I was just reading the posts under "What's Your Caseload Number?" and found that many agencies are requiring their nurses to do their record time WITHOUT pay!!
WHY is this happening to professional people? For the same reason a husband beats his wife! BECAUSE HE CAN!! There are too many wimps in this profession if this is actually happening. Nobody can be walked on until he lies down first!
Two solutions are given in the articles for those so abused. File a claim with your state labor relations board and also with the federal labor relations board. This is ILLEGAL!! Especially in such a time when R.N.'s are in demand because of such abuses, AND because the majority of income for home health agencies comes from Medicare.
Perhaps (MEANS: DO IT!!) you should point out to your management that such illegalities can result in the loss of ALL federal funding, spelled: M-E-D-I-C-A-R-E!!
