background: the visits that nurses make to people's home are paid at… - don't let the bastards grind you down.

the visits that nurses make to people's home are paid at a rate called, conveniently enough, the visit rate. in this case, it's $32/visit. a visit is calculated to be 1 hr and 20 minutes. If you do the math, that corresponds to 8 dollars for every 20 minute period, or $24/hour.

This is me explaining it to one of our agency administrators:

The hourly rate that corresponds to a $32 visit rate is $24/hour.

If you would like the rationale behind that, let me know, and I'd be more than happy to provide that.

This is her getting me in trouble with everybody:

I have no problem with the hourly rate corresponding to the per visit rate, but the hospital(HR) is having a problem with it. For payroll purposes we need to stay with the 24.00 for now.

are you fucking kidding me???? isn't that what i fucking said??? was i not fucking clear?! JEEZ.

i responded back with:

$24/hour is the appropriate rate, as mentioned in my email below. If that's the rate the hospital wants to go with, then that's perfect.

hopefully it's snarky enough without getting me into trouble. but seriously, though, her lack of insight is going cause me grief about my communication skills (which is what i get in trouble for every fucking review). i am confused at how i seem to be crystal clear and yet still have people in power be clueless, making me look bad.

i think you've given her too much information and confused her. I've realized that most people in the world aren't smart.

Did she try to divide 32 by 1.2 instead of 1.333?

It seemed clear enough to me.
