I have been working at Nightingale Home Healthcare

Pros

Choice of cases to take on, not a typical healthcarea job, personally rewarding in helping clients

Cons

As a home health aide you have four differnet pay rates and it flucuates based on the care you provide which is choose by scheduling personnel, and needs of client, medicare and medicaid, private pay. Benefit waiting period too long- you must wait 180 days and it is based on a 40 hour work week, it is up to you to make sure you get 40 hours and it is hard to do because some cases are two hours here, four there. Pay includes miliage which you have to keep track of. You must use your own car.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It would be best if you could hire and pay based on experience, too many pay rates to keep track of. Maybe you could have a meet and greet among employees so that they could switich assignments instead of having call offs

    Pros

    There are no pros to this place. Unless you're one of the few that gets paid reasonably well (which all of those employees have since quit) there ARE NO PROS to working at Nightingale. Employees are over-worked, constantly reminded that they are "overhead" and are "costing the owner money". Regular staff meetings are called just so the owner can degrade the employees. A recent program was created where employees of the week are picked in order to raise moral. The 2nd week, an employee that was on vacation the entire week was picked. No matter what you do, it's never enough. The employees that ALREADY work 20+ hours/week overtime are told constantly they must find an "extra five minutes" so they can get more work done throughout the day.

    Cons

    There is only one person that makes decisions here at Nightingale. Pretty much everyone gets a "manager" title. There ARE NO MANAGERS here. My supervisor threw me under the bus every chance he got so he could keep his own job. I've been a manager for over 10 years while my supervisor has never had an corporate position his entire life. Raises are close to nothing, IF you even get one. There is no such thing as a "good job" at Nightingale. The owner puts policies in place, like no eating at your desk (fine) but is 15 minutes late to a mandatory staff meeting that he called and ate his nasty, curry chicken the entire time. That's not only unprofessional, it's arrogant, rude, and just plain disgusting. Not to mention, he hires skinny blondes so he can cheat on his wife. Then when he brings his personal problems into the office and people start talking, he fires them. The owner of this place is a devil, literally. If you appreciate life and want to enjoy work and life in general, do not apply to Nightingale. You have no idea day-to-day whether or not you're going to have a job the next day. He tracks your every movement, then eventually makes you complete daily activity reports that you send to him daily. He'll NEVER respond to your reports, but when he's ready to go buy a new car for one of his mistresses, he'll make up a reason to fire you. You're report is all he needs to say you were 1 minute off from where you said you were. And if he feels like he needs another excuse, he'll tell you everyone in the office has reported that you have a negative attitude. His primary goal is for everyone in the office to hate each other and not talk at all, EVER. The owner is degrading, disgraceful, rude, mean, arrogant, a liar, and just overall a POS. I cannot say enough, IF YOU ENJOY LIFE, DO NOT APPLY HERE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is nothing that is going to change the way the owner conducts business. He is going to go about his daily, disgraceful life continuing to abuse people. In the end, these type of people are unsuccessful in every aspect of life. The owner of Nightingale is no different. He will fail, ultimately. His company will fail. He'll lose everything he's got and have no friends or family to turn to. And that's exactly how people like him should end up. Oh and the owner apparently tried to sue Glassdoor.com because he didn't like all the negative comments about him & his company. He doesn't believe there is such thing as freedom of speech. He tries to sue people for everything. Maybe he should stop his erroneous attempts of suing people and concentrate on paying off all the sexual harassment lawsuits he has settled.
