Hi, as a newly appointed moderator, I want to live this forum up a bit. I just resigned my position as a HH supervisor, to go back to the field. I have been a nurse 20 years, 17 in critical care,... Read More

    Sorry I missed this...was having my baby on 12/12, home recovering now Yeah that is very low what they are paying you. We are only required to have our phones on the same as our agency hours 8-5 M-F, unless we are on call, in which we are compensated on call pay in addition and if we have to make a visit extra pay for that as well. We get paid for holidays even if we don't work them and there is compensation for working the holiday but it's not as generous as in the hospital. I would strongly suggest talking to your supervisor about your pay. Do other nurses for your agency make the same or is that just initially while you're training? We are also given the option for a gas card or milage reimbursement. They need to offer one or the other to you as well. Is it a small private agency or bigger one? Stand up for yourself because they are very much taking advantage of you and you deserve more for all your hard work!

    Yep, it's per visit. I double checked. There is no differentiation between admits, resets/ROC, discharge or a reg. visit. I'm in Ohio, by the way. I'm also not compensated for charting or driving time, or mileage. No holiday or weekend pay. But I'm supposed to be available for my patients 24/7. Only receive on call pay if it's my weekend in call, which makes no sense. We are to be available all the time!!? I'm just so confused by this pay system. I don't know if I'm being taken advantage of or if I just need to suck it up.
    You are being taken advantage of. Do not suck it up. Go elsewhere.
    Good luck!
