    We found new homes for the patients that needed continued care. We made visits on all patients until this past Friday 2/24/07, if they needed it. We then transferred them over. We will tie up loose ends until 2/28/07 then that will be the end. Where one door closes, another door opens. Thanks for the support.

    just an fyi. got a great new position as the home care coordinator with a long term care program for elders (a pace (medicaid) program-program for all inclusive care for elderly). i have only been doing orientation but i am very excited about this position and look forward to great things in this position. thank you all for your support.
    welcome to my neck of the woods! i do long term hh. i like it as i have had most of my pt's now for years and really get to know them well. my pt's consider me "family" although i know when to be the nagging nurse!
    [color=#483d8b]good luck with all of it!

    How do you like the actual position? Home health care provides such flexibility and this, while flexible, is within an 8 hour day. I know on my part, it will take some getting used to. Any tips?

    get a routine set early. let them know to respect your time. elderly people are much better about that. i have a lot of younger,chronically ill pt's and they are harder to keep home for my visits sometimes!

    [color=#483d8b]get your charting done each visit as you do the visit and don't let it pile up. get a system going. ask more experience hh nurses for their advice on paperwork systems/charting tips.
