Pediatric home health

  1. Hello
    I have been an LVN for 10 years. Currently, I work with special needs children with gb and trachs which I love. I have wanted to start working with vents too. What is best way to ensure top pay rate after mastering this skill? Someone told me to only do PRN only as it pays more. How do you leverage it to bring more money for my work and to help pay for health insurance?

    Pediatric private duty/home health is generally a fixed pay rate whether you do trach or t/v mostly because the reimbursement rate is fixed and on the low side. Inquire with your agency if there is a different rate quite often not

    When I did peds private duty the 'raise' for taking vent cases was a whole, entire $1/ hour.
