I have been working at Visiting Nurse Service of New York

Pros

I love the autonomy, flexible hours, and computerized charting. I stay busy, sometimes too busy, but it makes time go by fast.

Cons

There is a lot of turnover in home care, especially in management. It makes it difficult to know who to go to when you have a problem. The caseloads are outrageous sometimes which makes effective case management nearly impossible. When this is brought to management attention we are told 'people are working on it' or 'you need to prioritize better'. These statements are neither helpful nor encouraging.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please realize your employees are here to do a job and do it well. This is impossible without a strong in -office support system.

    Pros

    occasional free ice cream, or other free kinds of foods, most of the time they are trying to get you to buy something in order to participate in giving to the poor

    Cons

    Micromanagement, ridiculous orientation that lasts 6 months, no benefits until 6 months or a year. Pay every 2 weeks and hold back a pay period. Treaters climate and expected to excel in those conditions. Management thinks its all ”the clinitians fault” Skilled care is counted as just a Clinton even though you do all the work. Paperwork has to be turned in before 9p each day even if you did 2 start of cares, drove all over kingdom kong, went through a bunch of hoops to get there and had 3 labs to top it off. Computer system is really horrible, very tedious, not user friendly for a Clinton who has to juggle their demands. Emails are galore and consume hours out of your day. Most of it could be handled by the manager who sits at a desk auditing charts, seems they should have an auditor to do that and management should help the Clintons in the field. Pay is below average just so so. Hours are beyond a normal day. They pride themselves on JAHCO but really they just shift things to make the Clinton suffer in order to be certified. Horrible agency.
