I worked at Grace Hospice

Pros

I think that working for a hospice organization allows you to provide excellent end of life care to families that need the support to get through a very difficult time in their lives. You get to travel to different locations to see your patients in which you will not get tired of the same scenery all the time. You are paid very well for your mileage for travel time. The pay is significantly more than working in a skilled nursing facility.

Cons

Whenever you need time off, you are given a hard time about it because it is tough to find someone to cover your patients while you are gone. Sometimes, the traveling can become too excessive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The advice that I can offer to management is to make sure that you have some qualified per diem workers available so that your regular full-time and part-time employees can take time off when needed. This way, their patients will be covered.

    I worked at Grace Hospice full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    not too much to speak of, the benefits and time off is way behind the times. No real leadership - focus is more on "coaching sessions" and disciplinary actions than fostering autonomy.

    Cons

    Pay close attention to these items:
    **Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in nursing preferred
    (ask what experience and education the person you will be reporting to has.)

    **Able to handle multiple and shifting assignments
    (red flag - means there may not be a set job description and you may be doing more than 1 or 2 jobs because of staff retention issues).

    **Be available at all times, either in person or telephonically
    (see above).

    Also - ask what their staff retention is and how many experienced nurses have been fired or quit. Ask what experience their current nurses have. Do they have a dedicated on call staff for evenings and weekends?

    Inquire as to why they are in Troy instead of Ann Arbor - are there medicare issues and deficiencies?
