I worked at American Hospice full-time for more than a year
Pros – You will meet a lot of nice people that do grunt work like you do
25 cent drinks in the break room
Fair to good benefits, but they don't outweigh what you will sacrifice to remain employed with their company
Cons – Senior management is only concerned about money and has no compassion for patients/families or their employees. They will screw you over in a heartbeat. Upper management is incompetent in their leadership and clinical skills leaving those in the field nursing supervisors in the office with no support and condemning them when things go awry.
They also say there is no money for annual raises but fly their corporate people around the country frequently putting them up in full service hotels, eating at five star restaurants, and getting their own rental cars. All of this profit coming from people that are dying.
Advice to Senior Management – Get (and keep!) good managers and let go of the bad ones. Unfortunately, you run off the good people and promote the lousy ones.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at American Hospice
Pros – Clinical competence of on-call nurses
Cons – Total clinical incompetence of clinical mgmt - no recent clinical experience; poor clinical judgment
Untrustworthiness of administration and management
Harassment and micromanaging of professional staff
Too much "passing the buck" - managers do not communicate process/progress in resolving patient issues
Pass over employee concerns - no support
Administrators "on-call" pass the buck and leave nurse unsupported
Advice to Senior Management – Replace current clinical mgmt with C-O-M-P-E-T-E-N-T, more recently clinically-active RN
Survey your professional staff about above concerns - will HAVE to be anonymous
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
