Hospice Reviews for VITAS Healthcare

I am a past client of this provider

VITAS was fantastic. When my mom was in an assisted living, they were helping her out and provided hospice care for her. I had 2 or 3 that I particularly liked and they all treated her very kindly. They talk to us for hours when we spent time there with my husband. They were very attentive to her. My mom couldn't eat nor drink. She was in pain and was having trouble breathing. They would give her breathing treatments. If she is in pain, they would take care of that. They always wash her up and put a clean night gown on. They change their beddings and change her position every now and then.

Vitas completely and utterly failed my husband and me.He didn't have cancer or months to live. Taken off dialysis, with CHF, he had a short time to live and they NEVER got their act together despite promising 24/7 attention. Sent "floaters", temps, kept promising to assess him but never did or sent an RN. Sent absolutely wrong medical equipment (Fleets enemas x8 for a man who had fecal incontinence!), phone rang 14 times when I called when he passed away with only me with him. Disinterested person who finally answered said if was Saturday night, and nobody there (they never got a team together), and sent a part-time social worker, who was good, but no hospice care at all for the 6 days he lingered at home before dying. Dreadfully incompetent and uncaring. The chaplain called after I sent a letter describing the events. He left a message on my phone to get in touch with him at any time for grief counseling. I called the next day - he had gone on vacation and would be back in two weeks. Typical of my whole experience with Vitas "Innovative Care".

I love VITAS. VITAS was there for us when my mother passed away. I can not speak more highly for the nurses who went out of their way to help us during this stressfull time. I highly recommend VITAS when and if you need Hospice services.
