I do home hospice and Palliative care, although my agency seems to stick me with all the palliatives, although hospice is really what I want to do.
Anyways, how long is your average visit? My patients seem to be so complicated, they are averaging 45 min to an hour, with a lot of emotional support.
Am I spending too long? I do an average of 4 visits a day, with what seems to be 2-3 palliative admissions a week. We are all on paper, with extensive charting. I case manage about 12 patients right now.
Trying to figure out if I should really be cutting down my visit time because I am not getting my work done and really, really am sick of taking so much work home.
