poor cost-effective measures, patient care is secondary
Home Care Nurse Case Manager (Former Employee) – Kettering, OH – June 11, 2015
a typical day at work begins as soon as you wake up and does not end until you go to bed...since your personal cell is converted to your business line as well. I easily worked 14 hours daily M-F. you are paid per visit, so any followup calls or documentation done from home is not compensated, though a necessary requirement.
Management/ scheduling intentionally keeps your assignment (6 patient quota) short so you may be used as on-call without differential compensation. If you do not meet your visit requirement, they take your vacation time, although they create the deficit daily!
most of the nurses are not dependable and rude. Poor infection control. Probably due to burn out and mental/physical fatigue.
No raises. Unable to have spouse on family medical insurance plan.
everything besides the money and patients
