On Call LPN (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – September 10, 2012
When I started at this hospice they were great. Management changes led to a bad working environment. Patient care is no longer priority. They are probably as good as any other hospice now, instead of one of the best.
has a dedicated on call staff.
more concerned with the bottom line than with the patient.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – October 1, 2017
Hardest part of the job is balancing work and home life, Hospice work is very time consuming. The company takes pride in their care of patients but the budget allowed for things patients need is not enough. Some of the newer management that were starting when I was getting ready to resign were not always truthful to the employees
Licensed Practical Nurse/Field nurse (Former Employee) – Farmingdale, NY – September 27, 2017
Great place to work if you're starting out and wish to advance your career, very generous fringe benefits, paid time off, medical benefits, education stipend however they are very top heavy and penny wise while being dollar foolish. Need to spend more of their assets on training in a more organized and efficient manner, pay better to field staff.
RN Case Manager (Former Employee) – Muskogee, OK – September 26, 2017
Management very difficult to work with and very poor feeling of job security they frequently let people go and run short of help. You work all day and chart most of the night or all weekend. Difficult to please current management and the computer system is antiquated and difficult to work with it crashes and takes twice as long to chart and management does not help and cannot get the workplace in order.
Home Health Aide (Former Employee) – Newton, ks – September 19, 2017
The environment was mostly stress free. If any questions came about, I knew I could always go to the supervisor and she would lead me in the best way possible. I think the hardest part of the job was going into a new patients house and meeting them for the first time, but after that, everything went very smooth. The schedule is very flexible. If I had an appointment or needed to take off work early, it was never a problem.

LPN (Current Employee) – Wichita, KS – August 24, 2017
The nurses at GSH are wonderful. We have a great crew that back each other up when needed. I love working with this group of people. My patients are the best. Sometimes being in private homes can be a challenge but we manage and provide the best care possible for all our patients.
RN (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – August 6, 2017
This company has only one thing going for them and it is their compliance officer. Everything else is all smoke and mirrors. You can't believe anything you are told and only half of what you see. Absolutely no job security even for loyal, successful employees. Beware.

Volunteer (Current Employee) – Farmingdale, NY – June 14, 2017
Applies different approaches to make patients feel comfortable. We are there for the patient and not ourselves. Therefore they are the priority. Another important aspect is learning to be patient. Our needs come after the patient's needs.
It is very enriching to help people in their last days
You establish a bond with a patient that affects you when they pass away
The care provided to patients and families is above excellent. As a representative of Good Shepherd and the Hospice Benefit it is a privilege to educate families and professionals on the benefit of Good Shepherd Hospice and Hospice in general.

RN Case Manager (Former Employee) – Houston, TX 77014 – May 15, 2017
Company could not retain RN Case Managers in the field, this made visits overloaded to the one and only RN case manager which was my self, Supervisor was very disorganized and did not disclose visits that needed to be done that day until after hours
