NP SNF visits

Posted

Hello, I've started at a nursing home. I initially started at a big building and did not have many visits. I was transferred to a smaller one, not knowing there was another company that owned more than half the building. I don't know how I'm going to get 20 visits from about 29 patients 4 days a week. I keep telling my boss there's no way! She insists its busy there. What other visits can I do besides the sick visits?

You can have one problem focus each visit fours days per week.  Same as office visits, patients need to reschedule for other problems.  In SNF setting patients are so sick with co-morbids, if you genuinely work-up each big problem at all active, will be exceptional care at your level.
