I have been working at Genesis HealthCare full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Flexible with time off and scheduling. Good team players (but there is always that one...), great pay and above average benefits. They are the most patient first oriented rehab company I've ever worked for in 14 years. Documentation is excellent and completed on Itouch. Assistants at my facility do not do the progress notes, only the daily notes...of course this is not a pro for the PTs or the OTs.

Cons

There is no process of weeding out people who waste time and have low productivity. By weeding out I mean writing up an employee if he or she gets less that 30% below expected productivity. It is really easy where I work to get your expected productivity, and generally there are a few others that waste a lot of time with personal calls and chit chat which makes it harder for the rest of the team.

Advice to Management

Keep track of all your employees...offer bonuses to those who excel as therapists as well as those who excel in their productivity. Incentives as well as criticism.

    I worked at Genesis HealthCare part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They offer generous time off.

    Cons

    You can NOT USE your time off. even if you have permission.Nor can you " help the aides". Really This is what I Was told. Do not answer call lights or toilet pts.etc.or youwill be fired. Worst place I 've
    ever worked. Some of the licensed staff leave alot to be desired in the way of proffessionalism

    Advice to Management

    Some of us still believe in holistic nursing. Notice the revolving door.

    I have been working at Genesis HealthCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Large company = Lower benefit cost; Provided CEU's for free; Provided pretty good education regarding medicare changes and how to cope.

    Cons

    Productivity requirements are rather high and they monitor them on a DAILY basis so you better be able to explain where you are at every minute of the day and why your productivity does not meet expectations if that is the case. They want you to pick up every patient that you evaluate even if it is inappropriate and you are duplicating services. Medicare needs to go in and blow the lid off this money hungry corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating therapists like we are grocery store clerks.... We are as productive as possible. Sometimes things happen outside of our control and we don't need to be lectured daily on how to be more productive. Most of us have a Master's degree and can figure a few things out for ourselves. We are ethical people and will do what we feel in appropriate...thank you very much.
