    I have been working at Kentfield Rehabilitation & Specialty Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Management cares, nurses work together and are supportive and friendly. Average patient stay is 32 days so nurses get to know them well. Flexible scheduling and fair critiques of performance. I would only recommend this position as a stepping stone to a better career.

    Cons

    Acuity level is higher and job demand is greater. 5:1 staffing ratio can be overwhelming. A majority of the CNA's are not cooperative and some of them are insubordinate with nurses. Very fast paced environment.

    Advice to Management

    4:1 ratios for nurses.

    Management focuses more on bottom line than on care givers

    Your greatest asset is you staff, without them, you wouldn't be in business

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Kentfield Rehabilitation & Specialty Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's a job with a meager paycheck.

    Cons

    Bad Management. Bad Management. Bad Management.
    Low moral among employee's.
    Old, outdated equipment to work with.
    Dirty, smelly, unsanitary conditions to work in.
    Not enough staff for the workload.
    Low, low, low pay for the amount of work expected from you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop padding your own paychecks and spread the profit to your employee's. Tell them "Thanks" "Good job" "You're valued" instead of work more for less. Don't pick one bad thing to reprimand them instead of the 10 things they did right with no acknowledgement from you.

    I have been working at Kentfield Rehabilitation & Specialty Hospital full-time

    Pros

    The therapist is provided with one hour of time to treat a patient with complete freedom of treatment style. Staff is supportive of each other. There is scheduled documentation time and scheduled staff meetings and inservices. The therapy manager is objective, calm and fair minded. There is a large open gym and two private treatment rooms with closing doors--a third private room is available two days a week. Hand therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and wound care are available within the building complex and you can cross refer as appropriate as well as confer with these disciplines.

    Cons

    The treatment gym is very ugly and has antiquated equipment. It does project an atmosphere of healing. would benefit from an influx of beauty and feng shui.
    If there is an schedule opening the therapist may be required to work in the associated hospital which is a very scary place servicing the sickest of the sick and the morbidly obese in very tiny rooms.
    oh yes, and you have to clock in a time clock--even if you have your DPT--yes, doctor you must punch a clock. of course the MD's don't have to.

    Advice to Management

    take away that time clock. it is an insult to education medical professionals and completely inappropriate. it sends a message that you think of the therapists as factory workers and do not appreciate their education and abilities.

    Pros

    Great people who really care about patients. Smallish staff, family like atmosphere. Good promotion from within for the nursing department - lots of nurse managers were once floor nurses.

    Cons

    Can be stressful, but that's just how working in healthcare is! The IT systems could use some help. Facility is old, but it's under construction so hopefully it will be nicer when completed.

    Pros

    It's small. All disciplines available on one floor including their own pharmacy and lab. Staff works as a team. Doctors and other disciplines very knowledgeable and approachable.

    Cons

    Most of the time they are out of compliance. Don't follow proper protocols. Management doesn't care about quality of care or safe patient care. Forces charge nurse to be break relief. Often nurses don't get a break. DON acts as charge nurse sometimes not allowing for proper breaks. JCHO nightmare! Labor laws out the window!

    Advice to Management

    Audit your staff and yourself. You're setting up your nurses to fail.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and awesome coworkers

    Cons

    Poor pay, no acknowledgement for a job well done, no extra if working holiday, nurse to patient ratio is non existent.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a fair wage, increase rate of earning PTO, make the Nursing ratios fair and good staff will stay longer and be happier employees.

    Pros

    Great experience in gaining clinical skills and critical thinking. Able to work with many different types of people. Nurses and CNA's are great.

    Cons

    Staffing. The patient to nurse ratio makes it difficult to provide the best quality of care most management expects of us causing stress among the staff which also effects teamwork. Staffing is hard, being cancelled and always getting texts that they are short staffed. There isn't much incentive to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of looking more into for profit, think of the staff. We are the backbone and quality goes down if we aren't supported adequately. This is a very difficult place to work with, with high turn over rates. It is a great stepping stone to get into the major hospitals, but there really is no incentive to work here.
