Office Service Coordinator (Current Employee), Fort Lauderdale, FLSeptember 11, 2014
At VITAS, I am responsible for the organization and implemenation of the office system. I order medical and office supplies as well as stocking up important documentation for Doctor's & Nurses. I have learned the importance of simplifying the office system so that every employee can work smoothly in an office setting. I work with co-workers who are also considered my customers because they come to me on a daily basis for office supplies. I would have to say that the hardest part of my job is to gather medical supplies on a daily basis and disperse them to each nurse/nurse aid in a short window of time as we have up to a hundred nurses a day. The most enjoyable part of my job is to be able to serve my co-workers and to be able to help in any which way possible. It is very rewarding to be able to go into an office setting that have has a very welcoming atmosphere and environment.

Supportive Work Environment
Chaplain Intern (Former Employee), Lombard, ILAugust 18, 2014
Pros: ice cream truck would come in the summer
Cons: phoning in our time sheet
A typical day could be a combination of traveling to different facilities to visit patients and their families, attending funerals/visitations, going to Care Conference meetings, or attending CPE cohort meetings. Management with VITAS and through CPE were consistently supportive and helpful. Co-workers were positive and created opportunities for me to participate in activities to gain more experience in different areas around the office.

This internship taught me Story Theology and process learning.

PATIENT CARE SECRETARY/ FRONT DESK RECEPTIONIST (Former Employee), Milpitas, CaAugust 15, 2014
Pros: good benefits, job security
Cons: office drama
Vitas is a basic corporate owned medical company. Simple 8am - 5pm Monday - Friday hours. Typical duties; answering phones, greeting patients and vendors, usage of Microsoft Office. The hardest part of the job is speaking to patient's family members who are in a panic.

Continuous Care Nurse (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJuly 24, 2014
Pros: working per diem, i was able to schedule my availablity.
Cons: working per diem, their were times when i wanted to work, but didn't get called.
Almost every shift was different beginning with the patient and the care that was needed.
I learned that death can be beautiful.
I know that every person there loved what they do.
The hardest part was to put my own feelings regarding death and dying on hold and do the best for the patient.
It gives me a good feeling to know that I was there when their family or loved ones could not be.

Beware upper management
Registered Nurse, Field Hospice Case Manager (Former Employee), Encino, CAJuly 13, 2014
Pros: great people are your team
Cons: excessive pressure from cold upper management
I loved making a positive impact on our patients, their caregivers, families and friends. Some of my best memories are patients and their families/caregivers that I got close to. My co-workers in the field are dedicated compassionate and truly caring people and it's great working with a team and as a team. The team managers are a mixed bag, some good and some a terror to work under.

The worst part? Upper management. They care about making the company money more than anything. The atmosphere was becoming tense, hypercritical, frequent messages threatening our jobs if we don't do this and that and get your quota patients seen and the ever-increasing paper work done perfectly in a 8hr day. The 8hr day, if done even close to all "they" demanded was in fact a 10hr day. If we claimed OT "they" would brow-beat the team managers who would pass it on to us so we didn't claim OT and finished our work unpaid. I did not appreciate living in fear of my job .

CASE MANAGER (Former Employee), Cleveland, OHJune 24, 2014
Pros: team atmosphere
Cons: charting is 'old school' on paper- not up to date on technology
I loved my team of co-workers. I looked forward to Wednesday meetings to see them. For me it was a good balance of working with others and being accountable for my own time management.
