Home Health Continuous Care (LPN) Where do you draw the line with non - skilled tasks

  1. Hi All,
    I just recently picked up a home health continuous care assignment for a home heath agency. The position is on nights and while a tad bit boring I find the spouse has me doing chores like laundry, sweeping the floors, washing dishes etc. I'm wondering where do we draw the line? I'm new to the home health setting as a nurse (did it previously as a CNA) and I've understood it that nurses aren't supposed to do household chores....is this true? The agency sort of lets this client call the shots as they are long standing clients, they even required I give out my cell/home number to the spouse....
