Home health RN supervisory visits

Posted

Hello,

I work for a small home health care agency in Texas. I have been doing a lot of research on the frequency of requirements for RN supervisory visits for medicaid patients. All of the information I find is only relevant to supervision of HHA's, and not LVN's. I know if someone has a HHA, the RN supervisory visit is every 60 days if they are receiving HHA services only, and every 14 days if they are also receiving SN, PT, or OT. I still have not been able to find anything for supervisory visits for patients who are only receiving SN care from an LVN, with no HHA. If anyone has any information on this topic please let me know. Thanks!

I don't know about TX laws. In my state an LPN has to be supervised at least every 30 days. Aides every 14 or 15 days (can't remember), if they are skilled. And my agency doesn't just provide the medicaid Aide service, so I'm not sure about the 60 day supervision with aide service only.
