Patient Care Secretary (Former Employee) – Lancaster, CA – July 7, 2017
it was a lot of work and emotionally exhausting at times, I learned a lot about dealing with people, management was ok, hardest part was dealing with the patients families and best part was the nurses and aides.

Unfortunately students were not always prepared for the nursing program fundamentals. The administrative staff were no organized and communication, evaluation and organization was not beneficial to the students or faculty. The class size was not always reasonable. Students that are related to faculty or administrative staff made it very difficult to provide equal attention to all the students. The salary was excellent, as well as health benefits. This is not a position to support success of the novice instructor.

I enjoy being a nurse and working with and for different cultures. Opening dialogue in the aspect of Hospice Care, end of life care, palliative care and case management can be trying and difficult, but helping physicians, patients and families improve the quality of life at the end of life can be very rewarding.
Patient Care Secretary (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – June 8, 2017
A typical day was generally very busy with calls which is good. I would much rather be busy than not. New management came in right before I did and from what I heard from employees who had been there for some time, this was not a positive thing. Coworkers were generally helpful and for the most part worked hard. The hardest part of the job was not being able to take off a single weekend for more than a year, even if it was for a family wedding.
Every day was pretty different depending on what program you were assigned for the day, plenty of parking available, lots of over time if desired
NO work-life balance at all, management did not see this as a problem, it seemed as if we only existed to make them money, there was zero care whatsoever input for our own wellbeing

Starting in the call cycle within a Hospital typically started in the Emergency room with calls to nurses and physicians. Then working within the Internal Medicine residents and physicians to promote our products. Calls included meetings or not with Pharm D's in the ICU units and Med Surg floors.
Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Panama City, FL – May 2, 2017
A typical day starts with about an hour in the office getting organized for the day finishing up .Conferencing with others on the team about patients, etc.then is of to visit usually 4 to 6. lengh of visit depends greatly on what is going on. One of the beauties of being a hospice nurse is that no two days are alike! Sometimes we start from home and go directly to a pt's home.I find hospice nurse a rewarding career because we have the opportunity to nurse the "whole" person. During the final stages of life, we address our patient's physical, spiritual and emotional concerns and also support the family.

A very unique place to interact with patients. This is a great place to help patients improve their lives and live better. I learned here greatly. It was for me a very positive life experience and is a life changer. It is indeed good to have direct interaction with patients.
light duty work (Current Employee) – Middlebury, CT – April 12, 2017
I have found that poor management and terrible treatment of staff can take a wonderful facility and a happy productive staff who always puts the residents first can be a very sad situation for staff and residents alike.
Bilingual Admissions RN/ Case Manager (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – March 1, 2017
I learned many acute care skills while training as a trauma nurse. Level I Trauma Center, so very high and acute patient population. It is a teaching facility, so nurses are respected as part of the team.
