    I have been working at HealthSouth (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    In my experience, a company that truly desires to be as good as it can possibly be.

    Cons

    As small hospitals, we share all of the difficulties consistent with small footprint healthcare.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the pursuit.

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

    Pros

    Weekend Warrior pay is 34/hr, otherwise pay less than average like 26/hr. Working with PT is great but definitely this experience not worth all drama and high nurse:patient ratio.

    Cons

    Be prepared to have 6 to 11 patients at a time. CEO was walked out. Management is terrible. RUN AWAY.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your nurses. Improve nurse: patient ratio. Management is a joke. The types of patients here are not rehab appropriate! Every shift patient crashes because no one listens to the nurses!

    Pros

    Great food services manager
    Good benefits package

    Upper level management in the hospital wasn't great.
    Not a lot of teamwork between departments. Always seemed like the Nursing and Physical Therapy staffs were against the kitchen workers.

    too much inner office politics and favoritism

    Pros

    Healthsouth Valley of the Sun. Nice facility, great coworkers, competitive salary. Staff cares about the patients. Doctors of all specialties are available. Several case managers. Respiratory therapy. Certified nurses and therapists.

    Cons

    Nurse and tech ratio to patients is extremely high and stressful for the acuity level of the patients. This was the reason I left as well as all those that left while I was there. Management made no effort to change the ratio. There isn't a doctor present overnight.

    Advice to Management

    Lower the clinical staff/patient ratio by quiet a bit. The acuity of the patients is many times the same as a Med/Surg unit. Nurses and techs were so stressed at times that they were crying and completely and utterly overwhelmed. If the nurses and techs had way less patients, the acute care transfer rate would decrease, patient satisfaction would increase and expensive turnover would go away because everyone would stay and enjoy their work. Healthsouth would be THE place to work! I saw several good nurses trying to do the best they could, including myself, who loved the company and their co-workers, leave because the stress was just over the top.

    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.
