Overall Reviews at Aveanna Healthcare in Daytona Beach, FL
Great place to work, helpful and friendly place.
Typical day at work consisted of vitals and over all assessment, Assisting with ADL's, Medication pass with pain management procedures. Also dealing with any and all emergencies that may happen during the night.
Was first job after I received my RN license. I've learned so much from everyone I came in to contact with. Management would answer any questions that I could think of. The were always willing to help and work with me any way possible.
My co-workers were wonderful also, any question I would have they would try to answer. If i was uncertain about a procedure, the would walk me through it.
The hardest part of my job was the long nights. It gets difficult trying to stay awake when everyone is sleeping.
The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing my pt.s smiling face. It made me happy to know i was making a difference in someones life
This is a for profit Oasis Medicare Company, that uses few FT RNs and too many unqualified LPNs to manage patient care. Assessment visits were poorly done by most of the LPN staff and in some case RN staff. I found patients with no documentation of serious illness and symptomatic of those illness. My work for this company was PRN and mostly supervisor visited as dictated by CMS Guidelines
More than one family/ care giver would complain about the poor assessment skills and ill defined care that was given.
Team management would change more often than I change my socks. Higher management was rude and unapproachable,
I have documented and intend filing a complaint to CMS.
Consas above noted
Fun place to work, its the families not the Company you have to worry about
I love working for PSA. However, its the families you have to worry about it. Some families are absolutely amazing, while others use your kindness to take advantage of you. And when you stand up for yourself, they treat you like garbage.
The only advice I can give, is always keep a smile, however, remember you are there for the patient not the parents. And their problems are not yours. Don't let yourself get caught up taking care of them and forgetting yourself in the process.
Conspay could be more, insurance not that great.
Seems like a good place by and large. But low pay scale for RNs
As I have not been working there for very long, only since March of 2017, I do not feel very qualified to make a detailed, credible evaluation of this company. The management is very friendly, and is tryingto be accomidating. Provided an indepth orientation inservice, and they have many factors in place to provide for safe, competant care of their clients.
ProsI like many things about my current assignment
Conslower pay scale than I'm used to
I worked for PSA as a Home Health RN
As an RN i was paid LPN low wages and worked 12 hr night shifts. After a year, I was promised days but it never happened. The day shift nurses were frequently late but you don't get paid OT and there were no benefits. Management was not very supportive.
Since then Avena has taken over so hopefully they are better.
ProsGreat working with medically fragile children.
ConsLow pay, 12 hr shifts, mostly night work, no OT
Great Place to work
I learn how to assist clients who suffer with memory loss. I loved my clients who I worked for and the staff at the agency. The hardest part of my job was when I could no longer work there, due to the conflict with my school schedule. The staff there did a great job with placing their clients with the right staff.
ProsWork with the same clients
ConsNo Night time shifts
demanding management, no support
Avoid this company. Working here was nice until the company was sold & then it became more about how much money you can bring in. Plus you get to enjoy being on-call to drive around skid row in the middle of the night, no street lights, no house numbers or lights. Fun times running out of gloves and buying my own at Walgreens. AVOID
My workday is spent with a 3 year old. Needs to be monitored closely for respiratory problems. Needs Ventilator at times. We play with puzzles, play doh, beads, read books, color, play outside, go to preschool. Mealtime is fun learning about new foods,
ProsLove working with the children
ConsHours are long, family dinamics are challenging at times
Competent clinical manager and office scheduing coordinator.
This was a good job to bridge me through while I was taking care of my elderly mother. The pay isn't good, but a pleasant place to work. The scheduling coordinator makes every effort to place you with families you are comfortable with.
ConsLow pay, no benefits
Flexible work schedule is great !
Love going to school with a disabled child. My schedule is great. Off weekends plus holidays. No stress at work. Love being a pediatric nurse for Disability children !
ConsDon’t work no pay. Limited cases in my area where I live. Health insurance isn’t the best.
