i have applied for this job. it is a 30 minute drive during good traffic. they said i would get 4-5 patients a day and that it is 8-5 mon-fri and that we are paid hourly. the area is kind of spread out in that town but she said i would get the southern part which is closer to where i live. i think i would love hospice nursing. i am just wondering what i should be looking for with a home health hospice position. i know this sounds weird too but i was thinking a lot of these people must be on some heavy narcotics..how do you give narcotics at home in a safe manner so that you can't be accused of stealing them or something???? i am sorry i have been working in a hospital for 3 years and narcotics are counted and witnessed when wasted, ect. so it does make me nervous about doing that in a home by myself. (i think i would love the job, fyi, i just am unsure of what constitutes a "good" home health set-up/employment/agency). thanks so much!
