    Any qualified discipline can complete a transfer (sn, pt, ot st) and reg state it does not have to be someone that saw the patiet.
    Ie-- an office nurse/therapist can complete it

    I have been in HH 28 yrs, and my simple ans to this question is NO! If u cover all the bases this job is basically never ending, you r either finishing up today or preparing for tomorrow.
    I literally have about 2 hrs of free time a day, HH has evolved so much over the yrs that it no longer lime it was, i nonestly sont see now any one with young children that require attention or rides here and there can do it.
    Bless each and everyone of us!

    SOC date can not change unless the pt has been discharged. The date u get orders for your recert is the verbal order date, not a new SOC date,
    If this is new, which i doubt, we have not been doing it
    I have been in HH FOR 28 yrs and soc date is soc date period.

    I did 2 soc today, spent about 1 hr 15 min in the home, 1 hr 30 min on documentation and 30-40 min of travel, so usually 3 to 3.5 hrs per soc
