    Pros

    Great co workers, supportive immediate supervisors

    Cons

    Complete lack of respect and appreciation for hourly employees, constant change in policy and procedures without impact evaluation, a "blame the employee" mentality when things go wrong without considering staffing and resource deficits, accomadation of one group of employees at teh expense of others.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage HONEST feedback from employees, consider the possibility that we do our jobs every day, we may have a good idea of what works and what doesn't. Quit playing divide and conquer by pittng shifts and rotations against one another. Focus on real issues, instead of using created ones as a smolescreen.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, long time friendships.

    Cons

    Being told to clock out and then finish my work. Being yelled at in front of my peers. Being so disruptive on a daily basis that it is almost impossible to get work done. Everyday having a different focus on a new process none which envoles patient care. Being pitted against other departments. Only caring about how many patients we can get in an not about taking care of the ones we have, and finally you only have a chance for promotion if your a male.

    Advice to Management

    Support the hospital as a whole, and open your eyes to what's really going on.

    Pros

    I'm sorry but the only reason I work for them is because our previous co was purchased by them & I had no choice. I was optimistic when they took over but that is gone. There horrible & could care less about there employees & in turn that directly reflects on how much they care about the patients in the facility

    Cons

    Absolutely everything!!!!! The turn over since they came is insane & they just don't care. They cut our hours tremendously & being a hired full time employee being forced to use all our PTO & dealing w unacceptable loss of hours( like 20-25 per pay) has really taken it's toll on everyone. They treat us like slaves wanting 1 person to handle a patient load of like 15-20 patients is not ok nor safe. All they care about is there bottom line apparently not realising that the employees are the face of there hospital & when u work them to death & treat them like garbage how are we supposed todo our job adequately & gi e the patients the care they allare paying for & deserve. I wouldn't recommend anyone to this hospital & that is very sad because before they came along I as well as many others loved there job now it's just where we go to pay our bills. I've talked to corporate regarding this & they don't care In the least.

    Advice to Management

    Show the people who run your hospital (ie the employees) the respect we've earned & deserve & know it's not all about you. The patients are the priority & maybe if u wanted your hospital to be more successful you would act that way. I wish someone would take your hours from youikd you've done to us so you could see what your doing

    I worked at LifeCare Hospitals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Humm, give me a minute

    Cons

    Management from the Local CEO Down completely cliqueish, undereducated and undertrained. In short a complete clusterfunk. The CEO shows up less than 50% of the time, blows hot air, his management team, with only a notable exception or two, is made up of third stringers that couldn't get hired anywhere else. Corporate tolerates and condones this.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves

    I have been working at LifeCare Hospitals full-time

    Pros

    None. If I could have given zero stars, I would have.

    Cons

    They bought us from a company that was great to work for. They said they would show us "how a hospital is run." First, they declared bankruptcy, and now they are cutting back so much that full-time people are only getting about 25 hours a week. At this rate, I'll be out of PTO time soon. They still expect all the work to get done, but in much less time, with fewer people. Morale is terrible. They took a great hospital and they ruined it.

    Advice to Management

    I have been told that a casual employee has to stay on the schedule in place of me, even though I am full-time and my hours have been cut back severely. I was told that we have to keep the casuals happy, or we won't have them when we need them. That implies that casuals are more important to you than full-time people. Why is that? Is it because you don't have to pay for their benefits or give them raises? Do you really think people aren't going to figure this out? If you want casuals so bad, be careful what you wish for, because you will end up with only casuals and part-timers when all your full-time employees get disgusted and leave.

    Pros

    Pretty good pay, at first

    Cons

    New CEO disrespects women. Always trying to short your time. Not patient focused. Constant meetings, micromanagement, offensive demands. Just looking out for his own bonus, doesn't care about good patient care. You will end up not getting the hours they promise at hire.You will have a lot more and sicker patients than they promise you, and the charting is ridiculous. The health insurance is cheap but very poor plan.

    Advice to Management

    Stop paying guys a lot of money just because they are men. Do well by doing good, not by promoting micromanagers with no team building skills. Shreveport is not Ruston. Our doctors want excellence in care, lots of PT/OT/RT/dietary/speech/wound care, not some guys standing around talking about politics and religion. Don't embarass them in front of their patients by going dirt cheap on all supplies and materials and having things broken, crappy beds, short staffing.
