Good Management and dedicated workers
Social Worker (Former Employee) – Farmington, NM – December 23, 2015
Daily morning meetings with the Supervisor, Hospice Nurse and the Pastor. Updates on patients and received in office communications. Discussion on any difficulty issues. Assignments made by the Supervisor via the computer. An average of 3 home visits are made daily. Time sheets are completed daily to show mileage and face to face visit with the patient. Tablets used for patients to sign in to verify the visits. Personal vehicles used for patient visits. End of the day document in the computer the outcome of the visits. Weekly patient conferences with the Registered Nurses, Nurse Aids, Home Health, Home Makers, speech, physical and occuptional therapist along with Department supervisors. Meeting with the Doctor once a month to review medicine and patient status. Co-workers very dedicated; I watch them go beyond what their usual work would entail. On call almost 24/7 for their patients. Hardest part of the job; working with patients that have given up on themselves because of their medical conditions. The most enjoyable part of the job; those patients who try very hard to implement doctor's orders. Their stories were amazing. What I attempted to learn was Third Party Billing. The employment was part time and ended too soon.
Management provided a good work environment.
Too short of stay to observe the cons.
