I was reading a thread on here and it said some people who were LPN's were making 17 --21 dollars PER VISIT.

Was just wondering if this was the norm?

Again, the thread said this was for an LPN visit, not RN.

Thanks!

What length of time is defined by "a visit"? Thirty minutes or two hours? I work home health, but am paid hourly.

i know some people that only see 6-8 patients a day...if so that salary would not be very good at all.

Where I live you have skilled visits or block time visits.....skilled visits are usually one amount like $30.00 for a new case, or $26.00 for an established case. For block time...it's by the hour and it is usually 4 hours to 16 hours depending on your preference, hours available etc. Also it depends if you work days, evenings, or overnights that determines your hourly rate as well.....

I live in Central Florida. I did home health care for 6 years. I worked 12-hour shifts, mostly medicaid pediatric cases. The pay is 16-18 per hour. They do not reimburse for gas, no shift or weekend differential, no vacation or sick time. I used to work 60 to 72 hours per week to get the overtime. I liked working in home care but the pay has not improved in 15 years--no cost of living raises since it is medicaid. When my primary case moved 45 miles away, I just could not continue to pay for gas and spend an extra 2 hours on the road each day. I went back to LTC near my house.
