I have been working at Weston Group full-time (less than an year)

Pros

when starting I was told that I need to build a caseload, which managent did assist me in doing. not complaints there . i was told that I would get my hours in which case i have been able to get 32 so far to meet the benefit requirement

Cons

im not happy with the discrepencies in the paperwork. i work at 2 facilities, and one is comp paperwork, the other is hand written and havent rolled over yet. its very confusing to regear and do things differently day by day. there should be more consistency in all buildings. management is supportive but far away. within the 1st work of starting they increased the productivity standard and stated that if productivity wasnt achieved then they would start writing therapists up, which to me is very micromanagerial. theres only 1 comp in the building, for a staff of 4 and thats mini laptop and keyboard is very small. new hires are left to fend for themselves, and learn job functions on their own. therapists have to basically treat, finish all doc, enter time daily by their limit, stay productive or ge written up, complete and correct all monthly billing, finish all verifications and enter on paper, to me thats herrondous for an 8 hr day. they need to SIMPLIFY a therapists job and eliminate red tape with BILLING!!! make a job easy not difficult!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

QUIT mocromanaging and threatening. getting written up is never a solution. thats simply micromanaging coming from someone with a management degree.

    Pros

    Smaller company which has the capacity to offer competitve wages, and in theory, growth and upward mobility as they seem to fire and hire people / turn over people fairly quickly.

    Cons

    Weston Group's affiliate Paxxon Healthcare which was recently rolled out in Belmont Independent and Assisted Living facilities nation wide. Paxxon overstaffs buildings with traveling therapists, understaffs permanent managers, and tries to manage from afar without knowing their clients. The company provides few to no resources for therapists (including no computers for internet access, yet daily time cards are expected to be entered in their computer/electronic record keeping. Their documentation systems exist on paper and insurance verification system is archaeic (therapists are required to gather patient info, MD data and NPI info (again without a computer) and fax the requests to the east coast where it can take up to 10 days to hear back regarding patient's insurance. The company does not provide appropriate start up materials or guidance, including a company manual that has some chapters in triplicate and other chapters that are missing... including missing Medicare 700 forms. Again, few therapeutic resources are available for therapists including no access to theraputty, theraband, or hip kits for OT's to use to demonstrate for their patients. Management that is in place resides 3 hours away in another time zone and is done from one conference call to the next. Management also expects insane productivity levels, yet provides no means or resources for building case load, including no business cards, no flyers or handouts, no promotional resources, and limited interaction between corporate Paxxon and corporate Belmont leaves therapists and employees at the local level left floundering to guess how to negotiate the merger.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a class in ethics. Then learn about your clients in each building. Don't think that a coroporate model that someone devised in their back yard in podunk PA is going to fly in reality in southern CA.

    I have been working at Weston Group full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility and supportive therapists... Those are the ONLY pros

    Cons

    Poor management which impacts all staff negatively, poor communication between staff and management, little support offered to employees, pressure to commit unethical acts to increase caseload and profit, leadership is nonexistent, higher ups, hr, and administration are extremely disorganized which is evident as it impacts all employees, very few rights practiced in terms of ethics and morals; often times therapists feel that practices are unethical and/or mistreatment between management and employees or employees and employees yet nothing is done by authority figures. I would not recommend anyone work for this company, support from management is nonexistent and this is very evident from therapists to housekeeping staff. It negatively impacts everyone.
