    I left intermittent visit work when my one visit was so far away that I had to get money from other sources to put gas in my car to make the visit. I won't go back to intermittent visit work. In contrast, a former coworker averaged 13-14 routine visits a day and said she had 16 visit days under her belt. She acknowledged five minute visits that were documented at longer duration and she mixed her visits between three agencies. I highly doubt she even visited any of those clients at all. I think she checked in on them over the phone and charted a visit. She kept this behavior up for years without getting caught. I don't recommend it.
    This fraudulent behavior is the reason for the ever increasing heavy regulation. Next time anyone is frustrated with the amount of paperwork and hoops in home health, thank a colleague.

    Have only encountered one or two agencies where I did not run across an individual or two who actively engaged in fraud by way of manipulating their time sheets. Particularly bad when the client gives the instructions and their blessing to do so. I give them the warning that they, too, can suffer when the fraud is dealt with, and it is no wonder that my days on that extended care case are short-lived. The nurses engaging in fraud carry on, the client carries on, and the employer continues to operate with its head in the sand.
