Greetings:In the last 2 weeks I have had 2 of the physicians that take care of the residents in my facility approach me with an idea that has now sprung into the second phase of my business endeavor.One would like for me to go to all the assited living facilities where they have patients at and do their blood draws and other specimen collections. This I believe has developed from my constant complaint that some of my residents PT/INRs or Depakote levels are consistently late. We used to have a home health agency come in , but recently the HHAs have been stating that due to medicare guidelines they cannot provide this service on a monthly basis.Then there is a RN in our area who charges families $75, to come do their labs. But, there have been some issues between her and a few physicians. I have had to take residents to a local lab and sit sometimes for an hour just so they could get their blood drawn. Some of my residents have severe dementia become agitated.I think I can do this. But, as an LPN I am unsure of the laws. When I worked for agencies I would do blood draws. I would think because I am getting my orders from the physicians this would be okay.My questions:1. What is a reasonable charge for blood draws and straight caths?2. What type of documentation would be involved?Thanks,AmiRahPS.REmember all of my business is focused around those who are home bound or who primary caregivers are unable to transport to get labs, pickup medications etc.
