Registered Nurse Case Manager (Former Employee) – Green Bay, WI – October 29, 2018
found out with Southerncare that Hospice was the field of nursing i choose...& everyone wonders "WHY" "since it must be depressing dealing with people dying everyday"& "what do you even do since you just let them die anyways" the REWARD that's what it all comes down to is the fact that my job allows me to IMPACT the life of someone else & it thus far had been the only nursing job I ever truly felt appreciated. Death is part of life. one of the most important parts of life & I am there to make it as comfortable as possible. At this point in life you have come to terms with death& are accepting of it. I advocate for what you want to maintain your quality of life at this time. I LOVED IT ! Unfortunately(totally off guard)was let go WITH SEVERANCE PACKAGE but NO ability to defend myself as far as reason no investigation. Ended up being "wrongful termination" in the end but that did not mean re-offered job
rewarding. appreciated. impacted/made a difference in the lives of others.
work work work work & paid salary but yet always working
Hospice Case Manager (Former Employee) – Lafayette, IN – November 8, 2018
I did Case management. Visited clients at home. Offered support. provided education to clients and family members. Advocated for clients with doctors, nurses, nursing homes, and family. Participated in care meetings and making care plans for clients.
Coworkers were compassionate and hard working as well as professional. Great environment to work in.
I was told that I was not compensated for my education. My supervisor's boss fired 30+ employees in 2+ years. I left due to a schizophrenic/bi-polar employee. I enjoyed working with the staff, patients and their families. I have some really good memories.
Lack of support, respect and plan to operate make work life difficult
RN Case Manager (Former Employee) – South Bend, IN – October 10, 2018
I worked with this company for 5 months approximately, in South Bend, as an RN/case manager. The expectations are high (an usual week would be made up of 40 hours performing scheduled visits - 5 to 7 daily - plus 2 nights on call for 15 hours and an occasional weekend on call) pay sounds interesting as you enter the company (salary was around sixty five k plus mileage) but not enough as you calculate the per hour rate. Miles tracking are unfair, you enter the miles driven, computer computes the shortest distance between visits and pay you not for the real miles, but calculated. As an RN/Case Manager I was doing the job of RN/CM, admission nurse, on call nurse and weekend on call nurse. I often did find myself having to complete documentation at home and receiving phone calls from families/pharmacies/dr offices at all hours of the night. Management had their way of sweet talking and making promises that were never delivered, the Medical Director was not very accessible and can be very rude. If you are thinking about working here I would strongly recommend thinking about your personal life limitations. Corporate push employees to make all sorts of sacrifices to provide care and/or cover minimal requirements per medicaid/private insurance payors.
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Gadsden, AL – September 10, 2018
Staff was great, however, the DOO was a very poor leader. She was never available. Due to her poor leadership, many good personal left the company, myself included. The office had to come together and work together without a leader.
Community Relations Specialist (Former Employee) – Mansfield, OH – September 5, 2018
I left Southern Care Hospice to care for my ailing parents. I wanted to spend more time with my parents before they passed. Southern Care Hospice was not sympathetic when I was needed to care for my ailing parents.
Satisfying and exciting career with truly compassionate coworkers
Hospice Aide (Former Employee) – Vidalia, GA – September 3, 2018
This was what I felt I was meant to do! Some things I learned involved the high levels of compassion and quality that go hand in hand with hospice care! The hardest part of my job varied from patient to patient and family member(s). The most enjoyable part was hearing a patient say, "thank you" or "I love you" when their care plan was completed for the day!
Highest level of quality patient care was given everyday to every patient!
Watching family members suffer the loss of their loved ones!
Social Work Internship (Former Employee) – Batesville, MS – July 24, 2018
I work there for a few months after completing my degree as part of my internship placement. It was very relaxing and laid back type of atmosphere but I was only the intern. I have no idea how the job is as an actual employee but everyone seemed nice and supportive.
Medical Billing Specialist (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – July 14, 2018
I enjoyed working at SouthernCare; however, the management at the time seemed to not like me for some unknown reason and singled me out constantly. I did my job to the very best of my ability and was praised by many other executives and fellow co-workers. I would be happy to work here again if it was under different management from 2011. My co-workers and I got along great, ate lunch together and helped each other when deadlines approached.
