Hiring a nurse as an independent contractor

  1. Does anyone know if in CT I can get private duty cases and then contract independently with nurses. I don't want to hire them. I want to find them business and get a cut. They will have there own malpractice and have to report their own income. For example, Mrs. S pays me like a vna private fee and I pay a nurse to give her a shot every day. Can we do that? What about paperwork for the nurse that gives the shot. Thanks for any insight.

    Sounds like you need to do a little more research and really look into this. You say you would not be hiring them, but you would be and if they are contracting thru you then you would need insurance and a business structure and have to have some way to bill out insurance, etc. Generally to bill insurances you need to be JAHCO certified.
