Hospice field nurse (Current Employee) – Youngstown, OH – February 18, 2018
Local staff are great and supportive of each other. Always available to help. District management is driven by profits. Local management does listen to employees but often they can not help staff in situations per corporate policies.
Great company which rapidly delined over the past 18 months.
Hospice Nurse (Former Employee) – Munroe Falls, OH 44262 – December 12, 2017
This company was great for many years. The people I worked with were the best of the best in care and compassion. Pt. care was exceptional and the reputation was stellar. However, over the past 18 months changes were made to upper management and the new management did not care about the quality in care or reputation of the company and its employees. The company had laid off or lost most of its long term employees and has become just another hospice . Very sad....
Excellent vacation benefits.
Unrealistic expectations after so many employee cuts and subpar equipment.
Chaplain (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – December 6, 2017
I've worked for HLH for 4 years and it was good experience. It was a positive work environment and the priority is consistently on the patients. Management trusted employees to do their jobs with minimal oversight.
Administrative Assistant/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Merrillville, IN – October 18, 2017
I answered multi line phone system. It was a full day of printing documents and making copies, sending out mailers and filing patient documents. I learned a lot of what the hospice process was for and about. Management was nice enough. Working with nurses and the office staff was pleasant The end of life calls was the hardest part The most enjoyable part was the feeling of a sense of purpose in the families lives that were affected by the end of life experience.
Don't expect to have a personal life if you work at Harbor Light Hospice
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Ohio – September 29, 2017
Management is horrible and unrealistic. Constant overtime and on call hours. The company expects this job to be your life. After more than an eight hour day due to high travel during your day you get a call saying "we have an admission for you" which is another 3.5 hours of work time.
paid time off if they approve it
Constant OT and horrible wear and tear on your vehicle
great team of health care providers, mgmt team, and support staff
Nurse Technician (Current Employee) – Mishawaka, IN – September 25, 2017
a typical day is spent assessing patients, managing pain and symptoms of disease processes that come with end of life care, At Harbor Light Hospice we are allowed to care for people using a holistic approach without the time constraints associated with today's disease focused assembly line care, and the "patient" includes their environment and family, management is supportive,
a con could be the on call shifts, nobody looks forward to them but HLH has to provide 24/7/365 service and as much as you hate to hear your phone go off we got into nursing to help people and they do not only need help 8-4:30 monday through friday
Job Work/Life Balance
Community Liaison (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – September 16, 2017
Mirco-management, competitive for all the hospice providers plus they turn over staff left and right that make your relationships hard to maintain and build on.
Weekend On-Call RN (Current Employee) – Mishawaka, IN – September 5, 2017
I currently serve as the weekend on-call for a great office, and I love my coworkers, love my work, love my bosses. Weird, I know. I'm out of the day-to-day drama, so that helps! But I never feel left hanging or unsupported on the weekends, either.
Nursing is nursing, and because there are people in need involved, you're going to extend yourself and work hard, or you won't be good at it! My experience with Harbor Light at its best (current managers ROCK) is we try and care for and support one another as an extension of caring for patients and families. Are we perfect? Heck no, but we all love what we do and it shows.
There is no better work than this, and Harbor Light is a company I do it proudly for <3
Paid mileage, supportive work environment, great reputation in community
Lots of driving, some in nasty weather, patients don't get better :(
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Decatur, IL – August 1, 2017
new management rude to employees . overall company ran well and patients well taken care of. great auxillary support from social services, pastoral care and home health aides. maximum support from other field care nurses
frequently no lunch without proper reimbursement, extensive travel with poor mileage reimbursement
Field Nurse (Former Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – July 21, 2017
I helped start this company and even suggested an RN as the director. Yet, for some reason it took a turn for the worst. As is with small departments, rumors fly and everyone plays into the drama. Unless it has changed, I would not recommend this place.
Registered Nurse Case Manager (Former Employee) – Tinley Park, IL – July 5, 2017
Every hospice is a gift and offers different levels of support. This hospice offers enough for the client to walk them through their needs without any frills or advanced supports. The staff is often limited by the shortsightedness and pettiness of the management.
