    I have been working at Suncoast Hospice full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good PTO, dedicated staff, ability to help patients at vulnerable time

    Cons

    Nurses are leaving in droves. Caseloads are through the roof, averaging 20+ patients per nurse and these are case managed patients, not safe. An average caseload should be about 14 patients to adequately manage their needs, keeping in mind these are dying patients who need much TLC. There is a quota of 20 visits per week which is manageable unless one of your patients goes south and you spend 4 hours getting them settled. Now to the on call. With so many nurses leaving your on call averages one weekend every 5 weeks and one full night each week. You can guarantee you will be called out to make back up visits, you are paid 50 dollars per visit regardless if you spend 30 minutes or 3 hours with that patient. Charting is supposed to be completed electronically at the bedside but is impossible due to the volume of patients that demand your attention. The result is spending until 10 or 11 at night charting or 5-6 hours on the weekend completing it. I used to love this job, it is very rewarding and fulfilling, now I resent the time it is taking away from my personal life and family time. Once upon a time you were treated as you should be when guiding folks through the journey to a comfortable and peaceful death. Initial orientation spends a lot of time preaching a work/life balance that is just not possible what is expected/required at this time. Now the focus is " get over it and here is another patient". Dealing with death and dying patients takes a toll on your mind body and emotions but this does not seem to matter any more. This is being reflected in the family satisfaction surveys, which are routinely shared with the staff making them even more discouraged. Any nurse worth her salt wants to do a good job at any cost and sharing the results adds shame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please please please someone come to your senses!! Walk a mile in the shoes of your field staff! Not just for one or two visits. Spend a week actually following a nurse and see the work that we do. Sit by my side from the time I start in the morning until I end my day. Realize that I am in action from the moment I get up until I go to bed. Realize that I routinely don't eat all day and rarely take a bathroom break. Sit next to me while I try to chart but are interrupted by numerous calls and texts. Get up with me at 2 am to go to an on call visit and then try to work the next day. Sit next to me while I try to complete my charting on the weekend while my family goes on without me. Get THIS house in order before you partner and attempt to move into other counties. Stop trying to placate us by telling us "it will get better soon" when this has been going on for years without any results or resolution. Ever since the nurses caseloads have skyrocketed there has been a total of ONE acknowledgement that our caseloads are way over what they should be and we are working understaffed by a VP and it was sent not by that person but through another and gave vague promises that they would work on hiring more staff. Suncoast Hospice was once known for its caring and compassionate staff but sadly I must say that is no longer true. Upper management is out of touch with what is really happening on the team level and seem to not want or care to know. Please wake up and realize this before you lose more employees that really want to do good work and provide superior care. I really love the work I do and do not want to seek other employment but I cannot tolerate this much longer.
