    Loved the facilities I worked at. Good ability to cover other buildings if census is low to make sure you get your hours. Good communication with management

    Cons

    Benefits weren't as good after Kindred took over. Not a lot of equipment. Lots of new D.O.s over a few years with new goals each time

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Will work around your schedule.

    Cons

    Limited in hours, limited advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Not enough hours to support a family. Most employees are PRN and not full time. While benefits are good there are limitations for employees who are not full time.

    Pros

    I like the close-knit atmosphere between employees. This company allows countless opportunities for growth and progression in the therapy world.

    Cons

    Initially, there were minor difficulties connecting with recruiters about posted openings. They did not respond to voicemails in timely manner.

    Advice to Management

    My only suggestion is to encourage recruiters to follow-up on potential employees during the hiring, or in my case, transferring process.

    Pros

    The hours are great and the Program Director is a great leader who really sets the direction of the staff.

    Cons

    Definitely personal growth is slow moving. I feel sometimes my hard efforts are not recognized.

    Advice to Management

    I have a great manager who knows what she's doing, her hands are tied when it comes to promotions.

    Discontinue Christmas tins and offer $5-$10 fast food giftcard or option to receive a gift from company's gift website

    Pros

    This is a great national company, providing a wide range of decent benefits, great resources and adherence to compliance for healthcare regulations. All of the therapists I have worked with at RehabCare are wonderful, caring individuals. RehabCare does not take compliance regulations lightly, so daily and weekly documentation is required. All documentation is computerized with therapists utilizing IPads or IPad minis. There are many great protocols already in place for therapists to utilize, from Ortho programs to Real Lifestyles. Being a large national company, there are many opportunities for lateral transfers in the case of relocation.

    Cons

    Some therapists that are not tech savvy, may have difficulties transitioning to electronic documentation. Point of service documentation can be difficult to maintain to the minute as Medicare does not reimburse for documentation time. Therapists often work off-the-clock to complete all the required RehabCare documentation.

    Advice to Management

    Electronic documentation system currently utilized is rather slow. Some glitches with the Smart software won't allow for personalized goals for the patient, there is no option for free typing specific patient situation goals. Productivity expectations for evaluating therapists are too elevated for required documentation to complete evaluations and discharges of patients, due to outcomes, g-codes, inputting evaluation/discharge, writing telephone orders and restorative nursing programs.

    Pros

    Nice facility to work in. Great therapists with supportive upper management. Flexible schedule and time off. Great technology to assist with your job.

    Cons

    Sometimes hard to recruit or keep employees due to a weak benefits package

    Advice to Management

    Different benefit options would be helpful.

    This company could pay employees better.
