Rewarding experiences with patients, wonderful coworkers
SRNA (Current Employee), Lexington, KYNovember 13, 2013
Pros: prn, make my own schedule, being able to work around my appointments and kids needs
Cons: too much mileage on vehicle, not enough mileage pay
A typical day at work, call patients to let them know the time I will be at their home to help them with the bath/shower. Each patient is different as to the need of help when it comes to bath/shower, dressing. I have learned a great deal from our elderly, they are very intelligent and I love listening to them reminesse. My manager is the best, she – more... is friendly, trusting, and great to work for. My co-workers are super nice and very kind, my team has the best group of professionals there is. The hardest part of the job is when your patients dies, you have gotten so close to them and their family it is very sad. The most enjoyable part of my job is giving my all to my patients, they are so appreciative of any thing you can do for them. – less

Interesting, variety of work environments and types of patients. I enjoyed the independance and the opportunity to get to know so many wonder people
RN Case Manager (Former Employee), Naples, FLNovember 13, 2012
Pros: independant work environment, variety of medical situations, getting to know patients
Cons: long hours, paperwork
A typical day working for Caretenders Home Health would start around 8 am at the office where I would stop to turn in my previous days paperwork, and pick up supplies that I would need for the current day. While in the office I would let the office staff know of my plans for the day and let them know if I was ok with my patient load. It would be at – more... this time that I might let them know if I were in need of additional patients or if I was unable to take on more patients. I may pick up a new referral while in the office. I may paricipate in a case conference with other disciplines envolved in my patients case such as : PT, OT, HHA, MSW. I may contact MD's for required orders. There are numerous resources available at the office needed to provide optimal patient care. Finally I would leave the office and get on the road to my 1st patient. I would see a variety of patients including among others: post-op orthopedic or cardiac, COPD, new diabetics, patients in need of extensive wound care, trach patients and patients requiring IV infusions. Often I may need to do blood draws for a variety of labs or PT/INR's. Always my visits included head to toe assessments, med teaching and answering patient concerns. Typically I would see 6-8 patients a day. Ocassaionally that number could go up to 10-12 patients a day. Toward evening I needed to take a few minutes to arrange my following days schedule and call those patients with an estimated time for my visit. Once all my patients were seen and all issues were managed, I would head home to finish my paperwork that was begun in the home. While doing home health I learned how to manage patient care, both in the home and via the phone to maintain contact with the MD and the variety of disciplines envolved. Although there is alot of independance when working out in the field, it is good to know that there is support back at the home office. The home health nurse needs to know she/he can call on their manager with questions, for lab results etc, The most enjoyable part of the job for me was getting to know my patients and their families. It is easy to get attached to people when you get to know them and their families in their home, sometimes for long periods of time. It is incredibly satisfying to know that you are truely helping these individuals. The hardest part of the job might be getting to know patients and their families and forming attachments to people that will, eventually end, one way or another. – less

Clinical Team Assistant (Former Employee), Henderson, KYJuly 7, 2012
Caring for seniors is their business, and they do it well. I learned about ICD-9 Coding and OASIS forms.
