Management mean and unsupportive.
RN Case Manager (Former Employee) – Bensalem, PA – September 21, 2016
I got a job as a RN Patient Care Manager in May 2016. I had a lot of home care experience but they were fully aware I DID NOT have hospice experience! The program director assured me I would have ample orientation before I was assigned a caseload. I had minimal, at best, orientation and was thrown out in the field with NO LAPTOP!!! I immediately was assigned 17 patients. The Nurse Manager was very mean and you only found out you didn't do something or made a mistake via a nasty email from her. It is a shame because the other nurses were great, helpful and supportive. I was more stressed out in this job than any job I ever had.
They were constantly after me for documentation (had to come in the office to do it) and acted like they were doing me a big favor by letting me come in.
I was out a few times as I became sick due to my IBS. I couldn't even sleep at night. I expressed my feelings to the Program Manager but it was put back on me. They had me come in to do all my documentation and then terminated me in August. Luckily, being a nurse I had several job offers and was able to secure one quickly. I worked extremely hard there, usually was up to 12am to do documentation, and also worked on it when I was out sick. Horrible, horrible experience. Beware!!!
I loved my patients !
