  3. Home Health a good option for single mom?
    Yes. It will require time management skills but it is doable. You will need a back up plan for those days it doesn't work. I would suggest being honest with your employer about your availability.

  9. No training on OASIS - new to home health
    All of that sounds very unprofessional. I would not be comfortable putting my license on the line. My company pays for everything: mileage, mi-fi, cell phone, laptop, and .55 per mile.

  10. Paid amount per visits

  20. Company car, pros and cons?
