Pros

great training program for RN hospice nurse

Cons

not too interested in retention

Advice to ManagementAdvice

be more realistic in work load goals, specially for RNs new to home health hospice field, be more centered on development and enrichment rather than punitive.

    Pros

    Not very many that I wouldn't consider a requisite of employment

    Cons

    First, nursing assignments are done by the good ole boy method. Any time I had an easy assignment it was pulled and given to someone else on the 2nd day. Therefore, frequent last minute assignment changes. Pay........A JOKE! When you are hired as a FULL TIME EMPLOYEE you think that means 40 hours. At this company 40 hours a week occurs somewhere between 50-75% of the time with the explanation of "this is hospice." Then I'd suggest saying we frequently have less than 40 hours per week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can't tell them anything I'm sure they think they already know. I can't wait for the Affordable Care Act to kick in. I have never seen such a bunch of top heavy, do nothing people. There are patients on this company's role than hardly fit the broadest definition of a hospice patient and I'm sure hospice companies bill the government a remarkable amount to insure payment to the upper echelon.
