Not in the real spirit of hospice nursing
RN Case Manager (Current Employee) – Tavares, FL – December 3, 2017
All the nurses here are stretched beyond what they can endure. Since this so called not for profit is all about the money, when numbers go down a little, they lay off nurses and the ones that are left have to take on even more patients when they can barely handle what they have.
Many of the patients are either not hospice appropriate, not terminal, or are not on board with hospice care, which just makes it harder for the nurses to do their jobs. There are a lot of problems with ethics, but you have to just put up with it or get out.
