Fast paced, one on one patient care, utilize nursing skills,
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Virginia – April 24, 2018
Fast paced, requires you to be very organized. If you struggle with time management, you will struggle with home health. Paid per visit, and mileage or you have the ability to have fleet car, if you meet mileage requirement. Logging hours for charting done at home allows for being paid overtime when needed. On call once a month for 1 week at a time, compensation for this as well. Best nursing job I have had, because of being able to be one on one with patients and educate them about different disease processes without interruption. Amedisys also offers alot of education specifically for chf or copd with its own education pieces/protocol, very helpful for patients. Scheduling is a beast due to large coverage area, but all co-workers pull together for patients and most productive outcomes for all, management allows flexibility of clinical input to assist with scheduling.
One on one care, flexibility
Fluctuation in client caseload, scheduling due to territory
