Social Worker (Former Employee) – Yuma, AZ – July 18, 2012
Hospice of Yuma is geared towards employees who can successfully manage their own time and set their own schedules. Aside from weekly rounds, employees are expected to schedule their own in-home patient visits and chart for those visits accordingly. The strong ethical culture at Hospice of Yuma was refreshing. All regulatory guidelines are adhered to explicitly and employees are encouraged to promote the highest ethical standards. While the social work team had a multi-teired management system, it has since been stream-lined. The co-workers felt like family, family who supports you to be your best, laughs with you when you mess up, and challenges you. Making a difference in the lives of terminally ill patients and knowing their families will function better because of your presence is the best part of this job.
Hospice RN (Former Employee) – Yuma – April 4, 2013
I worked at Hospice of Yuma a fews years back before I left the area. It was a wonderful experience. The fulltime Medical Director is a wonderful teacher and one of the most knowledgable doctors I have every worked with. I miss my co-workers as they were my support system ( No family in the area) and they really cared about the work they did with terminally ill patients. Management was great. They listened when I was overwhelmed and helped me learn better managment of my time. Paperwork was difficult but it is everywhere you work now as an RN. My time at Hospice of Yuma made me a better RN and more compassionate. I had to move due to family issues otherwise I would still be there. Working at Hospice of Yuma is the one thing in Yuma AZ that would make me want to move back.
great work culture, caring managment, good oreintation process
