    "Unethical"

    Pros

    Supportive upper management with clinical questions and tech support, nice co-workers, nice facility.

    Cons

    Management claims to value the therapists' input on what is clinically appropriate, however, when that input does not make money it is meaningless to them. Unrealistic RUG levels are set by those who have never before met the patients, and if the treating therapist suggests it is inappropriate the response is basically "well that's nice, but you WILL get 75 minutes with that patient by any means necessary or the facility will lose money." I was chastised for notifying my supervisors about patients not tolerating the Ultra-High treatment times set for them and told to use my "therapeutic sense of self" and to "get creative" to address the problem, really?!? It is all about the bottom line, not what the therapist thinks is clinically appropriate. I had to literally tell my supervisor my patient was actively dying before she would accept a patient's refusal to be treated by me one day. Do not work for Burger unless you want to be bullied into committing Medicare fraud!!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your therapists! Yes you are a business, but please don't place your therapists in the position of having to choose between doing what they know to be right and ethical and keeping their job. Your therapists and your patients will thank you.

    I have been working at Burger Rehabilitation Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They only make verbal promises but have you sign unenforceable contracts that intimidate you to pay them back money if you leave even if they did not give you a sign on bonus. H1B applicants beware, it will take over 5 years and they will still intimidate you with unlawful clauses in their contracts

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the Pros were already pretty bad. They are not interested in care, your patients, or you at all. A regional director even referred to elderly patients at "children" and eluding to the fact that they deserve less. The elderly are not children. And if you had to work with children... does that mean you're suppose to treat them less?
    They are immature in handling employee grievances and are retaliatory in nature. No job is worth is. You became a therapist because you have a caring personality. Don't get sucked it. Any weird clauses in your contract. Call the Labor Department. Its free. They are relying on you not to want to spend money on a lawyer for their unlawful contracts. Bottom line, the labor department is free and can advise you. You should not have to pay they just because you want to leave and get a better job even. Really. This is true. Not too many employees talk about it because they have been scared. Do not support this type of environment.

    Advice to Management

    Times up. Not everyone can be bullied or manipulated.

    I have been working at Burger Rehabilitation Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Established company with many contracts throughout northern California.

    Cons

    More concerned with finding cheap staff, sacrificing quality of patient care. Consistently dismantled teams to bring in new staff. Did not support the therapy team - from the people headquartered in Sacramento to the local director. Numbers and power to control others are the driving forces.

    One gets the feeling therapy personnel exist to support administration instead of the other way around.

    Advice to Management

    Building a good therapy team is primary to building a good reputation. When a good team is dismantled to save money and random personnel brought in people notice. People talk, reviews get posted. It doesn't take long for the reputation of Burger to spread (among therapists, among people with family members in therapy, among nursing facilities).

    I worked at Burger Rehabilitation Systems as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Only positive thing was staff at clinic. They had compassionate support staff, but they were not allowed to do things were forced to run all issues through upper level management to a point that was detrimental to patient communication.

    Cons

    Poor communication from upper management. Bullying tactics from HR and C level management. Pt complaints were not taken seriously or addressed.

    Advice to Management

    treat your employees as you wish to be treated. focus more on fostering staff as opposed to bullying them. health care is in a state of flux and unfortunately companies like Burger are part of the problem.
