I am honored to be included in this part of my patient's life.
RN Case Manager/staff nurse (Former Employee), Gainesville, FLJune 18, 2014
Pros: visiting my patients in their environment and keeping them comfortable.
Cons: micromanagement
The hardest part of working for hospice is when a patient is having trouble with symptoms that are difficult to manage, like pain, and it takes a while to finally get the symptom under control. At this stage of life, many people are wondering what lies ahead, if they are not yet sure. I am honored to be able to spend time with my patient and family – more... members in discussion about what can be expected physically as well as on a spiritual level. – less

Patients with money are called VIPs
Continuous Care Manager (Former Employee), Gainesville, FLJune 14, 2014
Pros: great patients and familes
Cons: carolyn webber- big red
Patients are treated according to their social/economical status. The less money you have the less important you are. Nurses often say " This is a VIP patient". Which usually get them better care.

Managements main concern is bottom line.

Be prepared to kiss up or not gt promoted Turnover at this place is higher than I have ever seen especially in – more... HR. – less

Very rewarding work with wonderful patients and families, super staff
Medical Social Worker (Former Employee), Chiefland, FLMarch 5, 2014
Pros: adequate salary, wonderful staff
Cons: frequent on call and unmanageable caseload (if done clinically properly
Team members worked well together. I felt that caseload and on call interfered with patient care. The lack of dedicated bereavement services put quite a strain on the social workers who could not devote adequate time to the needs of grieving loved ones. Other companies have specialized teams of bereavement counselors (these services are not covered – more... by Medicare.)

I resigned due to high stress and realization that I am more suited to part time employment these days. – less

Haven is a wonderful place to work.
Caregiver (Former Employee), Signal Hill, CADecember 26, 2013
Pros: getting to work with wonderful peoples (co-workersl and clients), working outdoors was also a plus, you get to meet diferent peoples in different parts of the medical fields, but more important i enjoyed working with my seniors and the other hospice patients.
Cons: they really need to increase the pay.
I started working for Haven as a volunteer for one of my class room assignment, they like me so much they hired me on as one of the companion. I was able to content going to school and work at the same time and kept my grades up.
They are a caring Hospice company doing wonderful things across the US.

Work here if you like to be tormented
Survivalist (Former Employee), What price would you pay for your sanity?December 15, 2013
Pros: caring for clients
Cons: management, working 24 hrs per day, no life and for a bonus you will get no respect.
The politics within this company will suck the life out of you. Expect to be walking on eggshells, unless you agree to be a puppet. A Like and Don"t like list exists based on your willingness to be controlled. Be prepared to start taking anti depressant and anxiety medication. The good thing is that you won't have worry about having to think because – more... that will be done for you, regardless of your educational level. Don"t forget to pack your bottles, diapers and creams, which you will need...since you be treated like an infant on a daily basis. – less

Many excellent care givers, poor senior leadership
Former employee (Former Employee), Gainesville, FLMay 12, 2013
Pros: excellent care and reputation in the community
Cons: leadership
There are many well qualified, compassionate care givers providing excellent services to patients and families. Senior leadership is pretentious and disconnected from service delivery, making it a challenging place to work for management-level employees.

A breath of fresh air!
RN, Hospital Liason (Current Employee), Northeast FloridaNovember 17, 2012
Pros: salary, benefits, vacation, staff, resources, culture, team, management
Cons: last minute referrals that may run late
What an amazing company, not just for it's patients and families but for employees. I think it definitely shows in the great patient care alone how wonderful the employees are treated. I love my job, I will take a bad day at Haven over a good day any where else I've worked before. The training is above and beyond, my co-workers and managers are helpful, – more... kind, compassionate and fair. There is a healthy amount of time off compared to other companies and the benefits package exceeds my expectations and is far better then any I have had in years. All this makes for happy employees who actually enjoy their jobs and don't dread the alarm going off in the morning!
I have been treated like a family member from day one and I am comfortable calling on a number of people for help even when I'm in the field. This is the only company who I've heard of encouraging "self care," as in take care of yourself so you can be your best at work... Crazy concept I know! I take pride in the care we give each patient and it is an honor to be part of this company! – less
