I have been working at VITAS Healthcare full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great opportunity to really use your nursing skills while being able to take the time to really make a difference in the lives of your patients and their families. Very rewarding!

Cons

Leadership skills are less than desirable. Management seems overwhelmed and unable to provide adequate support and training their team requires. Monetary raises seem non-existing for the last 3 years.

Advice to Management

Provide your managers mandatory communication and leadership training.

    I worked at VITAS Healthcare full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are none anymore. When Hugh and Esther sold to the plumbers quality and ethics went away and we're replaced with money hungry sales rep and inappropriate admissions

    Cons

    They do not follow their values. If you know what is the right thing to do you will be treated terribly and retaliated against for trying to do the right thing

    Advice to Management

    What does it matter they won't listen anyway

    Pros

    The only thing I can think of is the actual experience of being a hospice nurse. Although extremely challenging, it is the most rewarding work I have ever done.

    Cons

    Not feeling supported by management
    Working 3 weekends every month
    No advantage to having "seniority"
    No loyalty to employees
    Poor communication between mgmt and employee
    Minimal yearly wage increases
    Huge travel expectation w/o adequate mileage reimbursement
    Obvious discrimination by mgmt
    Unfair work practice

    Advice to Management

    Vitas has changed dramatically in the 6+ yrs that I was there. I use to be proud to work for Vitas and always passed that on to our patients and families. But that changed in the last year. We were no longer about "patients and families first", only about the dollar and whom could be taken advantage of to get it. I have never worked anywhere with such poor employee moral. It really is difficult to do a great job for our patients and families feeling so unsupported. Talk to your staff!!! At least "act" as if they matter!!!
