Registered Nurse Case Manager | Rhode Island | Apr 29, 2019
Complete joke of a company
Started off here as an RN who had no home health or hospice experience. They say that they "train" you. If "training," consists of online modules for hours on end or webinars, that is the bulk of your training. When going out in the field, the "territory," I was placed in evolved over time. Could drive up to an hour one way to see a patient and one hour back to my home. Was not practical with end of life patients. Shadowing other nurses for weeks, they called this "training." One nurse told me she had too large of a caseload to actually train me, so I was just going to just watch her. Bottom line....STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!!! it isn't just lack of training that was my issue...it was long amounts of time spent in my car traveling throughout the day in various road conditions, frequent calls from the office/emails that needed answers on a daily basis, large caseloads, "territories" they "try" to keep you in, which doesn't apply because they will send you everywhere. I was actually transferred to another office closer to me in RI. This office, I encountered bullying/harassment from my immediate managers, having one of these "managers," go with me on a supervisory visit, even though he knew I needed additional training and decided to make a surprise visit at my facility and then proceed to insult my skills as a nurse and performance. I repeatedly was talked down to, by some members in management. I was not respected for being an RN and I had people from the office going to so

Hospice Nurse | Boston, MA | Jul 5, 2013
Don't go there
Like so many previous Amedisys, Beacon Hospice (Boston), employees before me I can say that my experience with this company was one of the worst I have ever experienced as a clinician. I was hired following the dispensation of 100% of their nursing staff. These talented RNs went on to work for other agencies in the Boston area. Committed to doing Hospice Nursing, I was so excited when they hired me on the spot, that I failed to do my homework on the company's history of dissatisfied employees, legal issues, poor management, and anemic patient census. When they hired me, I was the only full time RN. The director hired a per diem nurse, who turned out to be her sister. The relationship between the two women was not revealed to myself, or other employees, for months. I am a novice in hospice nursing. For my "training" I spent nearly 3 full weeks staring at a computer screen while I did module after module of their "on boarding". I was given NO preceptorship in the field. I was handed a nursing bag & a box of supplies for my trunk. The director assured me that if I had any questions I could call her for support. At least 85% of the time she was unavailable for that "phone support" she had promised. Often calling back long after I had left the patient for whom I had the question. After my first month of employment, there were many occasions when she failed to call back at all, although she would say "As you know, you are doing an awesome job!" She counseled me to stop co

Company has changed since PDGM
I have been a clinician with an Amedisys branch full time since 2015. I had previously worked for the same care center part time and loved the company so much I came back full time. Initially I loved my time and was happy with my transition. Our agency had just been rated a top 100 care center. As a agency, the care center has slipped to a home care elite and will undoubtedly lose of consecutive string of recognition this year. Recently the turnover rate has increased at the care center and morale is down which is reflective of both the culture in the care center and the change in company direction. Our director has publicly challenged clinician assessments without ever seeing the patient all in favor of down scoring Oasis, something I consider to be fraudulent, but our Oasis reviewers have always sided with the clinicians. These challenges are often done publicly with assessments being criticized on a care center wide email, again without ever observing the patient. Since PDGM our productivity scale has changed, and was still attainable, but now the company policy is 90% completion of the documentation done in the home. Considering the documentation takes approximately 20 minutes to complete for a standard physical therapy treatment, and we spend 5 to 10 minutes getting subjective information, vital signs, and assessment of current medical conditions, this leave little time for treatment. Under PDGM the goal is to reward quality of care, but without quality treatment this is

Registered Nurse | North Charleston, SC | Jul 20, 2022
A lot of work with little compensation
The opportunity to get to know your patient and really help them is there all day long. Most patients and families are so happy that you are there to help which is rewarding. Occasionally you get that patient that thinks they were ordered home health by their physician as punishment and they can take a little time to come around but I enjoy a challenge… The big problem with the work atmosphere at Amedisys is a very poor training program or shall I say lack there of. My training consisted of sitting in front of a computer completing so many training modules, then a short time talking to someone who basically takes care of payroll as well as many other things, a short visit with a PT, an OT, and the Social Worker. The following week (this would be the third or fourth week) I was assigned to do ride alongs with another RN who wasn’t even a permanent employee but a temporary nurse… I learned from her how to get into the computer (Samsung tablet) that visits are done on, how to complete an admission, a recertification, an evaluation,and a resumption of care. The things I was not trained on were very important omissions… To include how the pay worked with number of hours and number of visits. Mileage reimbursement. The fact that you have to manage your own non productive hours, and if you want to use PTO after it’s approved you have to add it to your time, as well as adding your time for on call ext. Basically it’s kinda like you’re self employed and you keep up with everything.

finally realizing how bad it was
I want this to be balanced but..... 1.The hours you work are long depending on the office you are in. Many hours charting are unpaid, the company claims it pays overtime is paid but the overtime is figured on some formula that results in overtime pay less than regular hourly pay 2. The company pays .42 cents per mile but only calculates the shortest miles, there is no way of knowing what route is actually the shortest distance without driving down closed or poorly maintained roads, so there is a constant difference between the miles reimbursed and the miles actually driven. In a rural areas the wear and tear on your personal vehicle can be a financial nightmare. I have driven on many dirt roads and had to replace ball joints on my 2 year old car and 2 wheel bearings on an SUV because of the driving conditions. 3. RNs are expected to take call on weekends with no days off during the week to compensate, leading to working 12-21 days in a row at times. 4. Drive time is not paid for. This means if the patient lives 75 miles away a clinician can spend 4-5 hours for 1 admission and make less than min wage. 5. In my area the RNs NEVER get raises on the Oasis rates per visit and are forced to give all regular visits to LPNs. (resulting in no raises in pay) 6.Everyone in the company is micromanaged to death. 7. The management is so focused on making their numbers they badger clinicians into admitting or keeping patients that are not appropriate although the company line is "never part

If there was anything good about this office, it wasn't meant for me
I came to this job with high expectations & the willingness to learn however, at the time of my employment the Office Director that was there at the time had her daughter (conflict of interest) which was a BOS too working in the same office (many field staff left too) while attending college b/c of her being there for a while she was supposed to train me for the same position. On a good day her & I interacted well however, I don't know what I did to her b/c a solid month later she stop speaking or training me & instead whenever she had to speak she would email me. I clearly was the one she didn't care for b/c, everybody else didn't get the same treatment. I apologized to her for in my mind maybe I offended her w/o knowing. When I noticed that b/c of her dislike towards me she was hindering from proper training I went to the manager of us & expressed my concern this conversation happened more than once with no change I went to her mom. Well that didn't go anywhere b/c, I was told that she was stressed b/c of school & made me feel like I was the one with the issue & sometimes you have to kiss a little butt (her words). Many days I left out of the office crying I never felt so belittled, degraded &, unworthy in my life from a job. I started to notice that mom started treating me different as well & there was a lot of whispering going on that got quite when I came around. I did what I was supposed to & brought it to my managers attention I should of took it to the next level but,

Worst place I ever worked for
Amedisys was an excellent company. Sadly, they have grown so much, and focus only on their success. Patients are nothing but a dollar sign. So many of their agencies are poorly managed. Corporate management not really aware, or not caring at all. I worked for this company for about 3 years at different locations as a therapist, so I can attest to this. The agency directors were only focused on visits and productivity, so they could get their big bonuses, and the clinical managers were lazy and useless. I saw many unethical and unprofessional behaviors while working here, including medicare and insurance fraud. Employees were treated awful, and they worked you to death. I normally had 13-17 visits on my schedule, and was expected to complete them all on a daily basis. (we know that is impossible). After working for this company for almost 2 years, I was hospitalized for physical exhaustion. At the time, my husband was unemployed, so I toughed it out. They show no concern for your family, or your situations. My rehab managers were lazy, and you could never count on them to assist you in any way, and you could not trust anything that came out of their mouths. I transferred to another location, and it was even worst. I remember one time, I was discussing a patient's homebound status with a clinical manager, and she told me that what patients did was not any of my business, and to act as if the pt was homebound. I was scolded by my managers for discharging patients who had met the

poor family life
Computer system out of date, with computers that are older than myself. Assignments would average 7/8 a day and drive time would be as much as 6 hours also. The hours worked in the day were very unpredictable, but management didn't care. Just no missed visits. Unable to make reasonable money for the wear and tear on the vehicle, time spent in office with IT, and driving an hour from one patient to another. When management notified of inability to see all on schedule, response was, "it's got to be done, figure it out." Although it was hard to find anyone in the office before 8am or after 4:50pm. Respect for the people in the field was not present. I could not believe when they stated confusion on why there is a huge turnover rate. On top of spending hours in the field, it is also required that the clinician log on at certain times of day to complete conference call, and training. This in not reasonable. These sessions should be recorded and available for staff to compete when they have the time. Especially those who are only per-diem and work at other facilities. This is just another example of a fail on the upper management team and how they do not take into consideration time management for their field personal. Flexibility is not present at all, which was how the job was originally sold to me. I guess it was my misunderstanding, I was the one who was required to be extremely flexible to meet their needs. I gave the company more stars for job retention due to the fact

Vice President of Operations | Central, LA | Feb 4, 2019
Working more than 50 hours a week is an expectation.
I began with Amedisys as a field nurse, was shortly promoted to clinical manager, then to director of operations, finally to area vice president of operations. I had a wonderful experience throughout my tenure with Amedisys until I reached the final level of area Vice President. At that point politics surrounded me, and shortly thereafter I was terminated. I won countless awards with Amedidys, and was considered a wonderful employee. I did everything I was asked to do such as covered multiple agencies that didn’t have a director, I took on multiple projects, I even developed a new system. Once I reached the AVP level, I found the upper management To be crooked. Eight years of a wonderful career, with a flawless HR record, and it ended so abruptly. I worked so hard for this company, and gave the most honest work I’ve ever given, all to have It swept out from under me without them even batting an eye. No concern as to how my family and I would survive. They denied all unemployment payment after my termination, which to me, as a clear indicator of how much they appreciated the work I did. I gave up so much personally for this company, and then it was my personal life that suffered through and through both during and after my employment with Amedisys. My career was swept out from under me without them even batting an eye as to how me and my family would survive. My termination was a slap in the face, and I am here to tell you that upper management is not to be trusted. How

Physical Therapist | Lexington, KY | Oct 11, 2018
Cut-throat and extremely stressful. They care nothing about your work-life balance.
This is the worst company I have ever worked for. They lie to you on a daily basis. First they will tell you that you will see at least 7 patients a day when hired. Reality is you only see 4-5 on average and literally fight everyone else who wants to take the visits away from you. If you consult with a manager, they will most likely yell at you for the complaint, then turn right around and ask you why you didnt meet productivity. Bottom line is, they may cut you to 3 visits on one day, then expect you to see 12 visits the next day. At the end of an 8+ hour day, you have to get home and CHART for another two to three hours. Then they require you to complete computer based training every quarter totaling another 20+ hours away from family time, or you cant work at all. Plus you do it for roughly half the regular wages. So... There is no work life balance at all. Its all about them, not the employee. They dont pay you for your trip to your first patient or your drive home, even if the last patient is an hour from home. The mileage is roughly 10+ cents less than the national average, and they will tell you to deduct the other 10+ cents on you taxes. Not that easy, unless you write down every single mile in detail for the entire year for the IRS.
ProsIt's a paycheck if you cant get a job at McDonald's or Walmart!
ConsStress, never knowing what work you will or won't have from day-to-day, buried alive in unpaid paperwork, communication is horrible at best, never paid for all of your work or mileage, the insurance gets worse every year, the board forced it's founder and Original CEO Bill Bourne, (The greatest boss and inspiration in my lifetime), out the door for being good to the real-life everyday worker's!!

You don't want to work here. Upper management is some of the worst I've ever come across. Work until you drop seems to be the philosophy. Amedisys doesn't care about patients; they care about numbers of patients and money.

What benefits does Amedisys offer?
Asked Jul 5, 2016
For a billion dollar company, you'd think the insurance would be better. But it's HORRENDOUSLY expensive, and doesn't cover much of anything. You have the out of pocket cost up front from your paycheck, then you still pay for medical care, because the insurance doesn't pay.
Answered Jul 4, 2020
They offer insurance and PTO you can’t take more then a week off at a time. They are not flexible with much and like to micromanage the oasis reviewers and coders- they use Skype and are alerted if your keyboard is idle for 15 minutes. Horrible feeling of constantly being watched.
