I currently live a half hour from a home health visit and the visit only takes 1 hr- 1 1/2 hrs. I didn't realize it was a half an hour away so I called back within 5 minutes to say I didn't want to take it ( I have a choice). But the staffer already called the family to let them know I would take them on a regular basis once a week so she wouldn't let me "unassign" myself at that point. I have no other clients really near him to make it worthwhile either. I also live in a the cities
Well, I'm moving soon and the visit will soon be 44 minutes long, 27 miles, and I live where it snows a lot in the winter so it could be longer some days. Am I screwed or can I get out of it? Should I talk to my manager if the staffer won't let me or will it look like I'm not a team player?
Lastly, my client has dementia/mood disorder so extremely agitated at times...so that alone makes it a burnout visit. I get paid per visit and mileage based on the current govt. rate.
