    HH weekend triage nurse

    Would you be responsible for all SOCs and ROCs on Saturday and Sunday? If this is part of the job then you won't be working from home. You will likely be out seeing patients all weekend. Ask about how many nurses are on call in addition to you triagi...
  2. Anyone here also the Privacy Officer? New position and I've been told I'm the Privacy Officer. The P.O. before the one I replaced was sending out the Privacy practices annually to every resident/guardian and I've found 15 years of signed "I received ...

    Cargo pants suggestions

    Does anyone know from personal experience of cargo scrub pants that have pockets on both legs? I don't live near a scrub store so I have to buy online. What brands? Styles?

    Doctors refusing to sign FTF and Plan of Care

    My problem with this situation is I've now been seeing your patient for a week, a month, 2 months without signed orders. What happens in the event there is a lawsuit?

    Overworked Home health RN

    OASIS question

    I think you're confused about OASIS submissions. Your agency may require an OASIS to be done on every patient but not every OASIS is submitted. What I am confused about is why would someone admit with a non Medicare payor if Medicare is primary? I've...

    Telling employer you're pregnant

    Why do you have to tell them?
  12. I'm just about at my wits end. I cannot keep staff. Everyone is stressed about the continuously updated list of "you must have this on every chart" that they are ready to give up. Our OASIS reviewers/coders make so many changes to the 485/OASIS that ...
  13. I work for a large corporation and they are forever changing what is "required" in our documentation. When I started several years ago, orders were written kind of vague such as wound care: "cleanse with saline, cover and wrap". Now it has to be wri...
  14. I had a discussion about this topic with one my coworkers. I'm sorry but I do not care how badly someone needs care, if I cannot use a proper bag technique due to filth and bugs then I'm not starting the patient. I do not think we, as home health n...

    Wound vac

    I would go out and make a visit. That is why I am on call. I do not send anyone to ER or make them wait unless it is life threatening or something very trivial. Wound vacs are not something I consider trivial.
