We average 22-33 on a caseload. We see 5-6 patients a day, "productivity" supposed to be 5 point something. Been known of course to see 7, throw in phone visits, of course calls to MD, insurance companies, etc. Average 40-100 miles a day, for me anyway, as I do half a county for OB. Others at our agency I'm not sure. My day is always: phone calls in am, rush to do BID visits, see the rest, fit in phone calls and other case management, home by 4:30 or 5, start on paperwork, eat, back to paperwork, and depending how bad things were that day have been known to be doing paperwork up till 9-10pm. It's been tough lately, as we changed charting softwear in October. It's been a major hassle, nothing but glitches. I'm pretty computer savvy, so that's not the problem. I do as much paperwork in the home as possible without it seeming as if my attention is more on the computer than on my patient. But it is so detailed, and the softwear is so bloated and bogs the computer down, everything is so slow. It makes everything 10x slower. I was so excited to start it, and it's been a thorn in our collective sides since we started up in it.
However, a change is in store for me. I got fed up and turned in my resignation. In all seriuosness. My boss has offerred me a break from the field, a possible job in office. If it is available, I may take her up on it, as all in all, we have an excellent agency which really does go to bat for their emplyees. Things are tough now. In our community they are tough everywhere. But at least our management tries. They listen, and don't just blow us off. In my case, my manager realizes I am sufferring from depression, and have come off a bad year mentally and physically, and that I need something to ease up, or else I will fall. And she is willing to work with me. How can I beat that?
Anyway, I went off track there....apologies.
