I'm very thankful for VNA California they were there for my mother and my family during the hardest time of our lives and made us feel very supported and loved, the nurses were amazing, compassionate and very caring. Thank You to all the staff that helped my mother live her last days as comfortably and peacefully as she could. God Bless them.

Who would have thought that you need to yelp a hospice organization? I have heard nothing but good stories coming from Hospice. Unfortunately for my mother, we had nothing but horrible care. They came out the day my mother came home from the hospital and told me that ANYTHING i need I would just need to call and they would take care of it. My first call was that night when I needed diapers. I was told to get in the car and go to Walgrens. The nurses don't have any. The second call at 5 in the morning requesting diapers, (because I couldn't leave my dying mother to go buy some) I was told the same thing!! My mother was only on Hospice for 13 days. I never had continuity of care, meaning I never ever saw the same nurse twice. My mother had an open wound that needed cleaning and changing daily. They said I needed to do it. My last call on Easter was requesting chucks (pads under patient) again I was told to go to the store. During all of this, my brother called Debbie Thompson, the supervisor, and related to her all the problems I was having. She assured him she would call me and handle it. She never called. After my mother passed, I called Debbie everyday for several days asking her to call me. She finally did and truthfully............this woman DOES NOT CARE about helping families or quality of care. Run as fast as you can from this HOSPICE

Went to his doctor two days after the first nurse came and dressed his wound and our doctors nurse said WHO THE HELL PUT THESE BANDAGES ON YOU! run as fast as you can from this company.

encountered the most rudest nurse i have ever worked with in my entire 9 years of healthcare work.this nurse named debbie who is assigned to a cancer patient of mine in riverside. i called her after waiting an hour for the on call nurse to call me back because my patient has only 1 ml of morphine left.this patient is in pain and needs morphine every hour. i called her after one of the nurse whos name and number written in the book didn't answer.as soon as she answered i apologized for calling late (9 pm) but i needed to know if its ok to just give the lorazepam. she started being rude telling me why i called her at this hour repeatedly and that its wrong to let the medicine be this low.mind you i told her i came in at 7 pm and gave the dose at 8 pm.she could have told me to call the office because she is off the clock and wont be able to help me. in the field we choose to be in we need to have compassion,understanding and love fpr what we do.i wonder how ypu treat people in your everyday life and the people you take care off.cause you ma'am lack compassion and a great deal of helpfullness.i can be off but when a family or my patient calls me for a question i dont act rude and make them feel stupid.i treat my patient and there family and caregivers family.i hope ypu dont treat people like that al the time specially your patients that is dying. vna needs more nurses who are very compassionate and really do care for what they do.
