Dana in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania said: Oh to answer your question about home health pay, in home health you get paid by the client not by the time. You get a certain rate when all the paperwork is in per person. You get reimbursed for mileage but it is not an hourly job pay.

hi.do u know what the pay per person is?

I do not know what a cota makes in home health. The pay for OTR varies to somewhere about $36 per visit. ( when the completed paperwork was in). Plus whatever they pay per mileage.

COTAMAN said: I worked as a COTA for 27 years and was making $28.00 an hour in Los Angeles which is about right for someone with my experience. You can expect to make about $16 to $18 and hour in most states. In New Hampshire I was told by recruiters that the average pay scale for COTA's was $15 and hour. Colorado is the lowest at $12 an hour.

wow that is pretty low pay for a COTA. I live in Florida and the average rate for a COTA with a couple of years experience is $25 an hour. When I first graduated school 7 years ago with my degree I was making $19 and I make much more than that now being in a management position.

AVOID by all means working for SALUS rehab. Since the new president, Chris Bennett, took over, SALUS rehab has become a place where the therapy staff who are professionals, are treated worst than factory workers. Lack of respect, lies, 100%+ productivy required or else you go home early. The president, who is herself an OT, thinks that the therapy staff are her worst enemies.

cotapril in Wichita Falls, Texas said: It is a SNF. I work at 2 of them (for the same company) and PRN rates are $35-45 here depending on your experience. I made $45 per hour all summer long PRN d/t the shortage of staff. My current rate is $33 per hour at my regular job, but as I said before shortage of staff and programs = increase in demand and salary. My facilities are 10 minutes apart. But other assistants in my area are making the same as me w/o traveling to another facility. I am not with a staffing company or a traveling company. I work for a nationally based rehab company. Hope this helps.

can I ask you how many yrs experience you have?? I am looking into a staffing company for travel assisgments,)so I have a idea of salary)have 8 yrs in PEDS, lack of jobs here in ND and pay is LOW, thanks

Shayla in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania said: My mom graduated from Kaplan in pittsburgh as an ota. She started out making 23/hr but after a couple months went to 28/hr now she travels and is making over 30/hr. That might be a good idea for you if you don't have small children. Traveling agencies pay for everything, your rental, airfair, they set you up in a fully furnished paid apartment and give you an extra 3-400 a month as allowance on top of your weekly paychecks. And you can choose where you want to work. Texas, Hawaii, Florida wherever. Exciting. If you have any questions my e-mail is sweetkiises26@yahoo.com

I'm currently completing my OTA and i'm interested in traveling in the future. Does she like the travel? What is the name of the agency she's working for?

It seems like there are such mixed feelings about this line of work. I am considering going to school for an OTA program, but I am very hesitant. I want to work with special needs children specifically, but it seems like that is the most competitive area to land a job in. I really don't think I want to deal with toileting people...maybe I could handle it better if it was with kids, but I still don't know. Is the toileting and bathing really a huge part of this line of work?

Now I know that the salaries are a bit inflated. I was scanning for jobs on this website...you see how on the right it shows COTA salary in the mid fifties...well I just got a shock. THere was a position in Vancouver, WA for a COTA with 2-4 years experience and the pay was $13.61 to 15.04!!!!!!!! I just hope this is an aberration and not prevalent in other areas. I am planning to move to Texas or PA and I hope the salaries are better than this!!

Yeah, I was really surprised. I do not think it truly representative of COTA salaries. I saw on many traveling assignments that you could make $23-30/hr. As long as I can make at least $19.00 /hr, I will be satisfied. I have had to lower my standards quite a bit.

I start a part-time program at Green River Community College and the instructors said that their graduates are 100% employed after taking the NBCOT test. So I am anxious to get learning and working.

Wow! I just saw an PRN job for COTA in Pittsburgh starts at $14/hr. Omg! How can they pay such low salary for a professional person. I mean we have to go through training, clinicial experience, and take a national exam. Why is it low in some areas and not in others?

Because some places don't get it that COTA's are professionals who must get an associates degree in the field. They equate the title, Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant, with the title Certified Nursing Assistant. It's bad enough that people don't understand occupational therapy, but they really don't understand the role of the COTA.

I totally agree that people do not know what COTA's do. When I told my mother about it she kept calling it "orthopedic assistant!"

I tried to contact Indeed to find out where they are getting their figures but I have received no response. I think everyone is aware that COTAs really don't make that much. I will be perfectly happy to make $40,000 when I graduate. Of course, I have to move because in Seattle, that's chicken feed.

Gosh I sure hope it stays that way. WE are seriously considering moving to Texas for employment and the heat. We are looking at San Antonio and Austin. What about the competition for work among new grads though. I noticed at least two colleges with COTA program. Here in Washington State, there is only one accredited program. Although two programs are pending.

Hello, I am looking at going to the program over at Durham Tech for the COTA program, but have a lot of questions. 1) How much would it help a person get into OT school later on that have crappy grades. 2) How much does a starting OT make around the RDU area? enough to feed a family on? 3) Did you go to Durham Tech, and if so, what did you think about it? I tired last yeard to get into an OT program but got denied by 3 schools, and not sure weather to try again.

I would like to know what do you think my hourly rate would be considering that by the time I move I will have one year and a half experience. I am seeking a prn position at a skilled nursing facility.

From what I here its around $35 to $40 per hour. Be warned though, I am in the process of reinstating my license there and they told me it could take up to three months to get it back. This is due to the high volume increase in licensure applications the last few years. Interestingly, one of the staff members at the Texas OT board stated there has been a lot of applications come from COTAs in California.

Is the toileting and bathing really a huge part of this line of work?

Hi, I work in a skilled nursing facility. One of the top ones in my area in Ky. just started a few months ago , I'm a new COTA, $25 hr. ADL's (toileting and bathing) are really not that big a deal. I have 8-11 patients a day for 12 weeks at a time. Maybe a few of them will need bathing and dressing techniques taught to them. I will do one a day, so that may turn into 3 a week. It's no big deal, takes about 45 minutes. You learn to do it in steps.

Have them pick out their clothes, put them on their walker or in their w/c, take them to the bathroom, stand up, take clothes off, shower, sit back in wheel chair, get dressed.....etc. Then your done. Toileting is no big deal either. You may be in the middle of a treatment and they need to go. Just take them to the bathroom via walker or wheelchair, help them stand if they need it, pull down their pants, sit them down and step out for a few minuutes. Stay by the door, when their ready.....have them clean themselves if they can, if they cannot, make sure you have gloves on, you may have to use wet towels, clean, stand them up, pull up pants, both of you wash your hands, then your done. If they need more assist (two people), grab someone to go with you to help.

If you choose to go into this field, you will do fieldwork clinicals. Pick 2-3 different areas to do your clinicals. That way you will get a variety. ie: nursing home, schools, hospital: rehab, acute care, home health,outpatient.

COTA in Fort Myers, Florida

Apple in KY - Outstanding answer/explanation.

Pamela in TN -Toileting/personal hygiene isn't that bad and you do get used to it. Gloves, wet wipes and a can of air freshener make it much more tolerable. LTC facility patients tend to need more help in this area. SNF/subacute settings, don't need as much assistant because the goal is to go home. Patients who will be going home are usually very motivated to do this task without assistance and would prefer no one help them because of modesty issues. Usually patients are embarrassed and apologize that you have to help them. If they do need your help, they need the skilled services of occupational therapy. CNA's do for the patient, but we teach the patient to do for themselves. One promotes dependence, the later independence. That is how Medicare recognizes the distinction between the skilled service of a COTA versus a CNA. We get to see our patients regain their independence.

Apple in Kentucky - it sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and a bright future in the field!!!

I am working my butt off and unfortunately I need to get through a.s.a.p because the small business my dad has worked at for over 20+ years closed. He has worked hard sometimes more than 2 jobs at a time to provide for our family and I. I need to contribute or be able to afford to if need be. He was the main bread winner my mom is diabled but he makes too much for her to recieve any type of benefits for the govt. He is very educated at what he did/does. But they live in a small rural area where there are basically no other jobs thanks to NAFTA! I'm soo very stressed this was just the icing on the cake.

Hello Stephanie. I guess you are talking about the lack of accredidation for the Brown Mackie school you are attending. I went to the AOTA.org site and typed in accredited OTA schools for your city. I found out Metropolitan Community College does have its accredidation for their OTA program. You may want to look at transferring if that was your concern. You happen to live in a state that has about 6 currently accredited programs, which is really good. Hope this helps.

Charlie Smythe in Dallas, Texas said: Also, the catch is with SNFs - when they offer a higher hourly rate either per diem or for staff - and they can send you home, they don't have to deal with the waste of paying staff for down time if the census drops off. But, you've committed the day to them or most of it - and, if you're sent home, you can't so easily make up those hours. So, the increased hourly rate averages out to close to the same hourly rate at a hospital. The inflated hourly rate offered by the SNFs lures therapists to work for them - but, the facilities come out ahead in the end. Moral of the story - don't multiple the $46 a hour x 40 hours until the end of the week - and, have a back up PRN home health job to fill in the gaps if you count on the extra income.

I have a question maybe charlie can answer if you can.

so can one work with Two agencies Home health- Home visits? I think full time is 22 visits per week. But can one do 44 visits with two different companies in order to maximize pay? Are we allowed to do it that way if we have the time?
And what is the pay for home visits in Texas? I know it says $30 but why are some people making $50? Is there a special certification that enables one to make more that the general COTAs?

Thank you.
