    Pros

    Their proactive therapy model is a good one, in theory. Unfortunately, it is my belief that it is an abuse of the system.

    Cons

    Therapists are told to keep caseload up, with little consideration as to whether there is a real and true need for the therapy services. Basically, if the resident has Medicare therapy dollars available, therapists are encouraged to "identify a need" and create revenue for the company. It is a complete misuse of Medicare dollars.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Operate with positive reinforcement. Hire appropriately - stop overstaffing your therapy departments. Stop using fear to motivate good, hard-working employees who are simply doing their best.
