Hi everyone! Just wondering if anyone is doing home health travel nursing in Florida?
Which agency do u work for? Certainly does not seem right, not ur fault they dont have the units during the week for u!
I am pay per visit, am i reading this correctly, is it a federal regualtion to pay for travel time????
Anyone work for Pinnacle Home Care? Heard they have a very good reputation.,,
I didnt know what the tube actually looked like either, so i googled it
thank goodness for google!
I have had pts with the pleurex cath in for a longggggggg time, the dr has removed the sutures tho, as the cath has that end that it cant come out.
Considering relocating to the gulf coast if florida, looking like 45 min either side of tampa.
anyone do HH in that general area? Any advise?
Does anyone know if florid has plans to join the other compact states
thanks in advance
I am interested also, the class is never offered locally for me either, but can u tell me how u found the local testing center?
Any qualified discipline can complete a transfer (sn, pt, ot st) and reg state it does not have to be someone that saw the patiet.
Ie-- an office nurse/therapist can complete it
Ok, what am i doing wrong,,,,,,drawing labs off of a picc line, the same as i always have, but recently i have been getting called fprom the lab with the dreaded "spec has hemolized" , i get the spec to the lab within 30 min so i know its not that, the flow sometimes is slow, other than that i follow the proper procedure...any tips???
I have been in HH 28 yrs, and my simple ans to this question is NO! If u cover all the bases this job is basically never ending, you r either finishing up today or preparing for tomorrow.
I literally have about 2 hrs of free time a day, HH has evolved so much over the yrs that it no longer lime it was, i nonestly sont see now any one with young children that require attention or rides here and there can do it.
Bless each and everyone of us!
SOC date can not change unless the pt has been discharged. The date u get orders for your recert is the verbal order date, not a new SOC date,
If this is new, which i doubt, we have not been doing it
I have been in HH FOR 28 yrs and soc date is soc date period.
Date of last visit is last week, date of discharge is the date u do the oasis, visit findings are based on the last vist
I did 2 soc today, spent about 1 hr 15 min in the home, 1 hr 30 min on documentation and 30-40 min of travel, so usually 3 to 3.5 hrs per soc
