Chop chop chop! My hospice, the one I've posted about before that's going through a Medicare probe and has gone from a census of 200 to 80, let 14 people go yesterday. One more resigned today. They let go the entire call team (I was part of that), the home health aid supervisor/scheduler, all the admissions nurses, the weekend LPN, two social workers, and some others. This means that the case managers are going to have to now do their own admissions, schedule their own HHAs, and take call for 3 counties every night and every weekend. I hear the administration has been having to borrow money to pay everyone's paychecks. In a way I'm glad to be out of there but I'll miss the job.

Just thought I'd update!

Geez,

I am so sorry to hear that. It is not often that a nurse gets laid off, of course I have often dreamt of it!!;) When I was doing a triage/call center job from home, they did away with the at home nurses. It wasn't that big of a deal as it was only $11/hr and part time, but it still is not what you want to hear when you like your job. Of course, I believe everything happens for a reason and I am sure the reason for you will be clear very soon.

Best wishes,

Lisa

Yep, time to move on. They'll soon find out they shouldn't have let all those nurses go,

because the ones they did keep aren't going to put up with all those demands for such a piddly little paycheck.

I figure if I have to work hard I may as well get paid for it, therefore I seek the best paying job I can find.
