PCA Personal Care Assistant (Current Employee) – Peekskill, NY – June 1, 2017
The hardest part of the job was creating a personal bond with the patient enough for them to gain trust. Making sure the patient fully accomplishes their goals and mandatory assignments were completed. Sometimes depending on the patients body type it could create difficulty when having to change them and having to help them bathe themselves.
Staff RN/CM (Current Employee) – Owensboro, KY 42301 – March 13, 2017
A typical day involves seeing homebound patients to provide medical care/education re: their disease process. It's an opportunity to be independent, yet have someone to call on when you need them. Management is available and willing to assist. The hardest part of the job is travel and arranging your schedule. It is a satisfying job in which you can see patients attain their goals.
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Frederick, MD – April 30, 2016
Typical day of 5-6 visits for patients who are homebound. My greatest reward from the position was the teaching that I was able to provide to my patients in order to help them maintain/improve health and remain at home rather that hospital or ECF.
Home Health Field Nurse (Former Employee) – Bradenton, FL – March 13, 2015
Home Health was another enjoyable job, and I got to meet many people whom I still think about. I was able to use my skills in IV therapy and wound care. I did not have enough clients to stay with the company.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Youngsville, LA – August 14, 2014
Very rewarding area of nursing . Flexible Schedule for working parents. Helpful and supportive staff in office and in the field. Required to spend certain amount of time with patients rather than trying to figure out where you will find the time to care for all of your patients. The paperwork can become overwhelming but only if you procrastinate. Keep up with the paperwork and you will enjoy this job. I sure did!

Staff nurse; Coordinator and Director of Nursing (Former Employee) – Pompano Beach, FL – June 30, 2014
It was a pleasure to treat people at home but very hard traveling to see them and it was tough in any kind of weather. I also called on doctors for their referrals and really felt like I was getting no where. It was a frustrating job.
