Office manager of field infusion nurses. Interviewed referrals over the phone to gather information needed by the visiting nurse. Confirmed doctors orders mainly drug, dosage, duration and route. Teamed with pharmacists to schedule next dose start of care. Our treatments were mainly antibiotics, arthritis agents, pain management using the CADD pump and chemotherapies. We inserted mid lines in the field and provided central line care. I would refer Medicare and Medicaid patients to a Medicare certified agency with nurses proficient in IV therapy. Also, if patient needed primary nursing care as we were not Medicare or Medicaid Certified. Our staff worked under our pharmacy license.
As Nurse Manager I arrainged or provided all of the nursing inservices, credentialing and scheduling. Also working as quality manangement on drugs and supplies we shipped from our site. Made the nurses trip plans and schedules and took report. Did payroll and time management.
Took call everynight for emergencies and frequently went out to see patients after hours.
