I've had days like that...on the road all day, and only seen 3 or 4 patients. And we only get paid by the visit. Admissions are 1.5 hours, IV's, central line care, ostomy care, G-tube feeds/teaching, major wound care usually 1 hour. Injections are coded for 30 min. unless we're teaching the patient (OF COURSE we're always teaching!!
The office usually schedules us for about 8 hours a day. Of course, 8 hours of visits USUALLY takes a lot longer, but on a good day, it can get done in time that you make it home for supper. Mind, I'm USUALLY late for supper...we eat out, do takeout a lot!
