I work in Illinois around the STL region. My agency pays hourly, gives us a car and gas card. We work on a point system 3 SOC, 2 Resume Care, 1.5 Recert, 1 regular visit. I do have some exceptions in there like my 3 hour IVIG visit counts for 3 points. I’ve been doing this for 2.5 years now....no lie an SOC in my agency takes 4-6 hours to complete. Most regular visits I can do in an hour, but I have quite a few patients with IVs and wounds and I can’t quite get those charted before time is up. I drive 50-75 miles a day. I am responsible for 6 points a day. And while from reading other posts I feel my company must be pretty fair because I get to charge for ALL the hours it takes me to chart, my goal for taking the job was to be on days and to only work 8.5 hours a day. Like there is rarely a time when I am not spending the first 6-8 hours of my weekend catching up on charting and managing my patients (we keep 20-30 patients) or working 12 hour days every day so I can have a weekend. I really find this unacceptable but from the looks of other posts most homecare agencies don’t pay you for all your time worked AND you are putting the hours I describe. That is really crazy. I do not want to work more than 40 hours a week. Any suggestions?
