    Profit over patients.

    Current Employee - Therapist
    Current Employee - Therapist

    Pros

    -generally flexible schedules
    -benefit package is decent but also costly compared to other plans of similar quality, recently raised prices considerably.

    Cons

    -unethical: directors and upper management turn a blind eye to grouping then billing individually.
    -profit over patient welfare: pressure to make everyone an "ultra," which sometimes leads to inappropriate therapy minutes...some patients noticeably decline due in part to therapy they cannot tolerate. the alternative is to bill while the patient sleeps.
    -not all patients are equal: Med A minutes must be met. when the caseload is too high, told to skip Med B patients (for days at a time when the orders indicate 5 x per week) before shortening Med A minutes or calling/adding prn therapists.
    -unrealistic expectations: 90% minimum on an 8 hour day (including breaks, leaves you 15 minutes to go back and document on the gym computers). 89.4% and you're in trouble the next morning. Occasional pressure to hit 95% (illegal expectation due to mandated breaks) and 100% (that should be a red flag, not a minute in the facility unbilled? I mean really...)
    -the only news is bad news: meeting expectations and excelling are never praised. the only time we hear anything from management it's negative....work harder, profits aren't high enough, change the way you treat to make more money, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Volunteer to take pay cuts to decrease pressure and make the company more ethical. There's no reason the VP should make enough money to live in one state and fly on a weekly basis to another to work.

    SAD, Management is poor, very political,would rather be on computor than helping nursing staff

    Current Employee - A RN
    Current Employee - A RN

    Pros

    pay is decent, but you work very hard for every dime

    Cons

    RN's and CNA's spread way to thin 6 heavy patients= 1 RN and 12 patients to 1 CNA, too heavy of work load to be carried out safely or the way they promote what they can do for your loved ones.. scary medical decisons being made by MD. Senior Nursing management does not have a clue about how hard the job responsiblilities are. always knowing you can be fired at any time for just about anything minor...management does not worry about if you get a lunch break or not, long day for 12 hour shifts with little or no breaks. do not have the appropriate equipment to handle pt's that come in weighting over 400lbs, very hard on the staffs body when you have to get these folks up and turn every two hours. the charting and medication cows are a joke....sorry just saying

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    send out surveys to allow staff to be open about what REALLY is going on in their facilities, 99% of the staff will not talk openly about the issues because of NOT wanting too loose their jobs..point and simple
