I have just started a new job in home health. I have been working in med/surg for the last 4 years at a hospital. I would appreciate any tips as far as dealing with patients, their homes 😣, families, charting, OASIS. Scheduling...., it is all a bit much right now!!!

 

Thanks!  👩‍⚕️

Having been in home care for 5 years I feel charting is the most challenging. I always practice and teach chart before going home, stop at a coffee house or library. Once you take work home with you it will build up. As far as families I always ask at start of care how often they want to be contacted or would they prefer a text when I visit.
