Job Description for Hospice Administrator

A hospice administrator's responsibilities are primarily managerial and commonly include overseeing the hiring and firing of new workers, keeping the facility financially stable, and ensuring that proper care is provided to all residents. Because this administrative position is performed primarily in an office through paperwork and making outside contacts, hospice administrators should expect to meet with any managers who work in the facility. Generally, they have little to no contact with nurses or caretakers outside of hiring, firing, or pay changes, so they must depend on reports from the managers regarding quality of work and care.
