Wonderful interactions with patients and families
RN Staff Nurse (Former Employee), Dayton, OHJune 8, 2014
Pros: wonderful co-workers, wonderful patients
Cons: frequently too busy for lunch and breaks of any kind
The most enjoyable part of my day was helping people through some of the most difficult part of their lives. To make the last days as meaningful and comfortable as possible . My co-workers were wonderful, kind and caring. The most difficult part of the job was losing patients that I had become close to. It was also very difficult to see the sorrow of the families .

Staff is very consciencous
Staff Chaplain (Former Employee), Dayton, OHMay 26, 2014
Pros: freedom and trust to do the job (in the beginning)
Cons: micro-management
Working with HOD Staff was a blessing as they are the angels who take care of the client and the family. I was impressed with the majority of the people I worked with and enjoyed being a team player.

I tended to my own schedule, making appointments as had been agreed with clients. I arrived on time or early with a phone call if I was going to be late.

I would see as many clients as needed in a day to meet the requirements of the organization, often going above the required number. I often assisted other chaplains with needed visits.
I encouraged other staff members with a morning positive and uplifting message for almost two years.
I participated in Interdisciplinary Team Meetings which were often debriefing from difficult cases would take place.

Through this experience, I have learned that I have the skills to tend to this work with grace, compassion, humor, and the ability to help others cope with impending death of self or a loved one.

Management when I was first hired permitted the professional staff to go out and do their jobs with little direction. I often checked in with management to make sure I was doing as desired with positive response. Management then moved into the direction of micro-managing which caused anxiety with the professional staff.

The hardest part of my time with this organization was the transition from positive leadership to negative micro-management.

The most enjoyable aspects of my job were many. To meet someone who was struggling with end of life issues and to be able to help overcome some of those issues, to be able to support families in their impending loss and the loss, to support staff who struggled with different clients or personal life issues were enjoyable. Being permitted the opportunity to meet people where they are in their life journey and to be able to provide a little enjoyment in that time was just as much fun.

Good mission and culture but no substance
Human Resources (Former Employee), Dayton, OHApril 7, 2014
Pros: community leader of hospice care
Cons: leadership, managers, spend much more than they make
A typical day at work is very different depending on the job and your manager. I really like the idea behind HOD but it has declined greatly from 2010 to current. The management team is questionable and there is a TON of fluff but not much substance. People absolutely receive great care from the nursing staff but the way the company is ran isn't "best in class" as they would have new hires/staff believe. The building, although pretty is a money pit that HOD spends entirely too much money and time/attention to. The stability of the company has declined GREATLY over the past 3-4 years. Some of this is a result of the current state of health care but MUCH MORE is because of the lack of confident leadership. If you are going to join HOD I would say keep an open mind and proceed with caution and have a back up plan if they loose census (happens OFTEN) or they decided to eliminate your job.

Productive and Fun
Culinary Specialist (Current Employee), Dayton, OHApril 6, 2014
My typical day

I have great management and Co-worker. All are extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

I have learned how to work quickly and accurately and to compile with state regulations and guidelines.

The most important part of my day is knowing that the people their families within my care are more then satisfied with quality of my customer care and food.

The hardest part of my job. My schedule is too varied. I want to return to school to obtain my degree in Hospitality Management & Tourism at Sinclair Community College. So I need steady working schedule one that will be the same from week to week to plan schooling accordingly.

Excellent Hospice care facility. Strong community support.
State Tested Nursing Assistant (Current Employee), Dayton, OHNovember 27, 2013
Pros: extremely rewarding
Cons: physically and mentally draining.
I have worked for Hospice of Dayton for two and a half years, and love my job to the fullest. I get to interact with patients and their families, while giving them support and care at the same time. I've never worked with an organization that gives such unconditional support to their entire staff, the way Hospice of Dayton does.

The Hardest Part of my job
Personal Care Specialist (Current Employee), Dayton, OHAugust 20, 2013
Pros: working 12 hour shifts
Cons: management did not feel they cared about me as a part of the team
I love caring for people and it was hard to see family & friends watch their loves ones hurt from pain & end of life process that the body goes through. I enjoyed being able to care for people at such a time I done anything possible to make sure everyone was comfortable & satisfied with the care their loved ones received.
