I need help ASAP PLEASE!!!

I am an LPN in Mississippi.I have been in HH for many years. I have mostly worked in Tn where no supervisor visit was needed. I am now working in Mississippi. The company I am working for says the RN has to go do the sup visit on the FIRST visit with me then once a month. Below is all I can find in the regs about this.. It does NOT say the first visit must be done with the RN..

The RN must... "Provide direct supervision of the Licensed Practical Nurse in the home of each patient seen by the LPN AT LEAST ONCE A MONTH".

PLEASE tell me where I can find more about the regs on this..mi have faxed, called, and email state board for 2 weeks with no answer back.... Thanks

Just wondering what the big deal is that RN will be there on first visit instead of in a month? Some companies prefer to have RN make sure you are following the treatment plan beginning first visit. I've done supervisory visits usually after a month or more. In general it is just about following the regulations. There is nothing bad there. Plus it might be true if you are new to that particular company.

My point exactly!! What is the big deal!! Especially when the RN just did the admission!! It is actually a case where this company as never had an office in Ms. They are using me as a trial, I guess. I quit a full time job and excepted a position with them and now they wont give me enough visits.. I just need to find EXACTLY were the regs are explained..

What company do you work for?

I work for a small company in Los Angeles. I think they are sending an RN with you because you are new and they want to make sure you are doing everything right. I've had to do that with new hires (LVNs and RNs) when there was a more complicated procedure or something like that. I've also had those visits done where I was being supervised when I started with the company.

Are you concerned because you aren't confident in your skills? They stop by, but don't usually stay that long.
