Poor management, they don't care about the staff or patients
Nurse (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – August 28, 2013
The general manager yells at staff, is a blow hard, with an enormous ego, and she has no nursing background. She puts social workers in team management roles, which offends the licensed staff. The GM hires employees who are related to one another which irritates the staff. For instance the PCA's daughter is an MSW--employed as a team manager---upsets the staff because the PCA is in charge of her own daughter. The management are very cliquey. We were not allowed to request changes in assignments or call the scheduler. Every petty patient complaint is addressed and nurses are written up.The pool/on call manager is passive-aggressive and punitive; likes to bait the nurses. Yet, she has not done any employee reviews in over a year.The business manager dresses like a street-walker. If you write a complaint about a physician not calling back the general manager threatens you. I was terminated without cause. The benefits, except for pto are awful. Pay is dismal, wage increase freeze. They pay far less than other hospices for triple the work. They give you no cell phone and mileage reimbursement is terrible. High turnover.
The patients--taking care of them
Awful mileage pay, no cell phone, poor, cruel management, high turnover, awful benefits, very low pay rate, no pay raises
