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 at the end of the day. I... Read More

    Not 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.

    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.

    It 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.

    Thanks. I'd suppose you come up with various means of escape excuses for those folks that are lonely...and want to tie you down?

    The 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.

    And, yes, in home health you have to get in and out, in order to make any money (bc generally paid by the visit).
