Quote from aphillipi
I'm a new grad who has a per diem position at one hospice and just called in to an interview at another hospice. I'm wondering if it is a conflict of interest to work for two hospice companies? I know they are very competitive. Obviously I would never share pt info or do anything inappropriate I'm just wondering how an employer would see it. Does anyone else work for two hospice companies? Thanks!
I've seen it done a lot all over Southern California since there are so many hospices. If you're Per Diem it shouldn't be an issue. If they want you exclusively as their nurse they should offer you full time. You are not marketing to these patients and you should make that clear that you're interested in the experience and patient care aspect only. Just be cautious. Once you get another job, in the event that a pt is unhappy with their service, notify your supervisor so that it doesn't seem like you'll steal the patient away (which is the biggest fear of the companies). I've had patients mysteriously transfer to another hospice agency that another co-worker happened to work at (not a good look).
