    I have been working at Visiting Nurse Association Omaha full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    good culture, feels like community. sense of purpose with work to reach out and be the best at providing wide range of home care services often to those on the marginal end. management tries hard to provide reasonable compensation but struggle due to non profit status

    Cons

    no benefits for continuing education. work tends to eclipse rest of life. hard to make clean break from work it always follows you.

    Ability to be out in the field, make up your own schedule, flexibilty, and working independently.

    Sometimes the driving for oneday could be over 100 miles a day, or the plan of care is notvery clear so the visit is a total loss withoutthe proper documentation, amd god communication .

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to have the last person who visits update the chart with what was completed on plan of care amd what still needs done.

    Pros

    Good benefits, you will find a location near you, several employment opportunities available all the time.

    Cons

    Poor organizational skills, for some positions the pay is low, management can be unrealistic sometimes

    Advice to Management

    Definitely this company would benefit from several courses or education about costumer service. Also the clinic is understaffed all the time, we need more staff for several departments. A little bit more of fresh ideas among the VP's will be great.


  6. If you are looking for micromanagement and spending all your time working then this is the place

    Pros

    free ice cream on occasion

    Cons

    micromanagement, long, drawn out, over done and ridiculous orientation. Depends on who your manager is. Terrible computer system. Timed charting. No independance. Home health is not supposed to be micromanaged, they are overly insisting the clinitions attend stupid inservices over and over. Pretty much a 12-14 hour day.

    Advice to Management

    Assist with lab values, notifying MD’s, notifying patients, finding ways to help the clinition instead of spending the whole day chatting and auditing charts staring at the computer into space. Jump in and assist with daily needs, allow some freedom of the RN taking care of the patients, don’t sit and micromanage the whole day. Give some room to people, don’t be so stuffy.

    Pros

    Excellent work-life balance. Free coffee on-site Wellness program In-Service CEU training Good compensation Understanding management

    Cons

    Some departments aren't structured enough, meaning some of them could use an overall manager. Not much room for non-clinical staff to be promoted/smaller company. Benefits are more expensive than most.

    Advice to Management

    Promote better communication/communication styles which are professional-sounding. Promote completing work within work hours.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, dedicated employees who work hard despite a lack of respect and input from managers.

    Cons

    Horrible management. Managers would insult patients and employees behind their backs; President of company prefers to hide in her office rather than address employee favoritism and morale issues; marginal HR department.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees and address real problems in employee favoritism, teach your managers how to manage employees.
