loved the out look on patient care and quality of life for each patient and their familys
State Tested Nursing Assistant (Former Employee), Ashtabula, OHMarch 26, 2014
Pros: weekend program allowed me to be with my family durning the week.
Cons: i missed a lot of weekend activities
At my last position at this company i worked the weekend program. I loved this, because at the time, my spouse and I were foster parents. This postion allowed me to have the flexibility to be able to help my children and their familys. The company was good at helping us keep a balance between home and work. The management was our partner as well as – more... our boss, which helped keep good communication going. Weekends were very long but I came home feeling good knowing that I did what I could to help my patients and their family through a very difficult time. I felt I was well trained and given the tools and help to do the job well and safely. – less

While working there, I found everyone is the same. No ego trips!
Hospice Nurse (Former Employee), Cleveland, OHDecember 29, 2013
Pros: autonomy to utilize expertise and express ideas to physicians.
Cons: change to salary wages rather than hourly.
An excellent place to work. Staff support is good. Co workers support each other staying late to help finish their shifts so as not to overwhelm next shift.. Hospice Nursing is especially draining physically and emotionally. I found that whatever the discipline from STNA to maintenance to RN, all worked together and were able to lighten the moment some – more... way.

The hardest part of job is night shift admissions when unplanned patients arrive without information from admitting facility. The most enjoyable part of the job was the support of each other. – less

Team was key in this workplace; a positive attitude prevailed
Hospice Nurse Assistant (Current Employee), Euclid, OHSeptember 2, 2013
Pros: new-found friendships, development of inner strength.
Cons: very little time for lunch, no breaks in the 12 hour work day
There was no such thing as a typical day at Hospice. Each day had its own set of challenges, and blessings. The most wonderful, yet most difficult part of the job as well, was caring for the WWII veterans. What an honor to escort these heroes out of The House, draped with The Flag as our final act of gratitude.

A TYPICAL DAY IS COMING IN AND MAKING SURE EVERYTHING IS CLEAN. I THEN WOULD HELP PREP MEALS AND DELIVER THEM TO THE PATIENTS. SOMETIMES I WOULD SIT IN WITH THE PATIENTS AND HELP THEM AT THEIR REQUEST.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Cleveland, OHApril 15, 2012
Pros: a very fast pace enviorment
Cons: yearly cookout for the staff during working hours
New opened cases was the normal run of the mill, but it could get intense when a chart was reported dropped off & chart wasn't dropped off. Infact its still in the nurses's bag.
