Excessive amounts of paperwork; poor management; money is the bottom line; unrealistic expextations
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Mandeville, LA – December 31, 2016
Although the pay and benefits are good with this company and the staff are sincere and professional, the expectations of nurse to patient daily visit ratios and paperwork is unrealistic. The only way to truly complete all that is required is to work off the clock or possibly drive-by 15 minute patient visits.
Patient care is not the primary focus, the "bottom line" is. Understaffing as well as poor, disorganized, and chaotic management has led to high nurse turnover rate and poor patient care. The pharmacy vendor they contract with is unprofessional, unreliable, and lacking, at best. Not only would I not recommended this job for any nurse that truly has a heart for hospice, I would not recommend patients/families to this organization for end of life care.
Unrealistic expectations; "bottom line" is focus; drive-by hospice care
