How many other jobs are there where the employer is demented yet has the "right" to direct the "employee" in the job duties, yet neither the employer nor employee is in control, but rather standards of practice are the determining factor?
How many other jobs where the "employee" is expected to handle the employer's body fluids and related physical, mental, emotional, psychic, familial, financial, material, and karmic $#!+ with a smile while maintaining "discrete" universal precautions covering every area?
How many other jobs where if the employee obeys the employer, the employee is likely to end up in jail and the employer in a coffin?
How many other jobs where the employee must do everything, advertise, set up the job, do all tasks, management, paperwork, everything -- because if the employer were able to do any of that, the employee would not need to be hired in the first place?
The list is endless for this strange limbo nook of nursing known as in-home caregiving!
