All the people that come out to my house from National Homecare are attentive, well-mannered and nice. They always call before they come. I am unable to get items from the store and sometimes my nurse and therapist will help me by picking up things for me. Even when I am too lazy to do my exercises, they remind me how important the exercises are to my health, so I am encouraged to do them. My only complaint is that sometimes there are problems getting messages to my nurse when I call the office.

I have never seen a worst place to work at or receive services from. Employees do not get paid here, and when you kindly ask for your pay check - YOU GET FIRED. I can not believe that the Director of Nurses told a nurse, "I can't believe you are upset about a paycheck!" I strongly advise that if you are a nurse - DO NOT GO TO WORK FOR THIS COMPANY. THEY WILL NOT PAY YOU YOUR INITIAL CHECK FOR OVER A MONTH. In addition, every subsequent paycheck will be delayed for weeks at a time. I do not know how they can continue to operate under these terms. I do not know how they are allowed to continue to hire people and not pay them. Finally, they pay per visit. What that equates too is this - as their census drops - YOU DO NOT GET PAID. If the patients are not home and you can not see them, then YOU DO NOT GET PAID. In addition, the DON is so desperate to increase her census that she has been noted telling her staff not to discharge patients - even the ones that no longer need or require services. This place is completely unethical and do not care about it's employees or patients.

My name is Mel Whitworth and I am the owner of National Homecare Services. I am sorry that Rochelle G had a negative experience as an employee of National. I am writing this in response to her comments. First, we are a Company that values our patients and our employees. We put patient care as our top priority. We provide loving and compassionate care to our patients and their families. Our Vision Statement is "Bringing Excellent Healthcare to Your Home". Our goal is to make every patient and every employee a valued person. Secondly, every employee we have receives 100% of their pay and we have never failed to pay any employee at any time everything that we owed to them. If we failed to pay our employees and pay them timely, I would expect us to have many negative comments from current or former employees. Our heart is to provide a positive and encouraging workplace for all of our employees. We are unashamedly a Christian Company who strives to do everything we can to honor God in all that we do. We are not a perfect Company but we do our very best to provide for the needs of our patients and their families and provide an encouraging workplace environment.

This company is unreliable. They will not get you the supplies you need. There has been two separate occasions where I need supplies for my wound care and they dropped the ball both times. There was always an excuse as to why they never had the supplies I needed. DO NOT use this company as your home health agency.
