    Anyone here work inpatient psych doing IM rounds?

    I'm of the mindset that no question is dumb, ha! My supervising physician and collaborative agreement would be with an IM physician.
  2. Sorry for the double post, I originally posted in Advanced Practice Nursing. I guess I forgot there was an NP forum?? Anyways... I have a job opportunity to work in an inpatient psych hospital doing Internal med H&Ps and acute IM issues. I would not manage any of the psych stuff. I talked with the physician who does it currently and it sounds like a super easy gig, should only take me 3-4 hrs per day to do what I need to do and the pay will be more than what I'm making now- currently working SNF/LTC and kinda burnt out here with all the politics/family issues/poor nursing... I'm just worried about working with this population and would love to hear from anyone who has done similar work.

    Maternity leave

    I was working in private practice when I had both of my children. Did not get maternity leave either time. First time I had banked my whole 4 weeks of PTO and used that as well as got 4 weeks of STD paid at 1/2 pay (basically equal to 2 weeks of full pay). I took 10 weeks off so about 4 weeks were unpaid. With my second, I didn't have STD (was no longer offered by my co) and I only had 3 weeks of PTO left. I ended up taking 12 weeks off though just because my husband and I were in a financial situation where we could afford to do that. The group I work with now is an even worse situation as we work on RVU only- no PTO. So the women who are looking at having babies basically have no opportunity for any paid leave. Just from other NPs that I have known, most do not get paid maternity leave (separate from PTO).

    Hospice F2F recert visits

    Does anyone here do hospice recertification visits? Can you tell me what area you are in and your pay rate for these? I've been doing this as a PRN side job for about 5 years and have had the same pay rate ($100 a visit) the whole time. I want to ask for a raise but am curious what an appropriate rate is to ask for.

    Hospice FTF Recert visits?

    I do this on a PRN basis in addition to my almost full time job. I only see about 3-6 pts a month. I usually spend less than 15 minutes on the actual pt visit but when you factor in drive time, charting, and reviewing pt records it's more like 45-60min. Obv, I'm a lot quicker with pt's I already know well vs new ones. I didn't get much training at all but I work full time in a SNF/LTC facility so am pretty familiar with hospice pts. I shadowed our medical director for one pt and went to one IDT meeting and that was it. As far as resources go, I have a little flip book with the clinical criteria for recertification for each disease process that I use, that's really about it.

    Are their flexible schedules for mothers who are FNPs?

    Many outpatient jobs will have those hrs but remember if you have a child, when they are sick it might be harder to take a sick day from those jobs when it will require rescheduling a whole day worth of pts. I do know several people who work part time in outpatient specialty clinics. I work in LTC and SNFs and it is very flexible scheduling with the capability to be full or part time.

    NP bonuses.Curious about others

    I'm in SNF/LTC with occasional rounding in AL. I work with a group who is independent of the hospital and the facilities. We get productivity bonuses based on our collections- a % of collections over a certain number. I typically see 14-18 pts per day
