Pros

Stable company, large number of facillities allows for transfers, good online educational resources (though not enough computers/time to access them).

Cons

Fairly typical of SNFs are low staff- to- patient ratios, inefficient and often burdensome policies, unrealistic productivity standards, lack of communication (at times) between departments. Compared to other similar companies I've worked in, the policies are particularly burdensome and unproductive. Some policies and performance indicators are mind-boggling that anyone would have come up with....certainly not developed by clinical staff,; most certainly for reports and not having any direct impact on delivery of care or quality indicators. In otherwords, time-consuming and yet, emphasizing the WRONG things. Fortunately, dedicated staff who do their best to work within some ineffective, nonproductive and useless mandates.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Streamline processes and this company can really shine! Get more input from all staff about how they can do their jobs better. Let them come up with ways to be more productive and provide excellence. USE the collective creativity and talent you have at your disposal! And while productivity is vital to the company's viability, numbers don't tell the whole story. Look at other indicators as well for the long-term health of HCRM. Your staff is by far your greatest asset. Include them in making HCRMC the industry leader.

    Pros

    These facilities usually have great equipment and can order things that you would need. I love the PENs, for example. They help suport the use of standardized tests by having them available to use. They are generally clean facilities and the staff revolve around therapy. Nursing with bring patients to you to which helps with your productivity.

    Cons

    Productivity is king. 85%. You may have a schedule, but if there are med As that need to be seen yet you must stay and complete them. If you have children to pick up at a certain time this may be a problem. They rotate holidays, so you would have to work some of them. And the holdidays you do take off will be replaced by a weekend workday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilize your PRN. I know they cost more, but if you give your employees time with their familys to recharge from work you will see better work when they come back.

    Going home for the day, some co workers friendly.

    Too many to name, nursing staff is horrible. Listen to patients needs. Facility treats new staff like they have the plague.

    Communicate with staff, treat new staff better.
