    Re: private duty nursing

    I DID PRIVATE DUTY FROM 1991 TILL 2003. GOOD AND BAD POINTS. I HAD A CASE FOR 10 YRS. IN A PRIVATE HOME. PATIENT LOVED TO GO OUT FOR RIDES, EAT IN RESTAURANTS, AND COULD BE GENEROUS IF SHE GOT HER WAY. BUT IF I SAID "NO" DUE TO BAD WEATHER, SHE WAS A REAL "PIP".I ALSO WORKED PRIVATE DUTY AT AN AREA HOSPITOL. EVERY STATE HAS DIFFERENT RULES. IN N.J. THEY MADE A DECISION THAT LPN WAS NO LONGER TO GIVE MEDS OR CHART WHICH THAT IS WHAT WE WERE DOING. PATIENTS LOVE ONE ON ONE WHERE WE ARE AT THEIR CALL FOR THEIR MEDICATIONS.NOW WITH THE PUMPS TO GIVE MEDS, IT IS VERY HARD TO DO PRIVATE DUTY IN HOSPITOL. THE STAFF NURSES REALLY TOLD THE PATIENTS WE COULD NOT DO ANYTHING SO WHY PAY US. IT DROPPED OFF. MY LADY FOR 10 YRS. PASSED WITH ME AT HER SIDE OCT. 27TH 2001.WE KNEW IT WAS COMING AND THE PATIENT HAD NO IMMEDIATE FAMILY JUST 2 STEPDAUGHTERS WHICH WANTED MONEY, NO SOUVENIORS.I TOOK IT DEEPLY HORRIBLE, AND WOULD NEVER LIKE A LONG TERM CASE LIKE THAT.GOOD LUCK THOU WITH WHAT YOU LIKE
