Yes that is very true on the profit side. I guess I am "old in the thoughts" people should come first........
I guess I should be quiet now.....seems like people are afraid to comment for fear of being fired. I figure if the company reads it go for it...........
I wouldn't think anybody would get fired for understanding business. It is helpful actually.
It would be so nice to always put pt need/want first but a business like that would be out of business real fast. If we, as employees and nurses, understand this and accept it as the way it has to be, we can work around it and provide excellent care for our pts and their families.
Yes, it is what causes most of the extra stress in our job but nobody promised us a stress free atmosphere when we got into home care.
I think it is funny how so many institutional nurses think home care is "the cats meow" since we only have 1 pt at a time. LOL Never have I had only 1 pt at a time! And just to make it really interesting, my pts tend to be stretched from one end of the metro area to the other, crossing county lines and therefore having to deal with differing medicaide issues. The only thing that keeps me personnaly from crossing state lines is I won't get my license in Ky or In. That keeps me in Oh crossing only county lines, but I'm not crossing state lines!
