Home Care Agencies May Need to Offer Stronger Benefits to Entice Workers

Home Care Agencies May Need to Offer Stronger Benefits to Entice Workers

Some of the information being reported is a bit confusing, and perhaps disconcerting. For example, a recent CNBC article noted that hospital unemployment was ‘now just 1.4 percent,’ which would indicate few positions needing to be filled, but in the same sentence the report noted that these hospitals were scrambling to fills positions across a wide range of positions.

Today, more hospitals and other care environments are turning to home care as a cost-effective option.

Home Health May Help Keep People More Actively Engaged in Their Care

One of the most significant challenges hospitals face in reducing readmission rates (when a patient is readmitted within 30 days of their discharge) is keeping their patients actively engaged in their own health, recovery, and care. A doctor or nurse can only do so much, and even though many hospitals across the country have been providing more information, support, and other resources to patients upon discharge, if those patients don’t do what’s necessary or recommended, it can lead to complications.

Ohio State Auditor Claims Home Care Agency Owes Back Reimbursements

While the state is claiming that a Washington Township home care agency owes back reimbursements of almost $4 million due to ‘widespread’ noncompliance among staff, legal representatives for the company claim the state has used fault mathematics to come to this conclusion.

Successful Home Care Agencies Expand Operations to New Regions

When the Department of Labor altered its rules and provided minimum wage and overtime protections to home health care aides, and when Medicaid cut its reimbursement rates to home care agencies by 14 percent to make room for Obamacare, many small, independent agencies began to struggle.

Numerous men and women have a difficult time even thinking about a complete stranger coming into their home to provide any number of services.
