    So you make right around $14/hr?
    And pay for your own mileage and automobile maintenance?
    With no benefits.
    That seems really really low to me.

    And I notice from another thread that you are wondering if you should purchase patient supplies yourself???

    I am getting concerned.

    Wound vac usually 1hr, sometime more for multiple wound vac.

    SOC 2.5 hrs
    You do a one hour visit for $14? For real? That's absurd.

    Yes I know, I'm not at all happy with this situation.
    As you know im in the process of making my footprint, and then I can have better leverage, but I am acutely aware that I'm being screwed.

    This is interesting... Keep em' coming. I'm curious to know the amount of experience in HH that you have as well. I'm a new grad, wonder if $25 is fair.

    This sounds fair if this is an hourly rate, but make sure if you receive mileage, extra pay for SOC ROC revert, also if you have access to educational material it a clinical educator and not just you tube.

    $770 for my first 12 units, $41/unit for each one after. Revisits/wound care are 1 unit, SOC/ROC are 2.5 units. We get paid 45 cents per mile. This is in NJ, and I'm brand new to home care.

    I never GIVE patients my cell number. They get it from caller ID and keep it.

    I prevent this by blocking my number when I call. All it takes is to dial star 67 at the beginning of the number. When I put their number into my contacts list, I always start with star 67.
