Re: “Nurse Shortage Puts Vermont Parents on the Hook for Kids' Care

Low pay and lack of benefits is part of the problem. The work also lacks interaction with other staff. Team work, mutual support and socially enjoyable time at work are missing. The work may be very routine and lacks the variety of interesting patients which keeps nurses challenged and learning. I also do not know how quiet a home care nurse must be while the rest of the family is sleeping in the same home. Many home health nurses prefer to make shorter visits with several patients during daytime hous. And nurses are usually paid extra for the inconvenience of working night shifts. As a medical professional, I would choose a hospital or nursing home setting for all of these reasons even if the pay was equivalent. Even with better pay, finding nurses who want to do this working with this schedule may continue to be difficult.
