    Pros

    I have not had any bad experiences while working at Passages Hospice, LLC. I see all the bad reviews on here and I have not seen anything that was stated in the negative reviews. Passages does require degrees, licenses and or certificates. It would be illegal to have nurses work without licenses. Background checks are also conducted on ALL employees. I think if you are a disgruntle employee, you shouldn't be making up stuff to bad mouth a company.

    Cons

    I have not come across any.

    Pros

    The wonderful caring staff and the team approach that is done for each patient.
    Many innovative programs that are designed for each unique patient we care for (such as: Equine therapy, music, massage, Passages pooches, Veteran to veteran volunteer program, honorable transport (which is an amazing honor to place a flag over the veteran as they leave their home or nursing home for the last time.)
    The many awards Passages has received, for our innovative programs.
    Education opportunities for employees.
    Wonderful charity, Hospice Dreams that grants last wishes to hospice patients. (regardless of what hospice provider they are with)
    Great inter-disciplinary team meetings that focus on each patient individually

    Cons

    Tough to lose patients, after you have become so close
    Travel is challenging sometimes

    Pros

    Good benefits,flexible schedule. People like what they do and they tried to give us special programs, awards etc. You get to know families and people in the nursing home which is nice. They really try to give patients whatever is best or what they want like massage therapy. They provide contact hour training so we don't have to pay for it. They have a special program for people with dementia.

    Cons

    Long hours during CC visits. Its hard to loose patients all the time. You have to be strong and work even when you have grief. Lots of charting, sometimes with the same information. You have to be on call one weekend a month.

    Pros

    Great direct line caregivers (nurses, aides, SW, Chaplains!

    Cons

    No appreciation from management for the real worker bees. Unsupportive of complaints, criticism or constructive recommendations.

    Get back to the basics! Your nurses and caregivers are your greatest asset! Need an "undercover boss" intervention!
