You are reading page 2 of STRESS LEVEL: Home health VS Hospital job
I personally think to each his own...I worked the hospital for 2 years and found it stressful, yes, though rewarding.
I just recently started home health. 1 patient with CP from 8am to 8p twice weekly. To me that was more stressful. Its just you and the patient and you have to do everything. Im the PCA and the RN:
G Tube feedings
Transferring from bed to W/C
Just a lot of work for the little pay. Here in South Florida home health agencies pay VERY little...starts $18.00 to $21 (that was the highest Ive found)
Not only that but I enjoy variety and learning new things which you are able to do in a hospital setting.
I would stick it out longer in the hospital. Perhaps look into other hospitals near you.
Good luck !
Thank you very much for the information. The agency has wonderful orientation, so I just waiting to start clinical part. By the way we are not dealing with blood, but I’m not sure about chest tubes. We do take care of stomas. As I can see now, it’s a lot of double work: paperwork then computer. So, I’ll see. Thanks a lot. J
