I was working home health and my agency gave my patients away because I was falsely accused of making a med error. I was not fired, and they say they will consider me for future patients. Being left with no patients is not fair IMO, but it is what it is. I want to continue in home health, but its hard financially when you lose patients for various reasons. I do love it though, the flexible hours , short visits, and everything is great and its hard to picture doing anything else. It is hard financially now as I have 0 income. I am looking for home health jobs but from past experience I know it will most likely take months to build up my patient load. There are dozens of agencies out there but a lot are not hiring, or are hiring, but have very little work.
How can I over come this obstacle and still do home health? Perhaps for now I should do something for income temporarily like drive for Uber? Just wondering what others have done to get past the challenges home health brings.
