I worked at Vitas Innovative Hospice Care

Pros

Best part of working for this company is providing comfort for the patients and families.

Cons

On call for a huge territory after working your 8 plus hour day was extremely dangerous! More than once I almost fell asleep at the wheel driving to a patient home at 2am after having worked all day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make the on call team responsible for coving their own vacations and call offs.

    I have been working at Vitas Innovative Hospice Care full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Vitas offers 240 hours of PTO, which starts accruing after your 3 month probation period. Patients are well cared for. The Sacramento location seems to make a point of hiring a diverse staff, including management staff, with many ethnicitys represented and they are gay friendly.

    Cons

    Heavy caseload. I was hired to work Mon-Fri, and after 4 years, told that I needed to work 2 out of 3 weekends. We used to be able to start our visits from home, but now have to start from the office, which adds a 45 minute commute to my day, when I already drive hundreds of miles a week, seeing 6 patients per day.
