Regional Nurse Coordinator (Former Employee) – Huntley, IL – July 9, 2018
This company seemed to grow too quickly and lost focus for a time. I can not speak to their quality of care at this time. After Passages Hospice closed the CEO/owner of transitions was determined to grow into areas that they had served. Growth was too rapid and not well planned.
RN Case Manager (Current Employee) – Huntley, IL – September 17, 2018
RN Case Manager at Transitions Hospice. Huntley area location. Had prior hospice experience as RN prior to hire at Transitions. Outstanding quality to patient care. Quality to patient care never lacked despite periods of increased growth throughout company. Patient focused care and dedicated staff 24 hours.
Staff is dedicated to working in team approach. Weekly interdisciplinary meeting held weekly and are productive and great learning opportunities. Excellent hospice medical director, physicians, and NPs that respond within minutes to calls, text, emails helping create care plans and treatment orders. Medical team is available for coaching and development of hospice knowledge. NPs have made joint visits to patient homes with me in challenging situations. Acknowledgement from management when visiting corporate office. Hospice CEO, directors, and company leaders make effort to say hello and ask how things are going. Over the years I have participated in meetings with managers who have invited me into office for feedback on ways to promote ways to improve care in the field. Positive and negative feedback was always received professionally. Improvements I have observed over past years has been introduction of the extended care team with dedicated night clinical staff that greatly relieved the daytime clinical staff of heavy afterhours responsibilities. Work life balance improved greatly with this change. As of now it is very rare to be called out for work after hours. If so, pay scales have increased allowing for fair compensation of additional hours worked. My requested formore... PTO / Sick time have never been an issue and coworkers and nurse managers have been very understanding for need for vacations and time away from work.less
Nurse Aide (Current Employee) – Huntley, IL – August 11, 2018
I've noticed a big improvement. The team is getting a little more stable in Illinois and it's noticeable. I was able to refer a friend and the Recruiter really took care of them. There's some work that needs to be done but I think they have the team to do it.
Team is getting there, company learning from mistakes, culture improving
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Huntley, IL – July 21, 2018
A typical work day consisted of visiting anywhere from 6-9 patients a day then document on each visit. I learned many things in regards to the end of life symptoms and management. The hardest part of the job is bonding with patients and losing them. The most enjoyable part of the job was the appreciation expressed by the patients for the care provided.
Volunteer Coordinator (Former Employee) – Huntley, IL – June 17, 2017
I enjoyed working with my coworkers both in the office and in the field. I worked with volunteers which was very rewarding. I did not like the lack of communication that often happened. I learned to be a self starter, and was challenged in my role. Hardest part of my job was juggling all the demands of many different areas, sometimes at a very stressful pace.
Great co-workers, employees and staff are very dedicated.
Lack of communication from management to staff. very low raises, big turnover.
