^^^^You sound silly. I'm required to see them every 60days for an assessment and sup visit, these are not skilled clients, and no they are not in a group home they are in their own home with help from my hha's (company's hha) I use to see skilled clients and I do their assessment every 60 days, do their skilled visit 1w9 and do the sup visit every other week. Like I said my patients are dd but they have comorbidities such as htn, chf, dm, etc. If they have a change in condition or new meds then I go out and see them more often. I have hha's to be my eyes and ears when I'm not around unless the workshop, parent or doctor calls. I'm pretty sure I have 50 patients or so, It's fine. The part time more skilled nurse see's the patients on State Plan/Skilled. I see patients with I/0 Waiver. I also work in the office a lot qa careplans, mars, and the tests the hha's take.
I'm rambling but nursing wise I am learning about home health. I was a direct service worker/patient care aide, so many different titles from the time I graduated hs until the time I graduated college. In my experience a nurse never saw my patient's I took care of or came to the house. I was allowed to do delegated nursing. I called the home manager not the nurse. If my patient falls, get's a blister, is having an increase in auditory hallucinations the hha call me. I'm done trying to explain the situation to you people.
I:heartbeat my job. I :heartbeat my patients. And I don't like ugly so have a blast saying this and that bc you won't be putting meals on my table, paying any of my bills, taking care of any patients, etc. Ciao!!!!
