    I worked at RehabCare

    Pros

    Making new friends and contacts. Overall, the staff therapist of all disciplines are good caring devoted people all struggling to do the right thing, bound to the company secondary to lack of jobs elswhere.
    We all want to provide excellent patient care. And in all honesty. ..we do the best we can despite the bureaucracy.

    Cons

    My current supervisor lacks flexibility. Productivity is impossible to accurately maintain. No time to take care of all other mandatory videos/quizzes/etc during work time...insurance benefits are terrible. No holiday/sick time accrual (all lumped into yearly PTO) no extra pay for working holidays. Appears to not value COTA ' S and PTA ' S
    Overall, worst company I've ever worked for. (I keep praying for an ethical boss)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Send your managers and supervisors to management classes and make them mandatory. ..just because they can be a supervisor. ..doesn't mean they should be.

    I have been working at RehabCare

    Pros

    Good amount of vacation time. That's the one positive I can think of. I did enjoy my coworkers and staff.

    Cons

    I don't know where to start with the "cons", there are so many! I think the thing that bothered me the most was the fact that the company doesn't care about employees or patients...it's really just about productivity and $$$$. This company doesn't seem to value quality care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please go work at a seven - eleven or something...This is healthCARE. You all may have advanced business degrees, but you don't care about PEOPLE! This is healthCARE and we should be united in our efforts to provide good care. Rehabcare seems focused on making a buck, but that's about it. Where is the compassion for employees and those we care for on a daily basis? Patients and employees can not be reduced to numbers on a report.

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

    Pros

    The pay is good, but the benefits are mediocre. The employees and program director work well together as a cohesive team.

    Cons

    I was hired for full time, haven't seen better than 30 hours in 2.5 months. It's hard work and a lot of paperwork. High expectations for productivity without always giving you the tools necessary to meet it, causing it to become a numbers game and often some unethical practices with grouping treatments and running time after separately.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pushing the numbers

    Pros

    Great local people to work with
    Good facilities
    Flexible schedule

    Cons

    Hired at full-time but have never received full-time hours because of productivity restrictions. When this is brought up the therapists and assistants receive the blame for not doing enough screens. The corporation cares more about how much money they make back from Medicare reimbursement than making sure their therapy staff is happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember it's the therapists in the field that are making you money so take care of them. The productivity requirement needs to be removed or at least lessened.

    I worked at RehabCare full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    good benefits, they actually listen to therapists opinions.

    Cons

    however Tracy the area manager for Michigan is over worked. I had many a good encounter with her. However, id taken a job as manager and one month later changed to therapist at the same facility. They bought a new you manager in who was okay till a temp PTA came to work. He was loud and obnoxious and destroyed the harmony of the clinic and team. She listened to him. Id been off on medical leave and when i returned found he was sexually inappropriate with the younger therapists and derogatory to the patients. Then he tried to cause trouble for me. I had been an employee for 5 years with RehabCare and after i found he had taken an inappropriate phono of a resident and shared it with family and friends i told the manager 3 times that she needed to do something about this. I left her a final warning that she needed to do something about it or i would. the next day she had tracy fire me for i can't even remember what she called it. WHY DIDnt she ask me before she did this. It ended up to be the biggest mess and cost many their jobs and RehabCare a lot of money. MT Problem with this company is they are too big and Area Managers need to take a look at what is going on in their facilities before tossing the axe

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire more Area managers or at least and HR person to manage the facility personnnel.
