I worked at VITAS Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Patients and families need help and many extremely thankful.

Cons

Management is untrustworthy and dysfunction. They use the blame game without gathering the facts. Its is profits over patients and field staff. Management in Jacksonville horrible. Also major concerns with working for a company that has a 35 million dollar medicare fraud charge against it. They very often recruit patients who are not hospice qualified.

Advice to Management

This company will not be successful with current management. The only way you attempt to keep census up is by having a territory so large it wears field staff out and you take people who do not qualify with 6 months or less to live. Follow the rules and treat staff fair!!!!!!!! .
