Home Health Care in Colorado Springs
- 0Feb 2, '12 by churchsgirlHas anyone worked for Professional Home Health Care Inc. in Colorado Springs? I have an interview with them tomorrow. Wondering what they are like to work for? So far the lady I have been in contact with seems really nice. Anything about the agency would be appreciated. Thank you

- 1Feb 13, '12 by churchsgirlI was offered the job; however, I did not accept. They were only going to give me 2 days of orientation and as a new grad I knew that was just not going to be enough. Plus they advertise as $28/hr, BUT it is $28 a visit, AND if Medicare considers it a "short" visit it was only $16 something/hr. I wasn't going to risk my license just for a paycheck....didn't seem worth it!
- 0Feb 28, '12 by LuLu2008You probably made a wise choice. I worked for a while in home health care and the routine visit -- even if it took 1 hour or more -- always required paperwork that was time consuming. Many nurses did the paperwork quickly but I chose to be more thorough. The traveling in this city is very time consuming, too, because the city is so spread out. I wish you well.
- 0Feb 28, '12 by churchsgirlThank you, I appreciate it! It is rough for a new grad here If I don't have anything by April I will be either moving (away from my husband) two hours north to work for my mom. She is a DON in Fort Collins and she will hopefully have a full time position by then...get some work experience then try and get in somewhere in the Springs. If that doesn't pan out, I am going to have no choice but to live with a friend in Texas (away from my husband) where I graduated from. In Texas new grads start in the ER, ICU...you name it. I really want to work in MED/SURG-I like being busy and I want to learn more We shall see, I guess....

I can tell you that the hospitals in the Springs are not the best from a nursing point of view. And don't start in a nursing home or long term care facility or you will become pigeonholed. Good luck!
