    Did you have a low skill pt. or high skill pt? I know what you mean loosing your skills cause i felt like that w/ one of the pt's i had so i asked for a high skil pt. So for me, i feel i get all the skills that i want, from IV therapy to wound care, injections, G-Tube, trach, etc. Plus I do alot of visits for the agency too. But maybe its not for you. N ya I have several Friends that work for palm valley in Mcallen. :spin:
