    Pros

    Excellent orientation for new employees. The tablet used for documenting on is fast and reliable. Team work and communication within the group.

    Cons

    As with any home health you will have to be on call at times. The calls are triaged so you only get called if a visit is needed.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to talk to employees. Great team.

    Pros

    Truly a unique workplace and environment, great people to work with, growth opportunities available.

    Cons

    The opportunity to grow knowledge and technology was viable under past leadership, but new direction and ideas has eliminated technology. Information management has overruled the environment, therefore technology lacks. This directly impacts the field clinicians and ultimately the patients. Knowing you aren’t helping any longer makes it difficult to strive for success, and the leaders aren’t committing to making the change back to a technology driven solution.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your core employees and enable their potential to pave the way for growth.

    I worked at Amedisys full-time

    Pros

    very good workmates .good communication between different disciplines . excellent training on computer charting. a family type feeling with other field staff.

    Cons

    a lot of gossiping between office staff. a lot of changes to daily assignments made it hard to plan your day or call patients and set visit times.territories divided between staff. would still have times when two nurses in area overlapping.

    Advice to Management

    make surprise visits to office to see how time was wasted and it seemed like a playground. DON had her favorites and it showed in the scheduling. forced to work overtime and nights spent doing uncompensated charting.

    I have been working at Amedisys full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are lots of perks working for this organization, including its great reputation in the community, awesome colleagues and a highly competitive salary.

    Cons

    Paid time off is one of the most important things I look for in a job. I think this company has average or above average paid time off but it was less than what I was hoping for.

    Advice to Management

    So far, my experience with the company is that things are run very smoothly. My suggestion is to keep doing what you are doing. The investment in staff development, training, and job shadowing is above and beyond any company I have worked for before.

    I have been working at Amedisys (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amedisys has a long-standing reputation of being a leading home health and hospice provider across the US. I joined this organization because they are serious about being innovative in providing the highest quality patient care. I am very impressed with all of the employees. This company has heart and compassion. It is apparent the moment you meet the clinicians as well as the executives. I joined the organization this year and I am thrilled with my decision.

    Cons

    No organization is perfect. What impresses me about Amedisys is that any suggestions for improvement and streamlining processes are welcomed and taken seriously. Not all problems can be solved over night but they are making great strides toward continuous improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate with employees across the organization and let them know how critical each person's role is to the entire organization. You are on the right track so keep doing what you're doing!
