great coworkers and meaningful work but no work/life balance
Hospice RN (Current Employee) – Gainesville, GA – September 29, 2018
Every day is an adventure, traveling to different homes or facilities, triaging based on emergency calls vs. routine visits. Families and patients are mostly grateful for the help, and it is a privilege to be able to help patients become peaceful and comfortable during the most tender time in life. Hospice coworkers work as a team and have the good of the patient at heart at all times. Management are very supportive and have worked in the field so that they understand what the field nurses are going through. The hardest part of the job is keeping up with the documentation. Because some days are so busy with symptom management, many times nights are spent finishing documentation instead of spending time with family. The job is salary so there is no overtime.
