Pros: employee heath benefits, schedule
Cons: expensive family healthcare (employees are free!)
Hospice of Yuma is geared towards employees who can successfully manage their own time and set their own schedules. Aside from weekly rounds, employees are expected to schedule their own in-home patient visits and chart for those visits accordingly. The strong ethical culture at Hospice of Yuma was refreshing. All regulatory guidelines are adhered to explicitly and employees are encouraged to promote the highest ethical standards. While the social work team had a multi-teired management system, it has since been stream-lined. The co-workers felt like family, family who supports you to be your best, laughs with you when you mess up, and challenges you. Making a difference in the lives of terminally ill patients and knowing their families will function better because of your presence is the best part of this job.
