    I have been working at B. Stern Physical Therapy as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Management is easy to communicate with regarding scheduling, Per Diem rate is above average and quality of care is great

    Cons

    The nursing staff can be hard to work with at times, weekend shifts do not have many therapists which can be challenging with new patients.

    STERN......I would not recommend this company.

    I worked at B. Stern Physical Therapy

    Pros

    There are no pros to working with this company.

    Cons

    STERN is a rehab company being run by individuals who are not therapists and barely know the therapy world. Their only concern is meeting quotas and rug levels despite what the patients are able to tolerate and what is appropriate. They have very poor communication skills and constantly try to trump the therapists that are working for them concerning patient care, how many minutes are realistic with patients, length of stay, time to discharge etc...(the therapists working for them have Master's and Doctorate Degrees and years of experience) which the guys running STERN probably don't have combined. I would steer clear of this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm sure you will continue to keep doing what you are doing so I have no advice.

    Unethical and disrespectful higher management with an emphasis on profit over patient care

    I worked at B. Stern Physical Therapy as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    All patients deserve quality therapists; reasonable per diem rate; I really cannot think of more pros due to the negative experience

    Cons

    Poor communication; lack of knowledge regarding nuances of physical, occupational, and speech therapy given economics versus rehabilitation background; unrealistic RUG levels based on patient diagnoses and abilities; high productivity requirements

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To learn systems (e.g. ROCS) prior to implementation

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
