Pros

Pay, benefits, Gentiva University, great co-workers

Cons

Overwhelming patient load quite often, you will be asked to document things that you didn't do by case managers to cover their tails, low mileage reimbursement, A LOT of after hours charting that you are not able to get completed in the home. Heavy census load, unrealistic expectations, seeing 10 - 14 units per day! Money is good for when you see the patient but if you do the job the right way, there is no way to get in and out of a patients home in 30 minutes and get all of your charting completed, realistically it will be closer to 45 minutes to an hour and then you have to add drive time in between that and pray that you didn't have to call the doctor and wait on him/her to call you back. Not every patient is 1-2 miles apart so you may spend another 15-30 minutes driving between some of your patients. You don't get paid for charting once you are home in the evenings. You also shouldn't be having to hurry up your visits because you are so full of patients for the day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Home charting time should be paid at least at a base level to compensate or extend the visit to extended visit rate. Therapists are not nurses and shouldn't have to be placed in a position where they are offering or trying to give nursing information.

    Pros

    able to still provide some comfort to those at the end of their life

    Cons

    census driven,large case load,no raises,discouraged to use crisis care,no overtime, forced to work on call and then have to take those hours off of your regular schedule during the week(less patient care) morale in office low, nursing forced to spend time "blitzing"when they need to be focusing on better patient/family relationships, the sense that we are continually asked to do more with less and for less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    really stop on in to any branch and ask the grunts on the ground what it takes to build good customer relationship and how we win the "repeat" customer!
