OTR SNF, O/P, HH (Innovative Sr Care)

OTR (Current Employee)

ProsLocation convenient, variety of experience at different levels of care, good internal rehab team (minus nursing),

ConsUp and down hourly with no guarantee of hours or they will send you out to cover at other sister facilities or HH/OP. Poor corporate management with little investment in clinical supplies. Lack of true rehab approach beyond the rehab dept at SNF (nursing very LTC oriented). Productivity pressure with little to no clerical back up and assistance for nonbillable patient intervention. Vacation during holidays has to be requested months in advance and approval is based on availability of coverage. Not enough PRN staff and company refuses to use agencies so frequently NO coverage available and expectation is that staff will just handle it.

Advice to Senior ManagementSupport the rehab team and program by providing needed supplies/equipment, seeking rehab nurses for rehab units and not just LTC nurses; show staff you value them and make effort to retain good employees, not just let them become frustrated and then leave. Put your money where your mouth is......invest in hiring a LARGE pool of PRN staff or bite the bullet and agree to work with a therapy agency to be sure pts get the care they deserve and staff get the chance to take off time.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
