    I worked at HealthSouth part-time

    Pros

    Healthsouth was a very welcoming company. I have still been seeking the culture and appreciation that I felt at this company in my new role. They are really big on employee appreciation!

    Cons

    I can’t think of any cons. I truly enjoyed working here.

    I worked at HealthSouth full-time

    Pros

    Learned a variety of nursing skills. Co-worker and doctors were great.

    Cons

    Acuity of residents, ratios, always short-staffed, very acute and late admissions on Fridays when doctors have left for the weekend

    Advice to Management

    Better staff:patient ratios

    I worked at HealthSouth full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There were always plenty of extra shift available.

    Cons

    Many people called out often which would result in higher nurse to patient ratios. The acuity of inpatient acute care rehab is still just that - acute. Yet, you are expected to handle a higher load of patients than on a typical med surg floor despite no real difference in patient acuity.


  4. "Physical therapy tech"

    Pros

    The were few Pros working for this company; however, salary and benefits were above average for this area.

    Cons

    All departments need to work together instead of trying to tear each other down. Management does not abide by the ethics of the company and condones mistreat of staff by other staff.

    I have been working at HealthSouth (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are decent. 501l match to 5 percent

    Cons

    Poor management. Don’t care if you are short staffed and don’t try to fill call ins. Not a rehab anymore just a nursing home. There is a lot of favoritism to certain employees, and good luck to the rest of us. Supervisor s don’t help if you are behind.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and do your job! All you think about is the budget and your bonuses. Hire some real supervisors
