Medical equipment deliveries to residential or Health Facilities is a challenge since Patient and family members are somewhat stressed out on their situation knowingly that their loved family member is ill and going through a lot hardship and pain. Challenging too that there are times to see myself comforting relatives when when Patient expires.
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Sylmar, CA – May 17, 2017
The reason this place is the worst environment to work at is quite simple. Not only are you overworked, but you're also ill equipped and unstaffed. Their structure is disfunctional and their management is incapable of dealing with Hospice patients. In my eyes they're the worst DME company out there. The stories I have to tell don't compare to those I've heard. I would not wish this job on my biggest enemy.
Director of Operations/Area Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Plano, TX – August 9, 2016
Fast paced day, filled with logistic and staff management. I have learned many corporate policies and procedures, as well as sharpening communication and team building skills. The most notable part of the job is the ability to help and service so many patients in need,

Enjoy working with the patients and putting a smile on their faces. Hospice patients and their family are going through hard times while their loved ones are in hospice, so making them smile brings great joy
Lead Tech (Former Employee) – Sherman, TX – January 20, 2016
learned how to set up medical equipment, how to properly clean medical equipment, how to properly describe how the medical equipment works to the patients and other family members, and drove all over the place.
get jobs for the day. load van with everything needed to complete orders for the day. set up my route. learned how to use and set up different kinds of equipment. the people were very freindly and helpful.the hardest part was when they added more jobs and you would have to change your route to make it happen. the most enjoyable part was meeting so many different kinds of interesting people.
Typical day is load the van and do your deliveries and usually others deliveries cause they cant keep employees. Management style and ability is below par. one facility will have a manager and be micro managed from two other upper management in other facilities. Jobs perfect for someone who has no life cause they wanna work you into the ground but not compensate you for your overtime, they just flex you the next day so your overtime is regular time. Honestly the most enjoyable part of the job was the end of the day.

Hard to do your job that you were hired for when the management team does not let you do it. lack of equipment and employees that do not want to do their jobs. be sides that the pay was good and got to meet wonderful people .
Pay was good
Lack of equipment, lack of help from uper management.

Unfortunately they work your butt off and refuse to pay overtime. They don't like giving raises unless your their pet.never get time off. Someone passed away in your family. Good luck they don't like giving days off for that either. If you apply for a manager position. Good luck they won't interview you for it. They will hire someone else at lower pay.
Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – April 16, 2014
The most enjoyable part of my job was, helping patients and their families with the medical equipment. The hardest part was finding out a patient you formally helped has passed. I learned a lot from this position about the medical industry. My co-worker where a lot of fun to work with, we bonded well with each other, and our management team where wonderful as well. I loved working for this place.
Driver/Technician (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – August 27, 2013
At Hospice Source I would load a Van up with hospice equipment such as concentrators, nebulizers, wheelchairs and other equipment that I would end up delivering to dying patients. I would also load the van with hospice medical beds and put them together once I arrived to the patients home.

This was a great company at one time but not so much now. the company is having growing pains. So they use up people to get what they want.They do not care about our family life . i gave them 110%. Under paid was my reward.
