    I worked at HealthSouth Rehabilitation Institute of Tucson full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hands on patient care, good pay, fun coworkers.

    Cons

    Poor communication, lack of following policies, high patient ratio and very large work load.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with staff, treat techs as they are appreciated because nursing techs work extremely hard and really are the back bone to the hospital. Provide more incentive to increase team moral for such hard work being done daily.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at HealthSouth Rehabilitation Institute of Tucson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Let you work as much overtime as you want great bonuses...

    Cons

    Will work you short staffed with 20-30 patients on your own then write you up if you don't do something menial..they always take nurses side over techs so the turnover is excessive.

    Advice to Management

    Less patient load will help to ensure that all patient are taking care of .get your nurses up off there butts to help when we are short staffed.!

    I have been working at HealthSouth Rehabilitation Institute of Tucson as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You will meet a dedicated team of professionals and therapist who are eager to assist in every way.

    Cons

    This hospital rehab system has slowly eroded over the last 15 years. It used to be that inpatient rehabilitation worked like a well – oiled machine. Nursing would oversee every aspect of the patient's medical care and made sure they were stable for therapy sessions. Therapist got report from nurses to ensure patient readiness, safety and comfort. Therapy itself was administered by diagnoses algorhythm. Therapy would later report to nurses if there were any complications or concerns. Nurses addressed these issues based on assessment, knowledge of the patient's current and previous medical issues, and of course their training. Any issues outside of the scope of nursing practice were deferred to the Rehab Physiatrist, internal medicine physician, or appropriate physician consultant. By the time the rehab physician would enter into the facility, he or she could see 30 to 40 patients because the nurses were practicing AS NURSES. The eyes and ears of the physician and partner in wellness with the patient and ancillary department.

    Unfortunately, this is no longer the case at this facility.

    Now the nurses have been stripped of their autonomy and basically perform as a CNA. I believe this is in an effort to place all liability within the "lap" of physicians. However, we all know in a litigious culture such as ours - no one is sheltered in the case of bad medicine or poor outcomes. I digress ....

    What this has lead to is disjointed, mediocre rehab within this facility. Physicians can no longer rely on their nurse – partner in care for their patients. Therapists are taking patients to the gym without getting clearance from nurses. AND, by-passing RNs and going directly to physicians for orders/ information typically known and completed by a registered nurse. Nurses are performing like secretaries and CNAs, clicking as many boxes off so as to avoid being reprimanded by upper management for incomplete documentation. Rehab physicians are doing the bare minimum, just to be able to keep up with the ridiculous demands of being nurse, doctor, secretary, and case manager at the same time.

    Advice to Management

    Release the power of Nursing. Invest in nursing and you have invested in the core of what makes every good system into a GREAT system. Patients will do better, physicians will be much more satisfied, therapy outcomes will improve.

    I worked at HealthSouth Rehabilitation Institute of Tucson full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nurse Manager: Seems like a great salary but not when you figure in the number of hours required. Great staff!!

    Cons

    Understaffed, Upper administration does not believe, "happy staff, happy patients." They do not care about nursing staff and patient safety.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your staff and the turnover will decrease.

    High wage compensation for per diem employees
    Made lifelong friends

    Cons

    High workload/patient to nurse ratio
    Forms to fill out if you stay late, which cause you to stay even later

    The more proficient you become the higher the workload
    No bonuses, rewards are based on a point system specific to the company
    No admission nurse
    Many unstable clients admitted

    Advice to Management

    Decrease nurse/technician to patient ratio
    Genuinely listen to employee concerns instead of minimizing them so that you don't have to take it your boss
    Hire registry staff when short staffed instead of burning out current staff
    Give out bonuses in monetary compensation
