Pros: teamwork, flexible schedule, patient focused.
Cons: if you are not able to manage your time wisely then it would not be a job for you!
When I first started working for hospice advantage within the past year I was told that they had some rough patches and but they were owning up to the mistakes. There was new management, they were doing what they could to make it a better hospice. I wasn't sure if I was making the right move In my career.
Now we have a committed team! Our clinical team consists of RN case managers, hospice aides, music therapy, massage therapy, volunteers - pet therapy, Chapalin, social work, and a physician that we can even call in the middle of the night! Together we all work together to make sure our patients / family's are taken care of to the best of our ability.
There are weeks that are busier than others but what job doesn't??!? We are only on call 1 x week plus one weekend a month which will decrease as we get perdiem nurses. The job is also flexible. I give my job an A+ rating, I've never been happier :)
