I posted this on another thread. You should read this before you go into home care. The paperwork is not the biggest problem, its time management, especially if you are going to work full-time.
When I was a field nurse, I was very aggravated about the amount of work/ hours I was putting in. But then a manager brought this to my attention: If you are a salary 40 hr/week nurse, you owe the company 40 hrs of work. Just like other jobs, the 8 hrs doesn't start until you get to work. In your case, it starts when you get to the first patients home or your office, and ends when you leave the last patients home. Driving back home doesn't count as part of the time. Deduct any time that you stopped to eat, go to the bank or ran errands, etc. That is not part of the 40 hrs. Also, if you document at home, the time doesn't start until you sit at that desk. Getting up to take care of the kids or start dinner doesn't count.
After my manager explained this to me, I really kept track of work time. And to my dismay, I found that I was only working 40 hrs. My problems were that I was starting too late in the morning, running a couple of quick errands in my travels, and stopping too early so that my documentation wasn't done at the end of the day. Then, I had to make up time on the weekends.
On a positive note, home care is extremely rewarding. You are really able to make a difference in a patients life and that feels pretty good!
