The most difficult thing is trying to overcome the misconceptions associated with hospice and trying to educate the community and healthcare industry on the wonderful benefits that patients and families are missing out on by not taking advantage of the services.
Hostile work environment. Senior leadership is reminiscent of junior high school mean girls.
It's very positive. They have an excellent philosophy and care, good leadership, and progressive thinking on changing the culture of hospice care in the areas they serve.
Terrible reputation in the community with few referral sources. Probably due to the extremely high turnover of medical professionals leaving and finding other jobs and speaking truth about the poor senior leadership of the company.
They don’t operate with integrity. Bottom line. The mislead and sell to new hires, patients, and physicians. The reputation is very bad. Low pay. They don’t value their employees and they have loss compassion for terminally ill people because they are so busy just trying to get more and more.
The field workers and HIC's get the short end of the stick as far as hours. I've watched the DPC sit and gossip with the administrator for over an hour then they go to lunch for an hour.
Applied and had a great interview for RN brand new location in Ms. No call back. Just saw that the position is still posted. It's been approximately 3 weeks. Is this typical?
Very typical. The administrator has hired many people on their personal “feeling” rather than qualifications. I’ve personally seen a hire with unfavorable background or reference because they would rather “ask for forgiveness then beg for permission” just to get an applicant they had a “good gut feeling” about. Never fear, it is always someone else’s fault when they are questioned about it later!
What is the vacation policy like at HEART OF HOSPICE, LLC? How many vacation days do you get per year?
1 week a year and then they increase over your years of service.
