Nursing for friends! What do you think?

  1. I had a friend call today that asked for a favor. Apparently her elderly next door neighbor recently fell and fx'd her spine. She is currently in a SNF, but should be home in a couple weeks.
    The woman REFUSES to stay in any sort of LTC facility and demands she be at home. The daughter has worked with 3 Home health agencies and has gotten 3 "losers".
    My friend said "hey, I have a friend who's a nurse ...." you know the rest. She called to ask if I would be willing to do some "private duty" nursing for her neighbor for a while,3 days a week a couple of hours a day.
    I would obviously carry insurance, but it still just doesn't feel right. Anything else I should consider? Anybody done this and regreted it?
