Do you not have computers in your agency?
We do for Hospice and I have my notes in before I leave the pts home.
I hear you on only having 14 patients but gawd that can run you ragged. I have 14 in Hospice at the moment and like you most are 30-65 miles apart so my van is clocking the miles up big time.
Sounds like you are doing a great job and I am thrilled that your preceptor phones you. I do the same thing for the staff that I train. It is always nice to know you have a back up.
My LPN has been in Europe the last 2 weeks (yeah the cheek of her LOL) so it has been tough going for this little lady.
Hmmm evil thought here. Deb comes back I go off hahahahaha I only but WISH.
Do you have a ceiling on how many patients you can take?
Ours is 12 for Case Managers but me being greedy like more LOL I love to keep busy but I have to say I am almost stretched at the moment due to the acuity of patients. We seldom do IVI's but my AIDS patient is.
I wish you well on your first weekend on call and pray it is a kind one for you. Not TOO many call outs.
Funny thing is I love my call shifts. Yeah I have been told I am sick.
