Lets talk about $$$ - page 2
Ok guys, I just want to essentially take a survey of what people are making in Home Health. Basically to show the regional disparities and to make sure everyone is getting a fair and equal paycheck... Read More
Apr 6, '13Not employed here, but I like your idea so I posted a simliar thread to Hospice Nursing. I assume it pays less, but have no clue, really.
Apr 6, '13BTW- what is a visit? I can comprehend an intake, which I suppose an RN would do, would take some time. Is a visit a task, a part of an hour, a set time? Thanks.
Apr 6, '13Quote from SuzieVNIt is not a set time. It's as long as it takes to do what you're going in to do. Intakes have to do be done by RNs, at least at my agency. I've had visits that take as little as 10-15 minutes if they're for a simple injection or a BP/O2 sat check. Sometimes visits can be an hour or longer but most of my visits last about 30-45 minutes.BTW- what is a visit? I can comprehend an intake, which I suppose an RN would do, would take some time.

Apr 6, '13Thanks. I'd suppose you come up with various means of escape excuses for those folks that are lonely...and want to tie you down?
Apr 6, '13I work in Washington. I'm paid per hour 34.19 get 0.55 per mile. I have health insurance provided for me with the option to buy for my family. I work for a hospital agency.
Apr 6, '13Quote from SuzieVNThe month i did work home health, I felt the number of visits were more important than quality of care. This is thee exact reason I came back to hospice. Home health expected me to see a minimum of 6 people a day. Hospice is NOTHING like that....some days I see 5-6, but most of the time I only see 2-4. Of course oir visits last much longer, as we are there not only for the pt but for family. I never got to really establish a relationship with my HH pts.Thanks.

And, yes, in home health you have to get in and out, in order to make any money (bc generally paid by the visit).
Apr 6, '13Quote from SuzieVNA regular skilled nursing visit usually takes 30-45 minutes, depending on what the needs of the patient may be.BTW- what is a visit? I can comprehend an intake, which I suppose an RN would do, would take some time. Is a visit a task, a part of an hour, a set time? Thanks.
For a Start of Care, which is probably like your intake, it's anywhere from 45 min to almost 2 hours in the home, again depending on the patient.

Salarly- I work full time (not per diem or per visit) I get $28 an hour for a set 40 hrs a week. I am expected to see an average of 5-6 pts a day, we also are responsible for the majority of all of our pts case coordination and home health aide and LPN supervision as well...its a lot. Also this is new grad salary
Benefits- working for a small agency health insurance is offered but for a high price (i believe 400 a month) which i do not pay and get elsewhere. also offered vision and dental which i do use yet but will soon, i believe price is MUCH lower
Perks- nothing really...its been discussed about being provided with tablets once we go electronic soon (thank god) but im not sure if that will come through. I get $0.40 per mile. drive a newer jeep compass and this covers gas prices but not much more (such oil changes or maintenence). generally i claim 200-500 miles per 2 week pay period (some of my visits are 18-30 miles apart and must be seen in that order... )
