lpn home visiting nurse
Immediate Supervisor Jamie Word, Branch Director (Former Employee) – Tullahoma, TN – December 26, 2016
A typical day as a visiting home health care nurse is very rewarding. Starting the day with receiving my daily visit schedule, checking physician orders, collecting needed supplies, organizing a route with efficiency and contacting patients to verify times that coordinating times best for the patient and/or caregiver.
The most challenging part of a career in home health is the travel area in which is cover. On a more personal level home health is a rewarding field due the time a nurse can spend with a patient and actually get to know the family and in some cases become part of the family. This definitely is the most enjoyable part of this job.
Nursing, as a whole, is a constant learning career. New studies, medications and procedures for different illness is truly fascinating.
As far as management of patients, coordination of care with the supervising RN, Physical Therapy, Occupational therapy, Speech Therapy and home health aides. Organization is the key to success.
learning great organizational skills and wonderful relationships with coworkers and patients
