Has 13 years experience.

I will take any and all advice. 
All I know is that it’s a 2yo girl and I’m having a meet and greet with mom and between us, we are going to agree on days and times I can work the case. 
Also, I believe the agency mentioned I would be doing the admission. 

So an admission with my first home health case.

NRSKarenRN, BSN, RN

Specializes in Vents, Telemetry, Home Care, Home infusion. Has 44 years experience.

Sorry, but a brand new employee should not be doing a Private Duty Home Health admission, unless  previously worked with Pediatric HH population.

Lots to an admission, including assessment,  care plan development, medication assessment and management, PCP orders, etc.  Should be an experienced staff/Supervisor performing the admit.
