Social Work Intern (Former Employee) – Mounty Prospect, IL – January 28, 2017
This is a great organization that allows patients to die with dignity. The teams work very closely to provide the best level of care. They have a very large geographical area that they serve and sometimes resources are spread pretty thin.

RHI was one of my best career experiences. Great leadership, fantastic co-workera and teamwork, supportive culture. Pay was fair, good benefits. I worked at the inpatient unit, the Ark, which was a beautiful place to work with an amazingly supportive culture.
Great enviroment, good teamwork, suportive leadership, company has values
At the end of the day it's about the patient's and their loved ones...

It really depends on your manager and the department you work for I guess. I had a great manager and I learned a lot while I was at Rainbow. It has a good mix of ages and the few males that do work there are really kind. Best social workers and bereavement staff you will ever find, that's for sure. They will go the extra mile just because that's the kind of people they are. It's the people that go unnoticed at Rainbow, that are truly the heart of Rainbow. And the widow who had it in her heart to start Rainbow Hospice in the first place, would have it no other way.
Inpatient Hospice Nurse (Current Employee) – Park Ridge, IL – January 20, 2014
The entire organization works very, very hard to provide the best care possible for the dying patient and support for the entire family. I currently work in a very small part of the company in the inpatient unit. I work as part of a team to manage and control symptoms that cannot be controlled at home per medicare guidelines. RNs work 12 hour shifts, and i have learned so much in the past 6 plus years i have been here. I thrive working with a team of people to bring optimum relief and comfort to a dying patient and the family. That is the best part of the job and the hardest. It is a joy to work with people who have one common goal; peace to a pt. and family at the end of life.

Working in this environment can be really hard but also really rewarding. You get to help people end their lives with dignity and comfort as well as help family members come to term with their loss. My boss was like a friend to me! All my co-workers were there to help and give support. The hardest part was loosing a patient but the most enjoyable was knowing what you did to help made a difference.
