I am wondering what the usual rate of pay is for HH RNs. Do you get paid per visit or hourly and do you get paid for your mileage? Is there an agency that is better to work for? Thank you.

This depends exclusively upon the company you work for and the market in the area.

Our pay is roughly the same as local med surg day shift. More if you're a high producer and PPV.

Excuse my ignorance, I'm somewhat new to HH. What does being a high producer and PPV mean? I think PPV is pay per visit?

Number of visits made per day or week, and/or number of patients managed. With quality of care an emphasis with my company.

If I could absolutely guarantee anonymity I would be more specific, with that being said if you look up home health RN salaries on glassdoor it will give you a really good idea. I actually make more than I would if I were full time in a hospital. I am salaried. I get mileage reimbursement, hourly if I pick up extra, on call pay is available plus the hourly from time leaving home until back at my doorstep if I have to go out. I used to work for a company and was paid per visit. I liked the company but could not make the per visit thing work. Some people can. There are many types of agencies, small, large, and they may use different models. I prefer the case management/team model. I prefer to see the same patients and get to know them and not all agencies follow this model. No matter the size of the agency whether it fits you or not will depend on your local management team. I am lucky, for the most part they try not to kill us even though it's out of their hands sometimes.

I quit home care a year go. At that time they paid 35$ per routine visit and 50 $ for the first visit. Ad a little bit more if a patient had a PICC line. A routine visit used o take me one hour, it included a visit itself, driving time, and documentation. So it was 35$ hr. Then they switched to computorized charting. It was terrible. To chart one visit on computer takes at last 1 hr! and still the same 35$ per visit. Since a visit takes longer now due to longer charting it is 20$ per hr. In Fact, RN's pay in home care is down to LPN pay. That's why I quit homecare
