Loved working with the wide variety of clientele from adults to children.
Occupational Therapist (Current Employee) – Rochester, NY – January 2, 2014
CP Rochester is definately a very flexible facility in terms of life and work balance. I feel that the facility is really understanding and family orientated about time off and the ability to flex your time. I have had several continuing education courses paid for by the facility to increase my knowledge base but since it is a non-for profit facility, I needed to pick and choose what classes would be best benefical.
The caseload varies from client to client but the majority of clients present with deveopmental disabilities, TBI,and CVA. All the staff are very friendly and knowledgable. The clinic itself has been ungergoing a major transition in the last six months, hopefully for the better. I gained an incredible amount of skills working with this population that can be transitioned to many other facilities and populations.
I am not leaving by choice, but my husband is relocating to a different state and we are moving.
The most difficult aspect of working in this facility is two-fold: There is a lot of discord with communication - verbally and electronically. In the clinic, the three therapies treat in different rooms/clinics and only if there is issues with a client do the disciplines talk either in person, on the phone, or via email. I think across the board, wherever you go there will be communication break down and issues. It is important to be aware of this and to strive to continue to improve this day in and day out. During the clinic transition, there were key staff let go. This did create difficulties but everyone helped one another and came out better for it.
Friendly co-workers, flexible schedules, great clientele
Multi-disiciplinary approach is non-existant at this point in time.
