    I worked at Sutter Care at Home full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Understanding management, great resources. Benefits are outstanding.

    Cons

    Hours may be long on some days. It's to be expected in any Hospice job. Some staff may be cliquey within normal limits, but it is also to be expected in nursing.

    I have been working at Sutter Care at Home full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and supportive staff. No night shifts and only work every 5 th weekend.

    Cons

    With any health care position, constantly changing protocols. Productivity is a constant, and the ability to manage patients in a ever changing field.

    Advice to Management

    Work life balance

    I worked at Sutter Care at Home full-time

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. I enjoyed visiting patients at their homes. There was a lot of hands on experience - wound care, blood draw and educating patients/families about different diseases.

    Cons

    Management is more concern of productivity that employee morale. Management/leadership need to have some training in managing and communicating with their clinicians.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your clinicians and provide support as needed. Don't think that clinicians enjoy bothering you when they call for support and please address them in a professional manner.

    More clinical staff involvement in changes and program development. Utilize expertise from home health clinicians for ongoing education and professional development.

    Great benefits, good people and great flexibility.

    I worked at Sutter Care at Home full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I worked for Sutter Hospice for many years as a hospice aide. Great group of people to work with. Everyone has great respect and admiration for each other's work. Pto is granted more often than not. Excellent health and dental coverage. Thankful for the opportunity to work in the hospice field.

    Cons

    Productivity standards are unrealistic for hospice aides. No work/life balance. Management does not always listen when hospice aides request assistance with high acuity patients. Traveling around San Francisco to see 6 patients and adjusting your schedule to accommodate patients, can be very demanding at times.

    Advice to Management

    Work/life balance= energized loyal employee. You are in the business of caring for the vulnerable and terminally ill, so stop thinking $$$ all the time. In order to provide quality care for your patients, you must decrease productivity standards for the aides. Patients and their families will appreciate it and this will result in more positive customer surveys.

    I worked at Sutter Care at Home full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    SCAH does have some of the best nurses I have worked with and innovative programs not seen in most Home Health Programs

    Cons

    The leadership here is like a chicken with it's head copped off. they are running in circles.
    They will step over a dollar to pick up a dime.
    Decisions are knee jerk and go one way then another.
    it is as if they do not really know that the decisions they make in their little meetings, actually affect peoples lives.

    I worked at Sutter Care at Home part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Loved working with my patients and doing home care visits. Lots of hands on care: assessments, wound care, blood draws, teaching on multiple health conditions.

    Cons

    Biggest challenge was meeting the productivity requirement and completing required charting without compromising patient care or losing my sanity.

    Advice to Management

    There has to be a balance between productivity and good patient care.
