My husband and I recently started an home health agency and are in the process of being survey. I was wondering if there are tips, words of wisdom, encouragement.
I have combined 17yr of experience as both a staff nurse and management in the hospital, but I'm it is starting to get overwhelming. I'm stunned by the amount of paperwork, writing, follow-up, tracking down physicians, rules/regulations, etc. I thought management in the hospital was difficult but this is really challenging. I know it is partially due to the amount of materials I've had to learn with the past year and because it is my business.
I was also looking for advice on how you stay organize, any monitoring tools/aids that help you stay on top of deadline. For example, how do you track upcoming recertifications, orders that require signature, meetings, or performance improvement projects or reports. As stated earlier, my past nursing experiences have been in the hospital setting, this is new to me.
Any information is greatly appreciated.
PS- Any one knows of a post fall assessment form or website that offers free patient fall education pamphlet
