The work itself is completely rewarding. It takes a special person to care for a dying patient allowing them dignity during their last few moments on Earth. Promises were made about position advancement/promotion, only to have the job be given to someone else. The admission process went from the nurse contacting the patient and setting up a time that was mutually agreeable, to having the "secretary" set up the admissions. Admits were often scheduled for late afternoon (4pm) or weekends. Each admit takes on average 3 hours; so after seeing patients all day, then doing a late day admit, it wasn't unusual to work a 16 hour day...and this was seen as "ok" by management. Training process was somewhat weak.
Good benefits, company car, good pay, caring for a special group of patients.
Long hours, admissions often scheduled for late evening hours, poor work/family life balance
