case manager

Published

Do your NICU's have case managers? -- What sorts of things are they responsible for? Most of what I read about case management seems to apply to insurance companies and involves lots of phone calls! What does it look like inside the NICU?

Well then it sounds terrible. :( People have suggested that I might enjoy that position because I enjoy working with the families -- but nothing I can find indicates there would be much of that. We currently don't use case managers so I have no idea what the job would entail. Of course if I pursue it I will ask lots of questions -- but for now I'm just trying to get some general idea of what their expectations might be for such a role.

Our hospital case managers set up things like home care equipment, home nurse visits and make sure the kids are on the insurance plans they need I be on.
