Be prepared to be in constant contact with your Service Center and management. You will have an admission that you will be driving to then you will be re-routed somewhere else because the one you were on your way to fell through. Be prepared to be a detective because the doctor's office or facility will send incomplete information for your to decide if the pt is appropriate for hospice. The admission's job affords very little control over your day. If you don't mind being wrenched from one task to another and having constant contact with management, then go for it. Marketers also like to give out their work numbers to their contacts, "Oh, just call any time you are ready, 24/7.", so just when you are on your way home after a grueling, mind-numbing day, full of drama, and driving until you are dead, the marketer will call or send out an email that the family is wanting an admission asap. I do RNCM because I do not like having someone control my day; however, halfway through my day I'm often called to do an eval/admit. I absolutely hate this. It is a lot of overtime, and just too much drama, which is why I try to see 5 to 6 pts per day, so I won't be tossed an admit. Each day is fraught with worry about getting an admission. I am not the only RNCM who feels this way in our office. ALL of our case managers are currently depressed and sick calls are frequent.
