I recently interviewed at a hospice agency and was wondering if anyone can tell me if this sounds reasonable/managable?
RN with a total of 10 hospice patients. Must see each patient at least one time per week (8-5 monday thru friday) and possibly more depending on acuity/pt and family needs. RN is responsible for case management as well. RN is on weekend call every 5th weekend. RN is on back up call 2 times per week with LPN on primary call. This is a salary position with mileage included and on call pay additional.
Also, can someone explain what the difference is between case management and field RN? It seems to me that they are one in the same but I do see that some companies have RNs hired as case managers
