Mission: Our family, your family, ONE FAMILY. Committed to loving, giving and caring. United in making a difference.
I worked at PruittHealth full-time (More than a year)
Mr. Pruitt and his corporate leadership team implement more contests, activities, etc. for employees to boost morale and satisfaction than any company I've seen. They don't have to do it. They want to! If you want to be the best, you have to give your best! What other CEO would form a full committee to review company CNA uniforms to find the most durable, breathable and comfortable ones? I'll tell you who: The CEO that goes in like an average Joe and gets to know each employee, and asks them what he can do better to make their work life better! Mr. Neil Pruitt! Now THAT is class. Pruitt Hospice really does end up feeling like an extended family. There will be tension and disagreements, as with any family, but at the end of the day: the PruittHealth Hospice family will be there. They are also the highest paying home care organization in this area. The benefits are fine and management is very understanding of any personal/family matters that need to be taken care of. Flexible hours and a strong support system (Consultants, AVP, etc) always available if an issue arises. Pruitt strives for excellence... that's why they hire the best, pay the best, offer flexibility in scheduling, and they expect it in return. You get what you give. After all, we are all there for one reason: to be sure that every patient receives optimal service every time. Do the right thing because it's the right thing to do.
On-Call for Hospice can quickly cause burnout
Mileage is not competitive compared with current market
Benefits after 90 days; current market has some employers that offer benefits on the 1st day of the job, some after 30 days. Use your own phone with poor "reimbursement" allowances.
Advice to Management
Review mileage and on-call reimbursement cuts that were made... see if there's some room for compromise. All of your HH and Hospice employees, especially in the more rural areas, should have a company provided cell phone. Picture this:
What if Jane Doe, CNA is driving down a backroad when her tire blows out one afternoon. She's not injured. The DHS is at the pt's residence, waiting on Jane so she can do an evaluation. She gets out her personal phone to let her DHS know what's happened and she can't call her. She had to pay for her son's medical care and didn't have the money for her cell phone bill. She thought it would be okay until next week but now it's off. She's on a country road with no establishment nearby and it's already getting dark. Anyone driving on company business, other than an office employee running an errand or two and going back to the office, should be provided a company phone. It's practical, it's safe, it's smart. If I'm only being reimbursed for 25% of my cell phone bill, how do I determine when I will and will not do business on my phone to equal 25% usage.
Establish a system where employees can submit suggestions for improvement to a designated person, where the idea is then reviewed and the employee receives feedback. There was a suggestion box that sat on a table and collected so much dust.... it had suggestions when I left that I know were there 6 months prior.
Other than these things, Pruitt was and will always be my family. People on this board referring to nepotism, micromanagement, etc should be very aware of practices at similar businesses. It's easy to point a finger; but remember when you do, there's always 3 more pointing back at you.
I applied online. I interviewed at PruittHealth (Raleigh, NC) in July 2017.
The interview was easy and quick. The DON interviewed me. She asked about weekend availability and what me career goals were. I was also asked about experience and when I could begin. What else do you want from me.
