    I was wondering if anyone knows where I can locate some productivity requirement scales...The agency where I work has just come up w/ a points system but it doesn't account for ...travel time, IV's, Lab draws, extensive/complex wound care/wound vac, or training of new field staff!!
    I am so frustrated, that I am considering going back to hospital employment.
    An admit or post-hosp.=2pts, a d/c or recert=1.5 and re-evals & sup. visits w/
    skill=1....I suppose routine visits count as 1 as well, but they don't assign those to RN's. We have a 50 mile radius, and often except people w/in 60!
    I work 30 hrs/week, and extra on weekends. I have been told I should be doing 23 points per week...I have been doing 10 admits=20pts, and some office wk(I was actually hired to be the nurse educator/ new staff trainer. I have been training the new RN's on the computer system,and in the field while doing my 20 pts....I already take computer/paper work home, and almost never leave wk on time! I can't believe they expect more!!! Sorry for being a cry baby... Please send any productivity scales, any advice, ANYTHING!!!!!
    not a cry baby
    and ours works like this
    every 15min we drive is one point
    every regular visit is 4 points
    admissions are 9, discharges are 8, recerts are 8
    and we as suppose to get atleast 32 points in 8 hours
    no points for meetings/labs etc
