    I have been working at Select Medical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Once you do a year at Select everywhere else is a breeze

    Cons

    Management stays in their offices, always short on nursing, unethical practices of holding people until insurance will no longer pay not when patient is ready to go, poor communication, case management department is full of uneducated people who don't care, uses agency nurses that have no clue

    Advice to Management

    Get your head out of the clouds or your bonuses and actually do your job. Get out of your offices and go help. Focus on job retention, when 65% leave within 90 days, you have a problem.

    I have been working at Select Medical (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good experience in a variety of areas. Some good co-workers.

    Cons

    Management does not care. Staff that doesn't perform their job yet no follow through with management to stop problems.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being happy being a transitional employer. Be present. Say what you mean mean what you say. Follow trough. Walk a mile in your employees shoes.

    Pros

    Generous pto
    Extended illness days
    Cpr and Acls paid for
    Paid training education
    12 hour shifts

    Cons

    Corporate cares about the bottom line before proper patient care.
    Inappropriate staffing combined with high expectations of added duties that are impossible to complete In a 12 hr shift.
    Perpetual fear of losing your job.
    Bullying by management
    Never having enough supplies to do ur job.
    Patient satisfaction surveys are more of a concern as opposed to giving the patient the proper treatment plan for the best clinical outcome. Ie: If the patient cannot drink water and has failed a swallow test. Management gets angry at us. Because the patient is not happy.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees better
    Give us the tools we need to complete our job
    Stop the bullying
    Care about our patients like we do
    Have realistic expectations
    Get rid of the crazy cno. That walks around Inappropriatly touching the male staff. Who questions doctors during codes. And bullies staff.
    Hire more staff to bring up the hospital census and educate the management on how to properly Treat and retain staff.
    Focus more on patient care and clinical outcomes than satisfaction surverys.

    I have been working at Select Medical full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good nurses, decent care, good pay, flexible hours

    Cons

    Terrible management. I was hired, then my nursing supervisor left immediately. I was "left adrift on memory bliss."
    Mediocre to terrible training. It's "sink or swim" training. I was on my own after a week and a half. Good luck with that.
    Unrealistic expectations for new grads...or nurses in general.
    "Nurses Eat Their Young." Nuff 'said.
    No training...oh, that's right...I said that already
    Backbitting, no team player. Ask another nurse for help and you'll probably get the vaunted "eye roll."

    Advice to Management

    Blow up and start over. Realistically.
    1. Solid polices
    2. Checklists for new hires...everything from computers to passwords to contacting doctors to training skills
    3. A defined six week training.

    Pros

    Great to watch how people recover! Great pay, Excellent Therapy Team.

    Cons

    Need to work on team playing! Respecting all employee as one not cause of there titles.

    Advice to Management

    Respecting all employee as one not cause of there titles. If the work is hard are harder make sure the pay matches.
    "Just don't tell the employee you appreciate them show them as well". Always listen to the person who is doing the work hands on, they can give you more info then anyone.
