Pros

-Great team of coworkers-doctor, speech, PT/OT on the same team, best place to go for stroke

-Clean, modern facility,good selection of treatment equipment

-Good benefits

Cons

-Below average pay compared to other facilites, I know waiters that make as much as they pay their nurses and PTAs, and PTAs/COTAs that make as much or more at other locations that make as much as the PTs/OTs at HS, so there's bound to be dissatisfaction.

-No internal chain of command,ie when you have techs and transporters feeling like they are equivalent to nurses and therapists there is a problem, and noone in management reprimands them. I believe clinical staff should be treated with some regard from support staff.

-The company operates with too few people, the nurse/therapist to patient ratio is horrible, long wait times for patient using call bells, staffing relies completely on patient census-understaffed.

-The bottom line is the main criteria, however at my facility there are probably 20 clinical staff and 80 other people that are assistant administrators or "managers" of this or that, while clinical staff probably ends up making much less than these people.

-paperwork is insane, people have charts that are the size of an encyclopedia, and there may be more than one of these encyclopedias created for a 9-14 day stay, they should go to computer

-There should be some way to calculate patient acuity into the census, there are obviously people that need 1-1 time that don't get it because census is calculated based on raw numbers, especially lower level patients (stroke,TBI,amputees,cardiac,dementia,Parkinson's,etc)

Advice to Management

Hire more people, it may cost more, but patients would truly get the best treatment, instead of having a therapist or nurse rush back and forth from one patient to the next especially when there are clearly patients that need 1 on 1 time. To even qualify for admission, a patient is not going to be a normal healthy person in the first place. Also the patient satisfaction scores would go up and improve the business.

Also, there needs to be a better way to calculate census, other than just raw numbers.

    I worked at HealthSouth part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great team of people. Management is very supportive. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a job in the healthcare field.

    Cons

    Charting system needs updating. Sometimes patient to nurse or aide ratio too high. True of most cases in the health care profession.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to maintain support to your employees. Encourage advancement.
