Triage Nurse (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – February 19, 2016
Very busy and cutting edge hospice. In recent years has undergone some major changes some of which were not preventable and others that were. At end of my time there I noted some major financial problems which had greatly affected services and made changes in how and way care was provided. I really enjoyed the staff there and truly have never known a better bunch of people.
Clinical Support and Triage Clerk (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – June 9, 2014
Hospice does amazing work but due to the times, and all the changes in healthcare and the many layoffs that have occured over the past year, I am not feeling secure in my position. Currently I am doing a different job than what I was hired to do 6 yrs ago and basically bored and no sight of a raise in the horizons.
Staff RN (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – February 24, 2014
This was my first hospice job and I needed a lot of support at first and got it not only from my managers, but the Drs. also. The staff was awesome. Since it was my first hospice job the hardest part was learning how best to deal with family grief symptoms. Upon arrival to the pts. homes the most enjoyable part was seeing relief on the families faces. They were so appreciative of the care.
Insurance (Former Employee) – Finance – September 14, 2011
The hospice of the bluegrass had great benefits for their employees. They worked hard to take care of the patient and family. The management in some departments were not approachable or fair to their employees. When a person did something wrong instead of reprimanding that employee they email the whole department and blamed them and reminded them of the rules. There is allot of personal politics going on in some departments and management offered a private hot line to call in to complain, but then whomever got in trouble got to listen to the complaints so they would identified the source and then bullied them. There are a few bad apples in the bunch and seem to get away with allot of things which causes conflict in the office and turmoil that the good employees keep leaving.

I greatly enjoyed my experiences at Hospice of the Bluegrass. The employees and supervisors are great to work with. The mission and values of the company are incorporated into every aspect of the employees day-to-day lives. This place is filled with a passion for services and assisting families and individuals during their times of need.
This is a wonderful thing to prepare people for the last stages of life. You are so appreciated, and feel like you are so personally fulfilled in helping patients and families deal with their last days of life.
