For those of you who has worked hospice, please give me some advice. I have been offered a position with a locally owned and operated hospice agency. They seem really great and sincere and work well together. I currently work on a med-surg/psych unit at a local hospital. I am very unhappy there, from the hours to the staff. This hospice agency is small but legitimate and have great reviews. The problem I need advice on is that there are only 3 RN's and two of them take call for one week every other week (mon-sun) with the third being the NM who is back up. I was a supervisor of an assisted living facility and had to take call and it was murder. They would call you at 2am because mom didn't have a BM that day and expected to come and fix her. And if you said that it would be taken care at 7 am, when I got there, they would get mad and report you to the admin. Sooo, to make a long story short, what is hospice call generally like? Do you have to make a visit just because the family demands it or can you delegate them to take action like give a med or it will be addressed in the Am? I don't mind the on call but having to take it and work the next day will burn me out quickly, I have already been through that. Please give me some advice, because I love the hospice facility but I don't want to switch one evil for another!Sorry so long! Thank in advance!
