No opinion of CEO

I worked at American Hospice full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Place great emphasis on new hire orientation; Team work was great about nursing staff

Cons

Balancing personal and professional could be challenging; Benefits (insurance) was costly to the employee; No real opportunities for career advancement

Advice to Management

I know the bottom line is important and without money, there would be no jobs. Instead of making cuts at the actual direct patient care level, maybe look at eliminating positions in mid and senior management (along with their assistants).

    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 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
