    I have been working at HealthSouth (More than a year)

    Pros

    I came from a company that was not transparent with their employees and did not motivate nor recognize their staff members. HealthSouth has not only made me feel like a valued employee, but I feel like I am a part of a family. They focus on identifying top notch rehab equipment to produce the best outcomes for our patients as well as top of the line technology for the employees to excel in their role. I feel like I matter at HealthSouth and I am not just an employee ID number.

    Cons

    I would like to see more innovative processes continue to be put in place. Continue to think outside of the box which will set us apart from our competitors!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to recognize your employees for their achievements and hard work.

    Pros

    The nursing staff is incredible. They work tirelessly and focus on quality patient care. Not only do they care for their patients and the patients' families, they are very considerate toward each other. As a tech I had more patients than the nurses, and yet they would take the time to help me out with the morning care. I have seen a diverse range of clinical settings and I must say the staff at Healthsouth are the ones you'd want to work with.

    Cons

    They recently switched to having four staff nurses in the morning shift and two techs, which means as a tech you might have up to ten patients, and you have to get them all up by 8-9ish for breakfast. A great feat when a lot of them are stroke, spinal cord injury patients.

    However, like I said, the staff work together and we tend to get things done despite how hectic mornings usually are.

    Advice to Management

    The nurse leadership at Healthsouth is topnotch. I honestly have nothing negative to say. The nurse chief supervisor, the supervisors, are all extremely considerate toward their staff, while maintain a firm, knowledgeable grip on the doings of all patients. Impressive doesn't cover it.
