. Drive time and distance between patients makes productivity difficult. Spend hours at night charting away from family and management does not pay actual hours worked. Paid per visit only. I made more money as a new grad on a Med/Surg unit. End up working 60 hours per week, several holidays and paid near nothing to be "on-call" several days per month.

Advice to Management

Add more "hours" to recents and post hospital visits as many of these actually take 3 or more hours to complete. Make these type of top heavy visits worthwhile for clinicians. Give bonuses and incentives to employees to promote staff retention. Too much management, not enough clinicians willing to stay for such low pay.
