    I have been working at Teamhealth as a triage nurse for 6 yrs. I really enjoy the work and love the people I work with. The work is different from direct patient, but just as fullfilling. The company is growing which is always a positive sign. I hope that you enjoy the job.

    I do think that I will really like it. I am going to start part-time because I have other commitments that keep me from working 3 weekends per month. My training class starts on February 11th. Are you in Knoxville?

    I have put in an application with TeamHealth, but haven't heard back from them. Could one of you who works there answer a question for me? I would like to know if the WAH equipment needed, such as the computer and phone set-up, is furnished for those who are hired? I have both call center and WAH experience, and all of the necessary equipment was furnished by the employer when I worked from home. I recently interviewed for a job with CareNet, also a WAH nurse triage company, and was surprised to learn that I would have to supply my own PC. I only have a MacBook, so that didn't work for me. If anyone can answer this question for me, I would really appreciate it! Also, can you give me at least a ballpark idea of the hourly pay rate?

    Thanks so much!

    Yes, I am still there. I love the job, but the hours are all evenings and weekends. If you can handle working those hours, it's a great job!

    To work from home, you have to buy your own phone. They supply the computer. I am not working from home, yet.

    do they atleast reimburse you for usage of your own phone. I would imagine you would need unlimited minutes on your plan.

    I am very interested in getting into telephonic triage. Any other companies besides team health and care net you can recommend oohing into.

    Hi, idk if you are still following this thread, arg928, but I am considering a position with TeamHealth call center. I have never worked in a call center before and was wondering how it all works. Specifically, does the triage computer program tell you EVERYTHING to say? I am worried about liability. Is any nursing judgement required or is it all pretty much spelled out for you as far as what to ask and how to respond/what to recommend? Thanks!

    oldfaithful, the guideline pretty much tells you everything you need to say. We also have approved websites and documents called "exit care" that we can pull information from and note the source (website) that we obtained it from. You will need to use some nursing judgment. I love the job!

    Arg928, thanks for the quick reply and useful info! Glad you like it because it sounded like there was a high turn-over rate and it made me a little cautious. I have had 3 years of hands on experience (med/surg and nursing home) but have been out of the field for 5 years. That's why I was wondering about how much judgement was involved, since I'm a little rusty. What is your opinion on that? Do you think that would effect my ability to perform this job well? Also, what type of patients do you deal with most? Is it stressful work? Lol, sorry so many questions! Thanks

    I don't think there is that much turnover. I've been there over a year now, and I can only think of a handful of nurses who have quit. There are a few there that have been there 5 years or longer. We have around 50-60 nurses, so some turnover is to be expected.

    I think the 1st 3 months would be hard, it was hard for me to get comfortable with phone triage for the 1st few months. I think you would be able to do it, though. We talk to a lot of parents about sick kids, lots of coughing, vomiting, diarrhea, colds, and things like that. It is much less stressful than any nursing job I have ever had. Working from home is the best, too!
