Registered Nurse/Case Manager (Former Employee), Webster, NY – March 25, 2014
Pros: m-f schedule 8-5, no weekends
Cons: becoming lax in skills that you would use in a hospital setting that are not required in home care
I worked mainly with the Long term care program, managing 40 patient's care in a home setting. In the past year with changes in insurances, typically medicaid, Long term care is being phased out because of the Medicaid's changed to Manged Long Term Care in Home health. During my 4 years I also provided Medication and diabetic management with patient's. – more... Various types of wound care. Assisted with the Cardiac teams patient's load as well the CHAA division of the agency. I provided assessment/ Recertification of patient's. I provided Start of Care visits as well as Resumption of Care visits. I was let go from VNS on 3/17, as I stated earlier my Team is being phased out. I feel because of my experience is primarily in home care, I feel it is best for me to obtain a med surgical entry level RN position to begin to broaden my experience as a RN – less

no lunch breaks. high turn over. lack of leadership. no or little potential for advancement. you have to be at 5 places @ once. your day is spent chasing behind clients who does not want to be found. then you get penalized for not finding the clients. your case load is from 25-32. then you get a case every other day. you have to share a work station; – more... even though you have endless paperwork to do. that means if the person you share your computer with is in the office, you either wait until that person is done or ask someone to use their computer. filthy work space.
