    Former Employee - Patient Care Secretary
    Former Employee - Patient Care Secretary

    I worked at Vitas Innovative Hospice Care full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    no two days were ever the same; always busy and on the go; liked working independently (satellite office) but having the back-up of a bigger company

    Cons

    sometimes too busy - ergo, stressful and, of course, dealing with dying people can be challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    review the vacation arrangements so that public holidays can be incorporated as part of the employment package.

    I worked at Vitas Innovative Hospice Care full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The entire employee culture is one of care and service to the patients and their families. Almost the entire "frontline" of staff is comprised of nurses, clergy and social workers with great attitudes and capacity for caring.

    Cons

    The driving pressure of profit generation is in constant conflict with the mission of caring. The operation is extremely effective, but poorly efficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some business acumen, not just caring medical folks. You can do both, but not with the same people. You're in the "Business of Caring", but those two talents are rarely present in the same employees.
