Weekend workRegister Today!
- by xoNurseRNxo Aug 12, '12I new to HH, was wondering if in your HH agency it's common to do SOC on weekends??
- Aug 13, '12 by krittiebrnVERY common. Sat and Sun. Some agencies have a 24 or 48 hour policy of Admit after the referral has been received.
- Aug 14, '12 by nurseklgYES! My agency does SOCs on weekends and emergency visits only.
- Aug 14, '12 by KateRN1Yup, most SOCs happen Fri, Sat, and Sun. Medicare gives the agency 48 hours from the time of the referral to do the SOC, so if it comes in on Friday, SOC is happening by Sunday unless you get a physician-ordered SOC date.
