I am a recently retired employee after approx. 15 yrs of volunteer & employment with Hinds Hospice. I can assure you that our Hinds team members bring the greatest compassion, love, & integrity to the care of our patients & their families. It is definitely a place where you walk away each day knowing that you have made the lives of your fellow man better! Hinds Hospice brings hope to our end of life patients & their families.
Management is ingrown and insensitive to clinical staff work life balance. The agency has stovepiped departments that don’t collaborate or communicate internally. When I came to work there I believed it was THE hospice agency in Fresno to work for but discovered they’re just another employer. Sad and disappointed.
I found Hinds somewhat focused on patient care and quality outcomes but a great deal of politics for a non profit organization. Not given adequate training SPECIFIC to my role. My manager micro managed me and was very untrusting.
Worked well with "most" staff.
Very interesting job.
Small work environment.
Management difficult to communicate with. Never understood if an employee had a personnel issue at home to deal with.
Helping the patients & their famalies. Met alot of interesting people.
Seeing the patient struggle with their terminal illness, As well as their loved ones.
Working for a hospice has been especially rewarding since I didn't expect to ever be working in a health related field. But now I see how my field of expertise can really go hand in hand with all health related fields. Especially more than ever now as the rules and regulations surrounding the health sector have gotten more stringent.
Co-workers are very supportive and work well as a team. Management is somewhat unaware of issues with clinical staff and does not include staff in planning for changes. Love the patients, families, and co-workers!
