Pros: Providing Hospice care is Respectable.
Cons: Your own vehicle will rack up >30, 000 miles annually. No $$ raises in >4 years.
Local management is very dissatisfied with their job expectations and the negativity flows down hill daily. Turnover was high. RN's were terminated without a moment's notice. Then we were COMMANDED to cover the staffing voids at $2.00 an hour on-call a few nights a week from 7:00pm-8:00am. Still, the home office wouldn't permit hiring an additional nurse because the sales team couldn't increase the patient census. After 5:00 pm there is rarely staff support, just one solo RN to cover two counties. Even when you are called out late at night or in the wee hours of the morning, the next morning at 8:00am you're completely exhausted, but you're expected to be full stream ahead and right back into your full day. There is NO comp time and no sick time. 3 weeks annual accumulation into the PTO bank and if you're sick, you can't make up the PTO hours by working extra at a later date. They don't tell you that at hiring time!! There's NO 401k matching and the only 401k account offered is Fidelity, which has been performing poorly since I started there in April, 2013. Worst of all, I paid out almost $9,000 last year for their traditional health plan. This job will deplete you bank account!!!!! RUN AWAY!!!!! Put that office out of its misery already!!!!! By the way, the Director of Clinical Services is very hard working and she is trying to keep the ship afloat, but there is just to much for one RN manager to handle. I still feel great about the hospice mission, but Asera Care Hospice is too cheap to staff this office at a sufficient level, and the patients are the ones who suffer.
