    Hello, everyone. Im researching opening a home health agency in NC, too. It seems like it will be a change. Anyone have any help or advice for someone who is not even at step one? Thanks

    Hello. This has been an interesting & helpful thread. My situation is this: I am a RN and have been doing Homecare for 5 yrs in the field. I recently was offered a DON position at a new Homecare agency. The problem is how do I know what the surveyors will be looking for? (they are already in the final stages and survey is coming up in Dec for Medicare).

    I know what forms I have used in the field but being in the office is a whole other thing! I'm also not sure about what absolutely has to be in the chart, what kind of questions will be asked, etc. Any help will be much, much appreciated!!

    Help! Help!

    Being an LPN would you not need an RN to oversee the charting? I work for a home care agency and need to be overseen by an RN.

    Contact a consultants. They get you licensed, accredited. They make life easy. If you want anything on ALFs I am not sure though, these seem to only be for home health care and home care agencies. Good luck.
