The agency I am working with still provides 24 hr care, by one assigned caregiver, who is a non-medical caregiver. In other words she is licenced, bonded, and supposedly certified, but is not a nurse, or a medical caregiver. It was brought to my attention recently that the law changed and unless caregivers are paid OT, for night hours, the agency cannot do 24 hr care for non-medical. I was told several agencies had to stop 24hr care provided by one caregiver. Two per day, daytime/nighttime is fine, but 24hr care by one person they said was no longer allowed. Is this agency working under a loophole or is there an ethical problem here we need to be concerned with? It is so much easier to have one caregiver. Anyone know?
