I have been working at Amedisys full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Pros

    The field staff is absolutely amazing. These are the kindest most amazing people to work with. One big family.

    Cons

    The office staff, the management are rude, hostile, disrespectful to others. Will make false accusations to get rid if someone or to place blame for their own actions. No one in the office understands the operations process, this office put more on the schedulers and does not allow overtime to allow for work to be done.

    Being called stupid on a daily basis. Has unrealistic expectations for employees. The ones who are suppose to run the office have no idea how to manage the office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house! Discharge your managers and start over. Managemt in this form is deadly. Managers should know who to manage their staff.
