I'm in the same boat Sue, I have to call in 2 hours before every shift I've signed up for to see if they need me and then if I get called off I still have to be available for an additional 4 hours - no pay.
Since I'm working as a patient sitter right now the pay to begin with is really low.
I've also considered Hospice, the older I get the more atractive it gets and is a good place for LPN's. But with all the changes in the health care system, I'm wondering how those visits are going to be financed? There's a hospice house less than a mile from me and I'm tempted to go visit to see if they've any openings but it's in house and really tiny, no benefits - not like I have them now but I will once my 6 month sentence is over and I can apply to full time work.
Decades ago I loved Ortho, but we didn't get spill over as we were rural enough with lots of outdoor activities that kept us full up and back then we had tons of lower back pains in tractions for weeks on end
Soooo Howz TX??????????
