per diem hospice per visit rate
- 0Sep 15, '13 by PeacockMaidenI'm going to interview for a per diem hospice that pays by the visit. I am new to hospice work, so I have no idea what decent compensation would be.
I'm in northern California. So if anyone is aware of various visit rates, I'd love to hear it.
- 0Sep 27, '13 by PeacockMaidenI haven't heard back from the company yet, but even if they offer me a job, I don't think I'll take it. They pay by the visit, and when you figure in the huge amount of documentation and the uncompensated travel time, I don't think this particular job will be worth it.
As far as questions, you will want to brush up on palliative care measures and meds given. If you have wound care experience, stress that. They also gave me scenarios and asked me how I would respond.
- 0Sep 27, '13 by PeacockMaidenI'm in Northern CA. The per visit rate was $55 for revisit and $90 for a start of care visit. No mileage compensation.
I don't think doing hospice is in the cards for me right now. I am currently doing a post master's adult/gero NP program, so I can't be available M-F like they required.
