Yes, Peggy35, it is as bad as you think. While I don't really like the company I work for, I can't c/o about the salary. I get a straight salary that essentially covers my hours from 8-5. Call pay is $25/day for weekdays, $50 for weekend and holiday. If I make visits outside of my required quota, after hours, on weekends or during call, then I get an extra after-hours per-visit rate. Mileage is paid at $0.42 per mile. I will never be able to go back to straight per-visit pay again, it's just not worth it when you're the primary case manager. There's just too much that doesn't get captured in the visit time/rate--all those tedious calls to docs, sending faxes, arranging with DME companies, the minutiae that no one really thinks about.
And a comment about the paper OASIS--I've done both paper and computer and find our current computer system to be absolutely longer and more time-consuming than paper, but it does the job of double-checking for errors. As much as I gripe about the computer system (and all that's wrong with it), I don't think I could go back to all-paper, either.
