NEW RULES AFFECTING INDEPENDENT PROVIDERS:
OAC Private Duty Nursing Rules
i If you are an Ohio Independent Provider, having your independence does not mean you are alone. There are over one thousand nurses in Ohio managing their nursing careers themselves. Although we provide care in various homes, we all must report to someone besides the oncoming caregiver. That "someone" is either an R.N. supervisor, the Case Manager (Facilitator), whom reports to the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services (ODJFS). In reality, the home healthcare industry is a complex web of agencies that ultimately includes Federal institutions as well. This website is designed to bring as many Ohio Independent Nurse Providers together as possible, to form an alliance. There are several issues facing us that will require a complete network, willing to work together to resolve these critical issues. In times such as these, we cannot afford to be alone!
