    I worked at Amedisys full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with the patients in their homes.

    Cons

    Management never keeps their word. Corporate greediness. I worked for my money, then I had to fight for it each payday. Never out on time because of late admits. fight for time off that you have already earned.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your word to your employees, we come to work pay us without the hassles. you wouldn't like it if we didn't do what we promised.

    I have been working at Amedisys full-time

    Pros

    The patients are wonderful and are truly happy to see you. Some become extended family due to frequent flyer status or long term patient status.

    Cons

    Unrealistic schedules. Unrealistic productivity expectations per week. Scheduled to see patients not in your zone. When you are expected to see one patient out in boon docks then drive 45 + minutes to next patient when another nurse is in that area. Locked minimum time requirement when a long term patient does not need 30 minutes to discuss diabetes that they've had for 40 years and can recite verbatim what they need to do and they are well controlled. Field nurses are over ruled by office staff, who have no clue about the patient, on discharges needed or non admits because they want to keep the patient on the books to make their numbers look good. The new computers/tablets were not designed by nurses for nurses but some geek programmer who has no idea about medical documentation. Information in one area does not carry over to the next when the same question is asked. Meetings that last 1-3 hours that do not accomplish anything or that could have been covered in a email. The training is not sufficient for new hires and then they send them out to a full schedule or overscheduled with 8-12, sometimes 15 patients and expected to get it all done in 8 hours. This action makes the patient quality of care suffer because we are expected to see X amount regardless of situations or emergency care of the patient. Being penalized because you can't see a patient who is in the hospital, admitted to hospice, or refuses care at the door once you arrive to the home after patient agrees to be seen. Keeping non homebound patients on the books after numerous documented notes of chasing them to pad their numbers. They can't keep staff in the field due to all of the above. Burn out is a high risk! Nurse turn over is one week to three months once they are in the field. If you voice complaints, or concerns you are disrespected, written up or terminated. I've seen awesome nurses terminated because they rocked the boat on how the field nurses are treated or if they refuse to see a non emergent patient because it would be the 12th one that day.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the field nurses! We are the ones in the trenches.

    I worked at Amedisys full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Independent work in the field. Most field workers are ethical and honest and pay is decent. Benefits are decent with good support from Human Resources.

    Cons

    Moultrie branch DOO is highly unethical, not appropriate for leadership position and has caused company to loose multiple great employees. Keeps unnecessary drama going on between employees and gives little support to team when problems arise. Team moral is horrible due to DOO, employees are unhappy!!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Get feedback from your office and field staff regarding management in Moultrie office. DOO is NOT a leader and cares only about $ signs. Asks employees to to perform unethical and unlawful duties rather than focusing on PATIENT CARE!
