    Productivity rules

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at RehabCare as an intern

    Pros

    Most of the therapists want to give the patients the best care possible despite management pull for high productivity.

    Cons

    There was an underlying competitive feeling to get the highest productivity rate...not very professional

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put patient care 1st, not profit.

    I have been working at RehabCare as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    I am PRN so that would be just being able to go to work when you want as long as you get all your minutes covered but that is anywhere. I don't work FT for RehabCare so I cannot come up with a good list of Pros.

    Cons

    Cons of working for RehabCare is that they still require daily and weekly notes. Weekly notes are paper and the dailies are via mini IPAD. You have to "clock in and clock out" each patient which really drags your productivity down since you have to coordinate your patient between OT, PT and Speech to make sure your time with them do not overlap other disciplines. If you are in a small nursing home I guess that wouldn't make too much of a difference, but when you get in a bigger bed facility it becomes difficult!

    I have been working at RehabCare as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Almost everyone is friendly. This company has treated me better than any company I worked for since I became a PTA. This company seems more fair and ethical than most of the companies I worked for as a PTA. The nursing home employees get along better with the RehabCare employees than I have seen when a different rehab company was providing the rehab workers at a nursing home.

    Cons

    Census level changes quickly and often. Since I am PRN that means many of my shifts are cancelled or cut short. There is usually not much notice. The locations that need my help tend to be 10-22 miles from home. Occasionally I work at some farther than that. The company is disorganized. There are many error in the programs on our iPads and delays in getting certain types of pay on our paychecks. I do trust the company to try to correct these errors. We are paid only twice a month. The company is overly concerned with productivity. The employees who have benefits say they are not good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower productivity standards would allow for better patient care. PRN's do not read minds. There needs to be more orientation of PRN's. Some locations make too big a deal about not wearing scrubs, even when the PRN worked most of the day at a facility that requires scrubs and then came over to help out for a couple of hours at the facility that does not allow scrubs. As long as the PRN is dressed to perform her job safely and is fairly clean I don't see how wearing scrubs in the building for a few hours is so terrible.

    I have been working at RehabCare full-time

    Pros

    Benefits package is good, generous PTO, directors strive to give you enough support to be successful, wonderful wealth of resources and online training.

    Cons

    Compensation is not competitive for the area, no raises, care more about productivity than quality patient care, little to no training when you start, high turnover rate within buildings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    invest in your staff.

    I have been working at RehabCare as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Currently, I work PRN and due to working at different locales, am able to experience varied settings and teams. I have befriended some very upstanding clinicians in most of these places.

    Cons

    When working PRN, you are at the bottom of the work pool. When the patient census decreases to the extent where there is insufficient time for full-time and floater staff, I am either cancelled or simply not offered assignments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Busy, but never too busy to assist.

    I have been working at RehabCare part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I enjoy the people I help out and the people I work with.

    Cons

    Some challanging patients and low census.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to micromanage. Give us some more money for adaptive devices to help our patients.
