I just started working with an agency doing private duty (pd). I have never done pd ever, so I know very little about it. I found out the agency I work for is not licensed as a private duty agency. This makes me curious how I can legally go to the home and give treatment without a licensed agency or overseeing DR. Doesn't this put me at risk for being sued because I am technically out there on my own? RN's can not work independently....can they? I see people on the PD threads talking about getting provider numbers. What is that about?
Thank you so much for your help!!!
