    I worked at a for-profit hospice that was sold to a "non-profit". At least that is what they claimed. They came in and showed us a film about the work they did overseas for sex-trafficking and other worthy causes. The owners live in huge homes and they treated the nursing staff horribly. I worked 90 hours the week before Christmas last year. They turned a good hospice into a nightmare and I find it hard to believe that they were truly doing any good around the work. I can find no evidence of that on the internet. This is only one instance and I know there is a true non-profit in town that is awesome and has been around forever.

    I have worked for Heartland in Calif and they are so badly managed that I would never suggest anyone work for them. Yes the Nursing staff do a great job but like so many other hospice companies the nurses are treated poorly and not like the professionals they are trained to be. Hospice is becoming a discipline where staff expect to be bossed around, taken advantage of, or made to jump when asked to. The only question we can ask is how high should we jump. A great service has been turned into a machine like atmosphere, where the human touch is being lost out to administrators who are running scared trying to make the numbers they are supposed to. It is very sad and Heartland is no different. Nurses and HHA's are the back bone of hospice, but instead one feels like a robot having to meet all sorts of demands that are unreasonable.

    In my experience both Heartland and Seasons are FOR PROFIT health agencies. That means that their goal is to make and increase profits annually by providing hospice care as inexpensively as possible. The goal is profit not good outcome.
    The objective is corporate growth not good outcome.

    I have seen good and bad for-profits and good and bad not-for-profits. I think it depends on the specific hospice. One difference that I have seen is that not-for-profits tend to have more charity funds and charity patients than do for-profits, but not always.
