Hi guys! Im new to this site! I'm a home health nurse and have been for about 4 months...and i am already burnt out on home health. i love my patients but i keep up with 40 patients a week. i have to make sure they are scheduled out each week plus i have to make sure they have enough orders etc. Half the time, i do not even see a lot of my patients because we admit everyone And i am covering other peoples patients because they are on call. I drive a hundred miles everyday, am out for 8 to 10 hrs everyday , and chart for 2 to 3 hrs each night. Sorry to vent, i am just over it! When I have way too many patients on my schedule, due to supervisor adding to it, supervisor says, figure it out. Im on call all the time and cover 6 counties all by myself when im on call. Again I'm sorry to vent so much, I just wanted to ask you all how your home health agency runs things. I'm Contemplating going back to the hospital.
