I have "shared a case load" w two other rn's, so that three of us PT'ers made up a week. It sucked. I was 3 days a week,so I did all the scheduling, and had to manage all the recerts, etc...
Working w a RN/LPN team is much more realistic, that way, you supplement each other. Just be nice and try to keep geographically as close as possible, since she has to do more visits.
I will tell yuu a secret. I used this credit-card sized day-planner, you can check it out at www.daytimer.com
they do have one for 2003. It is a mini weekly scheduler. I put in all my visits, and pltted out all the recerts, and HHA sup's, so I never missed one. Also plotted in when a pt had a doc appt, so I wouldn't schedule them on that day. This meant less wasted time and wasted visits, which wasted my time a lot less. In the front and back cover, and any other pages, like time zones page, and metric equiv page, I slapped on a sticker, and put in my most freq used numbers, pharms, DME co's o2 suppliers, community resources like MOW's, etc... Also exit for intake,liaison's,HHA schedulers, etc.. I had virtually every single thing I needed in that teensy book that fit in my pocket. When it came time to do the schedule, I was able to get it done in 5 min, cuz I did it all week as I went along. So my pt's who needed labs knew when to fast etc... Very very efficient. Now, to share, a palm would be ideal, since you could beam info to each other's palms, but not as easy to flip back and forth as paper.
Hope that helped.
