    I have finished 3 days orientation in home health and so far I'm loving it. The freedom is wonderful after being couped up in the hospital for 12 hours at a time without a break.

    I keep hearing the term "OASIS" what is it and how does it apply to a HH nurse? Thanks!

    I am considering an opening at a local home health agency and it states "NO Oasis". I understand what Oasis is but would it not be a requirement for all HH agencies and what circumstances would it not be utilized?

    Anyone who does not accept Medicare or Medicaid payment for home health cases would not require an OASIS assessment to be done. It is possible some private health insurers might require an OASIS or similiar assessment tool before they would pay for community based home care.
