Last week I worked at 5 different homes in 6 days. My agency does not put a "main" nurse at any case, they prefer to schedule at LEAST 10-12 nurses per case every month (as per MAR signatures). While the variety of work can be nice, it's very hard to become proficient with a case quickly. Parents lament to me that they feel like their homes are revolving doors, and they are constantly having to update nurses over and over and over, to be sure everyone gets new information when it comes up. They generally prefer having a small handful of staff for their children, so they can have consistency, plus feel more comfortable in their own homes. However on the flip side, there's a very low incidence of unstaffed shifts. It's much easier for the agency to fill them in a pinch.
What does your agency do? Are you a regular nurse at the same case most or all the time, or do you float all over the area like I do? What do you like/dislike about the way you work?
