    Pros

    Good pay and great benefits

    Cons

    too much inner office politics and favoritism

    Advice to Management

    Higher management should be more pro-active in evaluating each facility and the daily activities of your managerial teams that are in place.

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

    Pros

    The ability to stretch knowledge and to participate in Executive Council and Quality Control is remarkable. Regional as well as National Pharmacist teams are available to ask questions.

    Cons

    Staffing needs to be evaluated. The late arrival of admissions pushed workload to later staffing hours. Being available 24/7 decreases family time.

    Advice to Management

    Work load can be too much. Patient load is patient load. Shear volume constitutes the need for more man hours.

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

    Pros

    They have really good insurance and for the most part a good group of nurses that work as a team together.

    Cons

    Nurse to patient ratio is horrible for this type of environment, not safe for patients or the employees. Seems to becoming more of a LTAC than a true rehab.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to listen to your employees concerns and be more of a part of the team instead of pointing fingers. When we are short staff show us that you are truly part of our team and come in with your scrubs on and HELP.

    "They try but fall short"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at HealthSouth part-time

    Pros

    Opportunities for additional hours with good bonus pay. I work with wonderful nurses and love the patient population.

    Cons

    Short handed, thus the good bonus pay. Too many on-call days for full and part time employees. Not appreciative of staff. CEO and company are clueless to what is happening on the floor with the actual patients. They don't consider patient safety, appropriateness, or desire before having them come. It's all money, which I understand to a certain degree, but after that, it's just unsafe.

    Advice to Management

    Have CEO, nurse managers, and corporate people spend a few days on the floor shadowing nurses and therapists. Then, actually care how the patients that are supposed to be benefiting from our services are responding and are being helped. Be a little more selective of patients that come. 100 yr old patients that feel tortured to participate in 3 hours of therapy, or physically can not participate are not appropriate and we are not helping them. Also, not an appropriate place for hospice patients that are very near the end of their lives.

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

    Pros

    Employee meals are cheap
    The patients
    PTO

    Cons

    Out-dated equipment
    Human resources doesn't know how to do their job
    Management rarely supports the employee
    Patient to employee ratio is horrible, especially at night
    Not enough staff to accommodate heavier lift patients (not the patients fault)
    Nurse attitude toward CNA staff could be better
    The "not my patient" attitude

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the rest of the reviews here.
    Protect your employees from harm
    Take a work injury seriously
    Treat everyone equally
