Look for a new job, everybody else is!
I am a former employee and I am soooo glad I got out. Your leader is the most incompetent person when it comes to the world of DME that I have ever come across. Pure cluelessness. Sorry BOD, but it takes more than an ex-indited hospital admin to run DME as lean as it must be based on current reimbursement rates.

Grumble Re: CardioSom

For all of you people cursing up a storm and talking trash, you sound like 12 year olds! It's that type of maturity, or lack there of, that causes businesses to fail. MOVE ON!!! It was a JOB! Now it's over! MOVE ON!!! Go do something with your life now! Like, find another job! and if you already have one then BE THANKFUL!!!

Yes! CardioSom has seen it's better days and YES they could have done things much better to build a successful company. BUT...they did not.

Being bitter at this point is POINTLESS.

As far as LINCARE, they had the right to explore their possible investment in CardioSom if they were going to buy in or take over business. After they did their due diligence they saw that they could easily take over CardioSom's business without spending a red cent. That is smart business. Smart business that allows them to stay in business themselves. NO DME is REALLY buying any other DMEs right now. That would be foolish.

I used to work for CardioSom. I saw the writing on the wall. I left. I consider myself smart and lucky.

Good Luck to all of you caught in this whole mess. To those bitter people, seek some professional counseling or something. Pathetic!

I think it is very natural for the employees of Cardiosom to be angry. They are facing a major loss in their lives, and going through a grieving process, and anger is part of the grieving of their loss. They just need to make sure and turn that anger energy in to being productive and not getting stuck in a rut of self pity and anger. Keep moving forward. This too shall pass. I am a former employee also, and I understand the anger and disappointment, but you have to move forward.
Best regards to you all!

My husband had two oxygen services in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in the past 2 1/2 years, before he passed away from lung cancer last month.

The first one was awful--old, dirty cylinders, no concentrators, slow delivery, wrong connectors and tubes, etc.

Cardiosom was our oxygen supplier for the last year, and they were very good. They supplied all the equipment we needed (concentrators) within hours, and they provided supplies by UPS next-day service. The equipment was clean, it was exactly what was needed, and the staff took the time to teach us how to use it properly.

We would recommend Cardiosom over any of the alternatives in our area.

I can tell you that obviously Lincare pulled out of the acquisition at the last minute. Right now Cardiosom hasnt puchased equipment for over 2 months and are surviving by their recurring rental revenue. Their banks wont loan anymore money and last I heard American Home Patient just backed out and odds are the Scooter Store wont make the purchase. This company has been going down hill pretty fast and Lincare really helped the process. If I were an employee here I would RUN very fast and never look back.

I am sorry for your loss.

I have no doubt that you received excellent service from your local CardioSom branch.

The problem with this company was never at the branch level. The people in the branches are the backbone of the company...the ones who do all of the work.

The problem with this company was and always will be the way it has been managed.

The problems are branch level too! When you have Branch managers not doing their job, it directly correlates to how bad the company is doing. The incompetent people higher up put incompetent people to manage the branch. It's sad that the other employees were who had to suffer. Those in the branches BESIDES managers were who tried to keep the company afloat-they were the ones who cared about their job!

Banghead Re: CardioSom

The dire position this company is in is not because of 1 area! No sales growth, crappy marketing, no documents to bill, some branches and marketing, shady billing, corporate management, horrible business decisions and the vice presidents are a joke! I wish I made their money to sit around and do nothing, if they even come into work... Patient care is a top priority, but the business side of the company is sketchy at best. The major problem is no one seems to care about how to stay afloat except some on the business side of the business. It is hard to get anything to bill, maybe on the conservative side of how we should operate, but nonetheless, it is difficult to get everything, some at corporate, feel we need to bill. I have worked for other companies and have never needed to get as much paperwork to bill. I guess Cardiosom can at least tip their hats to that! Why try and stay afloat when you can have everything sit on a Hold report! We do our best and patients need and benefit from our services. Communication is crappy as well! All I ever see are emails that have spreadsheets about who knows what...Corporate, or at least my confirmation specialist, seems to know everything going on way before it is 'communicated'.

I really hope some of the management and people who actually do the work and take care of patients land on their feet!

For the rest of you losers, I hope you end up unemployed because your next company won't put up with your crap!

The previous post was spot on! All the Area VPs did was bean count - and act as a go-between.

Face it - when you have Area VPs coming and going (we had 3 different people in less than 2 years) - and one of them was a used car salesman - well, there you go!

Default Re: CardioSom

where to begin?? I worked for Cardiosom for 3 years. I was proud to say that I worked for Cardiosom. Will we ever know the true story? Doubtful. I think their were some bad business decisions that spiraled out of control. The one thing that has irritated me the most is the non-compete situation for the Branch Mangers and Account Managers. Other employees have the right to leave a sinking ship but these people don't have a choice unless they want to constantly look over their shoulders. Management tells them that they will think about severing their non competes. How fair is that to people that have went over and above to do their jobs? This is something that Management does have control over. It's called a delete button and a shredding machine. Have some balls and do the right thing. Now all Acct Mgrs have been fired with one week severance pay and no payout on their vacation. But still the non competes hang over their heads even though they were released from their positions and Management tells them they will TRY to release them from their non competes. Boy, was I naive. I really did think that the company and VP cared about me. I won't make that mistake again. But wait, yes I will because I'm that kind of team player. Good luck everyone and I will miss the relationships I built with other employees and patients.

Uh, come on people! CardioSom doesn't have the money to fight you in a court battle or legal case as far as the non-compete clause goes. GO GET YOURSELF A JOB will ya! THINK!!!! As far as everyone else hanging on.... RUN!!! And read your state's non-compete laws. CardioSom didn't do their homework when they wrote that clause in your contract. And there is no such thing as "competition" when they are really not in business!!! SO........stop being scared of CardioSom!!! YOU NO LONGER WORK FOR THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GO FEED YOUR FAMILY!!!!

So here we are pondering the future...........well lets' look at the past.

LIVE, LOVE and LOVE again.....this too will be history and I wish all the best.

A word of advice to all soon to be former Cardiosom employees. RUN from the respiratory arena. This is a dying arena, get into something else. Try infusion, home health, something that is being reimbursed and has a future. If you haven't learned yet that this is not just something that is happening at Cardiosom, but Respiratory all over; you will find yourself in the same situation again.

Or you can go get a job at the only companies that will be left in the next few years, Lincare or Apria. Those are your choices!

Take this oppourtunity to build something. Why rely on others? If this experience did one thing it should have let you know you... yes you can build something on your own. Find a need, find a niche there is something out there that someone is willing to pay for and fill that need.

BM and AM you built something did you not? Microsoft was started during a recession by a college drop out. He did fairly well for himself. I personally am moving on and building a future for my family and more power to all that are willing to do the same.

Best of luck to all!!!

I have shut up since 2008 but have followed this entire debacle. Now that the company is dead I will break my silence. I was hired as one of the original start-up managers and thought I had landed into a dream job. I had great respect for Tim and Kevin. I truly believed in the concept of the company and team they had assembled. Unfortunately, they made some truly horrific decisions and hires over time. I was truly hurt when I was down-sized but in retrospect God was good. I hope the many good people who were left find places to land. I am probably not the only one but please know I did try to sound the alarm. No one would listen ... shout out to Ryan and Sharon ... I told you so, God help me I told you so.

Lincare bought the patient base. Yes it was a good company with patient care. However, they made some bad business decisions and Medicare's ever decreasing reimbursement cuts will weed out every company except the Lincare's and Apria's...It is a shame!

We are in California now. Back in Indiana, in July 2011, we got excellent care from the lady at the desk and the respiratory therapist at Cardiosom. They were professional in every way.

Lately, our supplies and invoices are sent from Care-Centrix. At this time, their records are messy as we are getting billed for supplies paid for months ago -- and finally being billed for other items from 6 months ago.

Who is this Care-Centrix?

CareCentrix is an Ancillary Care Network. they provide home care services for different insurance companies like CIGNA, and BC/BS. They had nothing to do with CardioSom. More than likely your insurance plan changed and now CareCentrix is the "in-netowrk" provider for your insurance.

All I can say is that Cardio-Som was great to me and Lincare SUCKS! I was not even notified that my account was sold to Lincare until I got a bill from Lincare. I cannot even get a response to my phone calls or complaint letters. My insurance company requires that my C-PAP SD card be read quarterly, but Lincare does not seem to care about that. Have not heard from anyone since December 2011.

All I can say is complain and complain often. Complain to their corporate office, complain to Medicare, Complain to their Accrediting body http://www.chapinc.org/ NOTHING will change if you do not complain and voice your opinion to your insurance company which they contract with to provide services.

I sued Cardiosom in Tarrant Co TX and received a judgment against them. They have not paid it not do I expect them to. That is the kind of company they are/were--unethical and dishonest.

They were bought or taken over by Lincare who are just as unethical and dishonest as Cardiosom. Lincare's corporate office is in FL and all you get when you call is a recording. They do not return messages as I left one and never heard from them.

Yet both these companies are/were Medicare providers and in my opinion do not deserve to be. I am sure I am not the only one they have cheated and messed over.

Default Re: CardioSom

I am a former employee and I would just like to add a few thoughts. I know I'm late in responding...

However, my feelings are so strong about this that I just have to reply. The "Director of Human Resources" (it's quite apparent that he LOVED stating that this was his title) was nothing more than an egotistical control freak on a power trip. He loves drama and created it among the staff - often! He loved the rush he would get from firing people.

This company was the worst company I have ever worked for and treated their employees like dirt. Not only this, but to boost their image, they would sign up to participate in different charity events and then not follow through with their end of the bargain. The freaking head of the company donated $20 to a cause where a minimum of $500 was expected upon signing up to help. He donated this like he was such a saint -- what a bunch of cheap, greedy scum owners! The poor lower-level employees in charge of the project had to scrape money out of their own pockets in order to follow through with the obligation. And guess who ended up getting credit for it and good PR for the company?

Good riddance to this company.

Cardiosom was the company that first came out when my father needed oxygen at home. When the unit went down, I called the customer service number and I was referred to Lincare. Four years later I received a threatening letter from Carsiosom wanting to collect $30.00. Within those 4 years, I never received an invoice and all of a sudden I get a threatening letter. They never even told me they were transferring the service to Lincare. I have not heard from them since and hope to never hear from them again.
