Excellent suggestion MMJ! I've done that line of work and like traditional home health, you really do drive your own schedule, and a good client match is more like hanging out with a friend than work

@Davey Do, I love the Goofy, IL. My grandson loves Goofy and has given the picture his stamp of approval

The more I thought about this- the more I realized that the REASON I enjoyed it so much (it has always been my second job- vent dependent peds) is that there is TIME to do all the fluff and buff that you want to do but never have time for in the hospital world. That, to me, was the most satisfying thing, and the relationships. Just today, the mom of one of my former vent kids (1#1oz at birth, 15 months in NICU) sent me a pic of him riding his scooter in the driveway during lockdown.

My first and only night at the LTC facility was to be an orientation, but once I found my way, I worked the entire shift providing direct and skilled nursing care and doing some paper charting.

I'm not saying that was bad, as I enjoy all aspects of nursing, but the shift was understaffed. I was told there would be a CNA for each of the three halls, and an RN. Two CNAs were scheduled and the four of us worked all night in providing care.

I did not orientate per se, and other simple thing to set up things I was told would be in place by the time I oriented were not. Too many red flags.

I did enjoy providing what care I could, however.

Davey - I worked a whole year in LTC and gained a new respect for all they do!

Oh, I respect what they do, Hppy, when they do what they're suppose to do. I worked in LTC as a new LPN back in '84 and again as an RN in '95-'96 as one of three jobs.

The RN and CNAs I worked with that night were hard workers and I got along really well with them. But it was the same ole same ole when it came to management: "We won't fulfill our commitment to you and not give you the tools you need in order to do your job, but expect you to fulfill your obligation."

I do not want to do that anymore. And now I have a choice, in that I don't have to do that anymore.
