Bayada Nurses

  1. Does anyone have any experience with Bayada Pediatric Home Care? I'm contemplating doing a few shifts per month, and was wondering about their PT/per diem rates.

    I live in PA. I just spoke with them last week. They offer $25 - $28 hour depending on the severity of the patient.

    i'm also considering going to bayada part time, just to pick up some home visits... rather than full shifts....

    Bayada has been around 30 years. Rather good company with headquarters in NJ. Visited their website recently and see they are sponsoring foreign nurses as unable to staff all their private duty shifts, majority of their business.

    i worked for bayada on and off for the last year or so. Some of the cases are really nice, great people. For me, it just was'nt a good fit. Many of the cases they offer are long term care type, i worked with many adults with brain injuries. Acute cases are hard to get, and few and far between. Working in critical care, i was bored feeding, walking, bathing, cleaning, etc for one patient. I also had some problems with family- keep in mind, many of the family members have been dealing with their family members illness for many years and are very very particular about how they want things done. The rates in my area are from $22-28 an hr, 22 for long term care, little nursing skill needs, around $25 an hr for vent/trach/kids, and have "nursing skill visits" at rates of $35-60 per 1-2 hr visit. For me, many of the cases they offered were 20-30 miles from me, and i made more than twice the money they offer doing overtime at my hospital. I know several people who love homecare though, so maybe you will.

    Hiya !!!
    I have worked for Bayada for two years. I only had one case where the mother is a little "different" and she is a NURSE !!!! All my other cases have been GREAT !!! The families have treated me wonderfully and the pay is decent. I call it glorified babysitting. I say go for it. If you don't like it, then stop. You'll never know until you try it out. GOOD LUCK !!!
