average pay for HHN in Georgia

  1. I recently took a position as DON of a small home health agency in Georgia and would like to know from Georgia home health nurses', what is the average pay rate. My company pays $30 per visit and nurses are not reimbursed for mileage. When I am trying to staff a case I usually choose nurses that live in that surrounding area, typically a 20-25 mile radius. Many of my nurses are telling me that is on the low end of the pay rate and I wanted to know if this is true. I thought it was good because almost all visits take one hour or less, so it is the same as if you were working in a facility making $30/hour. I really want to help my nurses so if this is not a good pay rate, I would like to have a discussion with the owner to discuss this with him so we can make sure we retain our nurses. All responses are greatly appreciated

    The visit rate is fair. Remember location is also considered when factoring wages. I think that it is reasonable for Georgia's cost of living. I will not mention agencies that I know are paying much less in Florida and the cost of living is much higher, especially in South Florida.

    State, area, type, and location is definitely a factor. I guess I should start packing and head to Michigan.

    I think they should be reimbursed for mileage...
