  1. I thought I would tell you since I am pretty settled in my new job of DME sales of incontinence supplies I am probably going to do some PRN work on weekends for a home health company. I think that I miss the hands on and I did home health 11 years so I think it is in my blood.

    Just thought I would let you know. Now I have to decide if I want to do private duty or certified. The thought of no OASIS does sound inviting.

    KP No I turf out home health consulting to a friend of mine. Way to much travel. I was licensed in eight states and was never home. I will still keep my full time job in incontinence sales Monday through Friday but work just per diem. Maybe with Kelly Home Care. I know you have Kelly in Cleveland. I know the regional nursing director. Do you work certified?

    I'm missing patient care too--since short staffed I've been working every other weekend so haven't been able to pick up weekend visits--should be able to do that by June.

    What do you want? Private duty case with shift staffing that you can just slot your self in-- able to do notes during lul time; family dynamics to deal with

    or

    Perdiem visits with completion paperwork after you leave.

    When kids young, I did perdiem evening IV visits as needed---really fit in well. Been toying with idea of returning to that 4 eve month just to keep up IV skills.

    Let us in on what they're offering.

    I was offered today 40 per visit for uncertified cases that being per visit for private duty or insurance. Medi planners, blood draws. Anything hourly is 37 per hour. Darn good........

    Karen I know that was good. I tried to keep the big smile off my face. Their private bill rate for a nurse must be higher than most. I was not expecting it. I actually thought it would be lower than my last pay for per diem visits.

    Karen and hoolahan. I am so irritated. My new boss said no employee can moonlight. Had us sign a new policy forbidding it. GRRRRRRR.
